Initiating a low protein diet supplemented with Ketorena: The team approach
Ketorena is a medical food and should be used under the care of a qualified Health Care Practitioner. Working with both your kidney Doctor as well as a Renal Dietitian may be the best way to achieve success initiating and maintaining a low protein diet to slow the progression of CKD.
Renal Dietitians are professionally trained dietitians who specialize in the nutritional needs of people with kidney disease.
Your Kidney Doctor will monitor your lab values and overall progress while collaborating with your Renal Dietitian to make any needed alterations in diet, meal planning or Ketorena dose.
