Specializes in Internal Medicine

Certain patients with chronic kidney disease are recommended to take in a high protein diet, while others are told to restrict protein in their diet. Your nephrologist, who knows what kind of kidney disorder, (including your serum and urine protein status), you have, is best to advise you about this matter.
