protein restriction

protein restriction

Clinical nutrition
The reduction of protein consumed in the diet from its normal level (roughly 1.3 g/kg/day), a manoeuvre used in renal failure. Extreme protein restriction (very low-protein diet, 0.28 g/kg/day) does not significantly slow the progression of renal disease more than moderate protein restriction (low-protein diet, e.g., 0.58 g/kg/day).

protein restriction

Clinical nutrition A restriction of dietary protein from a 'normal' level–±1.3 g/kg/day, indicated in renal failure; extreme PR–very low protein diet, 0.28 g/kg/day does not significantly slow the progression of renal disease > moderate PR–low protein diet–eg, 0.58 g/kg/day. Cf Caloric restriction.
