PMID:  17369713     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Although protein restriction has been suggested as a mainstay of therapy for patients with diabetic nephropathy, controversy exists regarding the exact dietary prescription and stage of disease for implementation. This chapter reviews the pathophysiology and stages of diabetic nephropathy, clinical studies of dietary therapy in diabetic nephropathy, and provides a framework for using diet in the treatment of diabetic renal disease.
