Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a global health problem that is associated
with a high risk for cardiovascular morbidity and death. It is a clinical syndrome
characterized by the progressive and irreversible loss of renal function. Dietary
supplementation with grains containing high β-glucan fiber has been shown to
attenuate the progression of CKD and vascular calcification in animal models. In this
mini-review, the therapeutic effect of beta glucan on CKD was investigated. For this
reason, many studies were examined and promising results were obtained for the use of
beta glucan in the treating of CKD
