In brief: Control oral liquids

The more the liquid intake is, the more the need to remove fluids during hemodialysis, the more chances are for cramping, fatigue, and low blood pressure.
Very strict salt intake makes it easy to drink within 50 oz per day. No cured meat, pickles, cheese, salted nuts will make life easy. Under 2000 milligrams of sodium per day is the way to go. Will also save need for blood pressure meds.

The biggest risk of kidney failure is increased risk of death from cardiac causes.
This can only be reduced by restoring kidney function bt kidney transplantation.
