I know I frequently post about protein requirements, but twice last week I was asked about it. If you are consuming enough calories per day and do not have nutrient absorption issues, you are getting enough protein.
As Dr. Greger says, you should be more concerned about too much protein. Dr. Greger also tells us that, “Diet plays a role in kidney function decline. Specifically, diets higher in animal protein, animal fat, and cholesterol may be associated with protein leakage in the urine (a sign of kidney damage), and generally, diets higher in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains but lower in meat and sweets may be protective against kidney function decline.” (Protein Source: An Acid Test for Kidney Function)

Written By Michael Greger M.D. FACLM on April 11th, 2019: “People are actually more likely to suffer from protein excess than protein deficiency. “The adverse effects associated with long-term high protein/high meat intake” diets may include disorders of bone and calcium balance, disorders of kidney function, increased cancer risk, disorders of the liver, and worsening of coronary artery disease. Considering all of these potential disease risks, there is currently no reasonable scientific basis to recommend protein consumption above the current recommended daily allowance.”
