Default high carbon diet in patient with renal failure?

hi again..

For patients with renal failure,
why should be high carbon diet recommended?

They should get low protein diet in general, and this is
related with nephrotic syndrome? (loss of protein, being simply filtered..?)

Thanks in advance,

I read that question in uw and i also didn't know why high carb diet, would it be that you want the patients to get enough nutrients yet not loading them with high protein since we know protein catabolism worsens the ammonia levels??? really not sure about why high carb diet
