Probiotics and The Benefits

  • It is becoming more widely accepted that people with CKD have altered gut flora.
  • In individual with CKD, they have more pathogenic bacteria in the gut compared to ‘good bacterias’ (Stephen et al., 1998)
  • The pathogenic bacteria ferment undigested excess protein in the intestine, therefore produce uremic wastes which are burden for kidneys (Ranganathan et al., 2014).


  • Therefore, intake of probiotics helps to balance the intestinal flora, thus improving the digestive and immune systems.
  • Balancing of the gut flora prevents overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria which produce uremic toxins (Tao et al., 2019).
  • Probiotic also enhances the removal of uremic toxin wastes in the colon to reduce the kidney’s burden.
