Will protein restriction slow the loss of kidney function? Can anything slow the loss of kidney function? Are turmeric and fish oil supplements safe.

A recent study suggest that eating less animal protein may help protect kidney function in patients who have been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD) https://www.kidney.org/news/plant-protein-reduces-mortality-chronic-kidney-disease-patients.  Treatment of high blood pressure and diabetes can slow the progression of CKD.  I am unaware of any harms from turmeric or fish oil in patients with CKD.
