This is : Part of a complex condition: see a nephrologist if you have not. Eat animal protein not more than twice a week (19 of 21 meals a week should be vegan), avoid salt, cheese, bacon, soy sauce, kosher salt, garlic ; onion salt, adobo, bouillion ; other sources of sodium. See my wwebsite. www.thepmc.org.
