ABSTRACT
Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are at high risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Both traditional risk factors, including dyslipidemia and nontraditional risk factors including inflammation may increase CVD risk. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of conventional low-protein diet and diet supplemented with Ketosteril® on lipid profile and C-reactive protein in patients with CKD. Results of the study showed that hyperlipidemia following CKD was improved by both diets. Our findings suggest that changes in animal protein intake could play an important role for CRP levels. In conclusion, the low-protein diets may exert a beneficial effect on the development of CVD in patients with CKD.
