Conservative management of chronic renal failure has included a variety of dietary manipulations. Supplementation of dietary fiber to reduce adverse symptoms is a novel approach, but whether it can make an effective clinical impact is yet undetermined. This commentary accompanies a brief report of improved well-being during fiber supplementation. It explains some of the background thinking and early trials of fiber supplementation in chronic renal failure patients.
