About this study
The purpose of this study is to conduct a controlled, unblinded RCT comparing mild CR to a control diet in patients with rapidly progressive ADPKD (class 1C-E by the lrazabal classification), under conditions of standardized hydration and sodium intake, to determine whether it slows the rate of growth of the kidneys (primary endpoint), is well tolerated and safe, lowers levels of IGF-1 in serum and the excretion of inflammation (MCP-1) and fibrosis (TGF-) biomarkers in urine, improves kidney texture, slows the decline of GFR and the rate of growth of the liver, and improves the quality of life.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate.
