Re: safe amt of protein intake

It depends on which stage of kidney disease you are in. If you are in stages 1, 2, or 3 of CKD, your protein intake may be limited to 12-15% of your calorie intake each day or something equal to about 0.8 g/kg/day. Take your weight, divide it by 2.2 and multiply that by 0.8 for the exact figure. If you're in stage 4 or 5, you should be under the guidance of a dietitian cause they recommend an even lower protein intake.

Have you talked to your doctor about it? When you're trying to balance a low protein CKD diet with diabetes, it can get a little complicated.
