Acid–base status and progression of chronic kidney disease
Current Opinion in Nephrology and Hypertension, 08/10/2012
Goraya N et al. – Recently published studies in humans suggest that acid–base–related mechanisms mediate nephropathy progression. These studies support that dietary acid reduction with Na+–based alkali or alkali–inducing food is an effective kidney–protective adjunct to current strategies and support re–examination of current recommendations for chronic kidney disease management.
