    During the five stages of kidney disease, IGR Plus the dietary needs will change. During the earliest stages, the changes may be only minor. In the secondary stages, the protein and other nutrients will be reduced to keep the disease from progressing. In the final stage, also known as end stage renal disease, the need for protein is increased, even higher than what is considered to be a normal amount. The right amount of protein must be determined for each patient - too much or too little can be dangerous. For instance, some of the diets that have been popular in the past, including the high-protein diets, can be dangerous to the kidneys and can cause other problems to the health as well. Some protein sources, especially those suggested by these diets, can be high in fat and calories, making them even more problematic as well. Even when protein is recommended, it should be from healthy sources, including plants and healthy protein supplements instead of the higher fat animal proteins.
