Basic information of nutritional therapy in diabetic kidney disease

Suitable food choices are important to prevent diabetic kidney disease or treat it at different stages.

If you have been diagnosed with an increased risk or the onset of diabetic kidney disease, the appropriate diet focuses on moderate protein intake, low salt content, overall heart-healthy choices, and suitable energy intake in relation to weight and possible need for weight loss.

The severity of kidney disease determines the extent to which attention must be paid to different dietary contents.
