Soy protein as a part of a low-protein diet is a new direction in cardio- and nephroprotection in patients with 3b-4 stages of chronic kidney disease.

It has been established that the use of a low-protein diet (LPD) in combination with ketoanalogues of essential amino acids (KA) can contribute to cardio and nephroprotection in chronic kidney disease (CKD). Moreover, it has been shown that partial replacement of the animal protein with soy protein (SP) in the diet contributed to more pronounced nephro and cardioprotection in CKD, however, the data, available in the literature, are mainly represented by experimental studies.
