At our Peking Tung Shin Tang Chinese Medical Hospital, nephrologists concluded the following useful advices:
A well-balanced diet

Normally, the dietary principle can be low-salt, low-fat, moderate intake of high-quality protein, low-potassium, low-phosphorus, high-fiber and so on. However, as the condition varies from individuals to individuals, the above-mentioned dietary principle is not a one-fit-all plan. For more information, please feel free to chat with our live doctor.
