Cheese is made by curdling milk and draining the whey, while it still retains enough moisture to make it soft and spreadable. It is valued for its portability, long life and high content of fat, protein, calcium and phosphorus, potassium, etc. For people with stage 3 kidney disease, duet to kidney damage, about half of kidney function has lost so their kidney fails to function properly. Consequently, some symptoms like high blood pressure, proteinuria, swelling occurs easily. If left uncontrolled, all of them can speed up the kidney damage. In severe condition, the illness condition can develop into Kidney Failure or ESRD.
