LOW PROTEIN DIETS CAN DELAY KIDNEY FAILURE IN PEOPLE WITH KIDNEY DISEASE (DIABETIC KIDNEY DISEASE EXCLUDED)

Kidney disease (nephropathy) can lead to kidney failure (end-stage kidney disease). A diet low in protein is sometimes recommended to try to slow the progression of kidney disease. Monitoring compliance with a protein-restricted diet is possible by determining urea production since urea is a byproduct of the degradation of all proteins. If urea production is reduced then the accumulation of toxins will be limited.The review of studies for people with kidney disease (diabetic kidney disease excluded) found that low protein diets can delay end-stage kidney disease. —Cochrane Review
