Twelve patients with chronic renal failure who exhibited a progressive decline in 24-hour creatinine clearance, despite being given for 2 to 10 months a diet containing 0.3 g per kg ideal weight of protein and 7 to 9 g mg per kg ideal weight of phosphorus, supplemented with vitamins, CaCO3, and 10 g per day of essential amino acids, were changed to a supplement containing predominantly ketoacids. In six patients whose serum creatinine was 7.5 mg/dl or greater at changeover, progression… 
Progression of chronic renal failure on substituting a ketoacid supplement for an amino acid supplement.
TLDR
The results suggest that this ketoacid supplement slows progression by approximately half, compared with an essential amino acid supplement, with no change in diet.
A crossover comparison of progression of chronic renal failure: ketoacids versus amino acids.
TLDR
It is concluded that KA slow progression, relative to AA, independently of protein or phosphorus intake, in patients on this regimen is concluded.
Progression of chronic renal failure is related to glucocorticoid production.
TLDR
Progression of chronic renal failure during 35 treatment periods in 27 patients was measured as the rate of change of bimonthly radioisotope GFR for an average of 15 months, and additional significant regressors appeared: serum triglycerides and polycystic kidney disease and ketoacid treatment, which tended to be associated with more rapid progression.

TLDR
It is shown that when nephrotic patients are given this regimen, they rarely exhibit hypoalbuminemia, in contrast to the reported 25–50% hypo Albuminemia at the onset of dialysis nationwide, and their survival for the first 2 years on dialysis is much improved, in comparison with the national experience, adjusted for age, sex, and cause of renal disease.
Effect of amino acid, ketoacid supplementation to a low-protein diet on diabetic nephropathy with chronic renal failure
TLDR
Type 1 diabetics with ‘overt’ diabetic nephropathy (DN) have a rapid decline of GFR, reaching the uremic status within a few months or years, and the daily insulin requirement was reduced despite the very high carbohydrate intake.
Evaluation of long-term aggressive dietary management of chronic renal failure in children
TLDR
It is concluded that long-term strict dietary management of children with CRF is feasible and an overall improvement in general health and an apparent reduction in the rate of deterioration of renal function is suggested.
Can renal replacement be deferred by a supplemented very low protein diet?

  • 1999
TLDR
Patients with chronic renal failure who met these criteria on presentation or who reached these levels of severity during treatment were managed conservatively until RRT was judged necessary by their chosen dialysis or transplantation team, and it was concluded that further study of this approach is indicated.
Does prolonged protein restriction preceding dialysis lead to protein malnutrition at the onset of dialysis?

TLDR
In five patients who exhibited subnormal albumin and transferrin and high cholesterol concentrations at the beginning of dietary therapy, albuminand transferrin levels rose to normal or nearly normal, and hypercholesterolemia receded during the ensuing four months; this predialysis dietary regimen prevents protein malnutrition; when protein malnutrition is present, this regimen corrects it.
Adaptive responses to very low protein diets: the first comparison of ketoacids to essential amino acids.
Eight patients with chronic renal failure (GFR 18.8 +/- 2.7 ml/min) were randomized to a crossover comparison of a very low protein diet (VLPD) containing 0.28 g protein and 35 kcal per kg per day,

The effect of a keto acid-amino acid supplement to a restricted diet on the progression of chronic renal failure.
TLDR
This regimen with a low-phosphorus diet containing 20 to 30 g of mixed-quality protein, supplemented by amino acids and their keto analogues must have slowed or halted the progression of renal insufficiency in a majority of cases, especially when treatment was initiated before creatinine had reached the level of 8 mg per deciliter.
Restricted phosphorus and nitrogen intake to slow the progression of chronic renal failure: a controlled trial.
TLDR
The mechanisms by which the low-phosphorus, low-nitrogen diet slows the progression of renal failure are discussed, and the practical importance of prescribing the dietetic restriction early in the course of renal disease is stressed.
The risks and benefits of a low protein-essential amino acid-keto acid diet.
TLDR
A very low protein diet supplemented by an essential amino acid-keto acid mixture may slow the decline in renal function in a proportion of patients, but muscle mass can be lost and a fall in plasma creatinine may not be due to improved GFR but instead to altered Creatinine metabolism.
Clinical results of long-term treatment with a low protein diet and a new amino acid preparation in patients with chronic uremia.
TLDR
The results show that nitrogen equilibrium can be maintained during long-term treatment with this regimen and suggest that better nitrogen utilization is achieved with the new amino acid preparation than when essential amino acids are given to uremic patients in the proportions considered optimal for normal man.
Effects on renal function of a low-nitrogen diet supplemented with essential amino acids and ketoanalogues and of hemodialysis and free protein supply in patients with chronic renal failure.
TLDR
In the third group of uremics on repeated dialysis therapy, the deterioration of creatinine clearance was markedly accelerated and the possible explanations and the practical implications of these findings are discussed.
Creatinine metabolism in chronic renal failure.
TLDR
Creatinine metabolism was studied in nine patients with severe chronic renal failure who were nevertheless in a nearly steady state with respect to their creatinine pool, and two pathways of metabolism were identified: a recycling ofcreatinine to creatine and an irreversible degradation of creat inine to products other than creatine.
Comparison of the effects of keto acid analogues and essential amino acids on nitrogen homeostasis in uremic patients on moderately protein-restricted diets.
TLDR
It is concluded that any beneficial effects of keto acids in patients with chronic renal failure are only likely to occur in those taking a diet of less than 30 g protein daily.
Efficacy of an unselected protein diet (25 g) with minor oral supply of essential amino acids and keto analogues compared with a selective protein diet (40 g) in chronic renal failure.
TLDR
In patients with a creatinine clearance less than 10 ml/min, the keto analogue supplementation led to an improvement of the uremic intoxication and the nutritional state, and in patients with chronic renal insufficiency, the essential amino acid supplementations showed no advantages over the standard diet.
Evaluation of essential amino acids and keto acids in uremic patients on low-protein diet.
TLDR
Protein metabolism, as judged by serum transferrin, Clq, C3c, total complement activity, was improved and the concentrations of prealbumin and retinol-binding protein showed a further increase that might favor a vitamin A intoxication in chronic uremic patients.
Low-protein diet supplemented by keto acids in chronic renal failure: a prospective controlled study.
TLDR
A 30-g protein-restricted diet supplemented by keto acids resulted in a delayed rate of progression of chronic renal failure and a new pragmatic approach to the evaluation of long-term studies in patients with Chronic renal failure is demonstrated.
