In 2016, research in Scientific Reports found a benefit of drinking milk. Participants who drank low-fat milk had a lower risk of developing chronic kidney disease. Milk provides essential minerals for your kidneys, such as calcium, protein, and B vitamins, according to the National Kidney Foundation.

Per the 2016 study, regular and high-fat milk did not seem to change the outcome. For your kidneys, low-fat milk is the best option. Remember that milk also contains phosphorus and potassium, so limit the drink if you have or are recovering from a kidney ailment.
