After kidney transplant, there is something for kidney transplant kidneys to pay attention to. Diet is one aspect. What are dietary precautions after kidney transplant?

1. Diet after one month of surgery

At this time, patients with kidney transplant need intake enough protein and calories to keep balance of nitrogen and promote the wound healing. This can also reduce the risk of infection. After the recovery of peristalsis, they can eat some liquid foods like rice soup, lotus root starch and egg flower soup. But do not drink milk too earlier to avoid stomach bloating. Then they can eat some semi-liquid food like noodles, steamed egg custard and black fish soup. Gradually, kidney transplant patients can have a diet like common people.

In the early stage of surgery, patients should limit salt intake. Generally, salt intake per day is 3-4 gram. After half of a year, salt intake at least is 6 gram.
