The above are all possible causes of kidney dysfunction. Once a person is diagnosed with kidney disease, he or she should follow a proper diet:

*Limit protein intake

Patients who have not undergone dialysis should restrict protein intake because kidneys cannot expel the wastes generated by protein metabolism. However, if dialysis is required, dialysis will cause protein loss. In this condition, patients should listen to their doctor’s suggestion and maintain their body need.

*Low sodium intake

If kidney dysfunction patients have too much sodium intake, it will lead to water-sodium retention. Then it may cause cardiorespiratory failure and worsen kidney failure. Never use of low-sodium salt because low-sodium salt contains rich potassium ion.

*Restrict potassium

Potassium accumulation in the body will lead to muscle weakness and even irregular heartbeat as well as heart failure.

*Control phosphorus intake

High phosphorus level in the body will lead to the loss of calcium. Therefore, doctor will use some medications to help control phosphorus level to prevent osteoporosis.

*Fluid intake

If excessive fluid in the body cannot be drained from the body, swelling or cardiopulmonary failure will occur.
