2 doctors agree
In brief: 40grams protein diet
And low phosphrus diet (no cola, chocolate, hard beans, and dairy) also, low salt diet at 2000 mg sodium or less/ 24hrs and control calories per instructions if diabetes is present.
Of course this patient sees a nephrologist and you can get more details from him or her or a dietitian.
