Does dialysis seem unavoidable?
For most people finding out that their GFR is now dipping below 30 is terrifying. When it dips below 15 that is even scarier because now the big "D" (dialysis) word comes up. Now is the time for action to preserve your kidney function. There is still time for you to dramatically change the trajectory of kidney decline WITHOUT being confused, starved, or feeling deprived.

What does the medical research say about Very Low Protein Diet + Ketoanalogues?
"In this pooled analysis of moderate-size controlled trials, a low protein diet appears to enhance the conservative management of non-dialysis-dependent CKD and may be considered as a potential option for CKD patients who wish to avoid or defer dialysis initiation and to slow down the progression of CKD..." -Rhee, et al, 2017 (Full article link)
"We examined the evidence from 17 studies (21 data sets) with 2996 people with reduced kidney function. We found that very low protein diets compared with low or normal protein intakes probably reduce the number of people with advanced kidney failure, who progress to dialysis." - Cochrane Review 2018 (Full article link)
