A breakthrough nutritional program that can indefinitely postpone the need for dialysis

Kidney disease is a major, underrecognized, and undertreated problem in North America. Now, a top expert at Johns Hopkins explains how to recognize the problem early, evaluate current treatment, then take charge of care with his

12-step plan. Based on treatments he’ s pioneered with his own patients, Dr. Walser’ s unique program calls for a supplemented low-protein diet, supported by treatments to control blood pressure and correct high blood cholesterol– a breakthrough strategy that can delay the need for dialysis.

Mackenzie Walser, MD (Baltimore, MD), is Professor of Pharmacology and Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Betsy Thorpe (Stamford, CT) is the coauthor of Carol Guber’ s Type 2 Diabetes Life Plan.
