(HealthDay News) -- Chronic kidney disease often requires making changes to your diet, the U.S. National Library of Medicine says.

The agency mentions these examples, which you should first discuss with your doctor:

  • Restricting fluids.
  • Limiting proteins.
  • Restricting potassium, phosphorous, salt and other electrolytes.
  • If you are losing weight, increasing caloric intake.
