The answer is no. Protein is necessary in the body, but when it has too much, it produces a waste called urea, which is difficult for damaged kidneys to remove. A person with a damaged kidney will have problems getting rid of these waste from protein metabolism.The key with kidney failure is to have just enough protein instead of taking in excess amounts.

Dietary protein contains nitrogen products, which the kidneys must remove. Eating too much protein can workload kidneys, contributing to existing disease. A survey in 2003 showed that people with mild kidney impairment saw increased damage with high protein intake, especially after eating meat. Kidney failure and other kidney disease patients should contains a balanced protein.

Kidney failure patients should not eat a lot of protein and it does not mean people with reduced renal function should not consume protein anymore.
