In patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), specialized nutritional therapy may help reduce the risk of electrolyte imbalances, vitamin deficiencies, and protein energy malnutrition. Protein-restricted diets may slow the progression of renal disease and decrease the risk of morbidity and mortality in patients with CKD. In this review, we discuss some of the major nutritional concerns in individuals with CKD and offer practical recommendations for dietary therapy.
