Low-protein diets may slow the progression of mild and moderate renal insufficiency. Therapeutic diets using plant sources of protein are more effective in delaying the progression of renal insufficiency, compared to those using animal proteins.5

All patients were followed for at least six months. There was no sign of protein insufficiency and inorganic phosphorus levels remained normal.6
