See below: Speak to your dietician at the center. Generally fluid and salt restriction depending on how much urine you are still making.There are phosphorous restrictions.The dietician will prescribe how much protein consumption is right for you. Ask them about Albumin level in your blood. As a aside speak to your doctor regarding getting a kidney transplant.
