The updated 2020 Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative (KDOQI) guidelines resulted in an increased interest in the use of a low-protein diet in patients with chronic kidney disease. In Poland, from March 2021, patients can be enrolled, provided that they meet certain criteria, into the therapeutic program including the use of a low-protein diet and ketonanalogues of aminoacids. However, it is very important to properly educate medical personnel and patients so that the KDOQI recommendations are implemented in clinical practice and bring benefits by slowing the progression of the chronic kidney disease.
