ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comments on a medical study finding a way to delay end-stage renal disease or death in stage 3 to 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD). The study revealed that by reducing accumulation of the by-products of protein catabolism or by restricting dietary protein, the end stage of CKD may be delayed. This result was seen in trials comparing diets allowing only 0.3 to 0.6 g of protein/kg per day with unrestricted diets.
