Thanks for your query.

Considering the physical condition of the patient and his laboratory parameters mentioned by you ,I would recommend him high protein and low fat diet.

If you can provide me with some more clinical data like his BUN and serum /urine creatinine values along with his present routine diet and schedule details, Me with our nutritionist will arrive at a suitable diet plan with recommended nutrients in terms of quality and quantity at the earliest.
