Diet restriction is only one aspect of treatments for Chronic Kidney Disease patients, but is not enough for them to protect the kidneys. Timely and proper medication is necessary to control certain complication and improve kidney function. You are suggested to do as follows.

-Control high blood pressure and high blood sugar levels. Some problems such as hypertension, diabetes, heart attack or infections can all damage the kidneys.
