2018-10-07 07:42

Diet List for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) PatientsDuring Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) treatment, diet has a great effect on illness condition. In particular, kidneys are important detoxifying and metabolizing organs so diet you eat will directly affect renal function. Well then, what is the specific food for kidney patients?

1. Eat more dietary fiber like vegetables and fruits

Vegetables and fruits contain rich vitamins, fibrin, minerals and nutrient elements, which can give nutrients to kidney patients. Besides, vegetables and fruits contain much fluid which can speed up renal metabolism but not burden kidneys. As for renal patients, vegetable intake should be about 500g and fruit intake is about 200g.

It is reported that foods with dietary fiber like potatoes, oats, buckwheat and so on can improve immunity, reduce the risk of infection and lower proteinuria so as to delay the progression of kidney function.

2. Moderate intake of high quality protein

Protein is an essential nutrient for the human body. But if you eat too much protein, it will cause

overnutrition and cause kidney damage. Thus, in order to avoid too much protein leakage and prevent kidney function deterioration, renal patients need to limit protein intake. To get enough nutrients, you can take foods with high quality protein like fish, meat, egg, milk and soybean products, etc. Generally, it is advisable to take protein 1g/kg of body weight. If you have massive proteinuria and hypoalbuminemia, you should take protein 1.5g/kg of body weight. And dialysis patients should take protein 1.2-1.5g/kg of body weight.

3. Eat less salt: reduce kidney burden and provide space for kidney recovery

If you eat too much salt, it will deposit in kidneys and cause further kidney damage. Besides, it can also worsen swelling, hypertension and other kidney symptoms. Patients without obvious hypertension and swelling should limit salt intake below 6g while patients with swelling, elevated blood pressure and decreased urine output should eat 2-4g salt per day.

In addition, high salt foods like ham, bacon, salted fish, pickles, and French fries should also be limited.

4. Eat less sugar

After glomeruli and renal tubular are damaged, it will lead to abnormal blood flow in the kidney, which will affect systemic metabolic disorders and easily cause metabolic diseases such as high blood lipids, hypertension and high blood sugar. Thereby, renal patients also need to control sugar intake. Avoid foods that are high in sugar and calories, such as sweets, ice cream, drinks and sweets.

Do you eat right? Change your bad eating habit and it is good for your condition. Kidney failure can also be reduced.
