    Too much protein will increase the damaged kidneys’ burden, so a low protein diet can help you reduce the kidneys’ workload. However, it is well known that protein is very important nutrition in our body. In order to guarantee the body’s health, high-quality protein will produce less wastes and can supply necessary nutrients.

    2. Limit intake of sodium

    A low sodium diet is helpful for relieving swelling and high blood pressure, which are common symptoms for patients with kidney damage.
