Depending on your stage of kidney disease, specific nutrients in your diet should be limited. For instance, Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients should limit protein, while End-Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD) patients should increase protein to offset what is lost during dialysis. If you are unsure about your nutrition requirements, speak with your Somatus dietitian or a medical provider.
