Contains high sodium content

While cottage cheese is beneficial for bone and teeth health because it supplies calcium, be warned about its high sodium amount- one cup has over 900 mg. It can increase blood pressure, bloating, and water retention. Again, if consumed in excess, higher calcium amounts could raise the risk of prostate cancer.

Can cause weight loss

Studies indicate that eating cottage cheese alongside other foods like vegetables, fruits, and whole grain can promote weight loss. Other research also suggests that eating cottage cheese helps obese and overweight individuals attain sustainable lean muscle gain and fat loss due to its high protein content.

The work of a family doctor includes a wide range of clinical diversity, which requires extensive knowledge and erudition from a specialist. However, I believe that the most important thing for a family doctor is to be human because the cooperation and understanding between the doctor and the patient are crucial in ensuring successful health care. On my days off, I love being in nature. Since childhood, I have been passionate about playing chess and tennis. Whenever I have time off, I enjoy traveling around the world.
