The number of chronic kidney disease patients (CKD) is increasing worldwide. The low protein diet was a traditional treatment to decrease proteinuria [1], and it was the only method until the 1960s’ when hemodialysis was implemented. Since the 1980s, development of anti-hypertensive, anti-diabetic, diuretic drugs and recent SGL-2 inhibitors ignores the usefulness of low protein diet therapy.
