Animal protein is about 60% in the low-protein diet but rich in high-quality protein, such as beef, lean meat, red meat, fish, chicken, etc.
2. People should keep away from salty food. Generally the amount of salt intake daily should be less than 3g. Therefore, you’d better cook for yourself and add proper salt amount. In addition, patients avoid or limit some foods such as canned food, pickles, bacon and so on.
3. Patients should ingest more vitamins so as to strengthen immune system. Patients can eat some vegetables and fruits, such as pear, apple, cucumber, tomato, blueberry, carrot, celery, and so on.

5. Patients should drink correct amount of water. If the volume of urine is less than yesterday , you should control water and the volume you take in should less than urine yesterday. Of course, if you do not suffer from swelling or hypertension, there is no need to have strict water restriction.
