damage of normal nephrons. At the same time, it is benefit to reduce the blood
phosphorus and relieve the acidosis. However, low-protein diet should be made
according to the personal condition. Also, patients should pay attention to the
nutrition index detection, such as the quantities of serum albumin and total
protein, thus to avoid malnutrition.
