Animals with experimental renal disease maintained on diets restricted in protein develop less severe renal lesions and less proteinuria than do animals maintained on a normal or high protein diet. To determine whether restriction of dietary protein will reduce urinary albumin excretion in patients with established nephrosis and whether such dietary restriction will result in decreased albumin pools, we performed paired studies on nine nephrotic patients. They were fed sequential diets with a… CONTINUE READING
