Supplements May Help Delay Dialysis
Adding ketoanalogues to very low-protein diets for
patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) significantly
delays dialysis initiation..

Quote:A Romanian study indicated that patients on a ketoanalogue-supplemented very-low-protein diet (sVLPD) had a smaller decline per year in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) than did patients on a conventional low-protein diet (LPD): 2.1 vs. 4.9 mL/min/1.73 m2.

“This represents a 43% slower decline in their renal function, which translates into a gain of almost one year without the need for dialysis,” explained lead investigator Liliana Garneata, MD, of the Dr. Carol Davila Teaching Hospital of Nephrology in Bucharest, Romania. “These patients were safely managed by nutritional intervention and monitoring for almost one year, rather than having to go on dialysis immediately.”

sounds interesting, but one should never try changing
their diet without consulting their doctor first, if suffering
from CKD.

SS I read something similar is a book written by John Hopkins study that said if protein could be replaced by essential amino acids, one could avoid dialysis for a very long time and possible avoid it all together. the books goes into nutrion. however, i have been leary of it and have not tried it.

Yes, I would be cautious of any new finding myself, how often
have we heard something only to find out the opposite later.
Although, Kidneyhope, when I first was placed on a renal diet,
before dialysis that is, I had a limited amount of protein that
I was allowed to consume in a day, I believe it was something
like a total of 60 grams per day. Years later and after I was
back on dialysis, we were told to increase the protein by much
more than what was thought to be healthy for us. Patients
were losing muscle mass and in general not doing well, once
they started to increase the protein, they began to see a positve
change in dialysis patients.
