It may help to cut down on protein and salt.
Also, if you take one day a week and during this day only eat either: fruit, rice, potatoes, rice...(no salt added)..you will lose about five pounds in water overnight and it's a good way to detox.

You may also try to find a kidney forum, as this forum you have asked your question on is about how to improve Medhelp.

best, Katrin

"There are things you can do to try and delay the progression
of kidney disease. Keeping your blood pressure under control
is key; especially by using an ACE-inhibitor type of blood pressure
medicine with “pril” as the suffix. Know your lab test results
and try to keep your hemoglobin A1C under 7.0%, your
blood pressure under 130/80, your bad cholesterol less than
100, and eat no more than 0.08 gms/kg body weight of any
type of protein per day. A proper diet is another way to slow
the progression of diabetes and kidney disease. The website
www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search can help you find out
what the foods you are eating have in them.
