Using Egg Whites to Keep Protein Up and Control Phosphorus http://www.davita.com/diet-and-nutrition/lifestyle/using-egg-whites-to-keep-protein-up-and-control-phosphorus/a/5348

It is important for people on dialysis to get an adequate amount of protein to keep their blood albumin level up. Albumin is a protein needed to maintain growth and repair tissues. Lynn, a DaVita® renal dietitian, conducted a study to see if substituting liquid egg whites for meat in one meal a day would help patients keep a healthy albumin level while keeping phosphorus in the normal range and reducing the number of phosphorus binders needed to take.
