Revising Dietary Phosphorus Advice in Chronic Kidney Disease G3-5D

We summarize how practicing dietitians combined available evidence with clinical experience, to define revised dietary recommendations for phosphorus in chronic kidney disease G3-5D. As well as a review of the evidence base, 4 priority topics were reviewed. These were translated into 3 nutrient level recommendations: the introduction of some plant protein where phosphorus is largely bound by phytate; consideration of protein intake in terms of phosphorus load and the phosphorus to protein ratio; and an increased focus on avoiding phosphate additives.
