Recommended Diet for CKD Patients with Protein in UrineNow more and more CKD patients realize that diet plays an important role in slowing down the progression. According to the remaining kidney function and symptoms, different CKD patients are recommended to follow different diet. What is the diet for CKD patients with protein in urine?

Low protein diet

Though protein leaks out of your body, it does not mean you should eat a lot of protein to replenish the lost protein. Because the protein intake can make your kidneys work hard to remove the metabolic waste of protein from the blood, which may further damage your kidneys. Generally speaking, CKD patients are often required to follow a low protein diet. How much protein you can eat depends on your kidney function. If you are in stage 3, 0.6 g/kg protein is OK. If you are in stage 4, you may be advised to reduce protein to 0.4 g/kg protein. In the end stage, you should control protein intake to 0.2 g/kg per day. If you are on dialysis, you should increase protein intake to 1.2 g/kg per day.

High carbohydrate food

In order to limit the protein metabolism, you should increase the intake of carbohydrate to supply calory for you. Rice, wheat, cereal and so on are all good source of carbohydrate. How much calory you can take depends on your activity intensity. If you do not have any activity, 126 kj-147 kj calory can satisfy the need of your body.

High vitamin food

Vitamins are an important substance to keep you healthy. Vitamins can boost your immune system and help the absorption of other trace elements like iron and calcium. Besides, they can help you lower the risk of cardiovascular disease. Fresh vegetables and fruits such as cranberries, kiwi fruit, oranges and tomatoes are packed with rich vitamins.

Apart from the above diet, you should pay attention to the intake of sodium, calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, etc. Whether you can eat them or not depends on your blood test. When your kidney function recovers, you can enjoy whatever you eat. If you would like a personalized treatment plan, please contact online doctor.
