Top 7 Foods Should Be Avoided By Kidney Failure Patients

2015-07-01 10:06

Top 7 Foods Should Be Avoided By Kidney Failure PatientsScientific diet helps slow down or relieve existing kidney failure. Unfortunately, many foods can harm your kidneys and keep them from functioning at optimal levels. Thus, kidney failure patients should avoid these foods. Here are top seven foods which should be avoided by kidney failure patients.

1. Meat

Diets high in animal protein can cause kidney damage. A high-protein diet can cause or exacerbate existing kidney problems because protein metabolism places a heavy load on the kidneys, making it difficult to eliminate wastes products. Instead, eat a variety of veggies, grains, seeds and nuts and you will get all of the protein your body needs.

2. Salt

Your body needs a little bit of sodium to maintain proper fluid balance, but you can get enough from eating fruits and vegetables. Many processed foods add a great deal of salt in order to enhance flavor. When you consume too much salt, your kidneys respond by retaining water in order to dilute this electrolyte in your bloodstream to maintain proper heart function, which places a burden on the kidneys. Besides, salt intake raises blood pressure, which can cause damage on the kidney nephrons which filter wastes.

3. Genetically modified foods

Most processed foods contain genetically modified ingredients including corn, soy, rice, sugar cane, sugar beets, canol. These foods will create a state of hepatorenal (liver and kidney ) toxicity.

4. Artificial sweeteners

Researchers looked at the role of artificial sweeteners on kidney function and found that there was an increase in kidney function decline with intake of just two diet sodas per day. Thus, skip the artificial sweeteners and stick with stevia if you need a little sweet.

5. Carbonated beverages

Kidney disease patients should avoid carbonated beverages such as soda and energy drinks because these beverages are associated with the formation of kidney stones. Drinking two or more colas per days are also associated with an increase risk of chronic kidney disease.

6. Dairy products

Reducing dairy can help people with kidney failure and kidney disease because it can make the filtering work of the kidney easier, delaying the need for dialysis.

7. Caffeine

Caffeine in coffee, tea, soda and foods can also place a strain on your kidneys. Because caffeine is a stimulant, it can stimulate blood flow, increasing blood pressure and stress on the kidneys.

The above top seven foods should be avoided by kidney failure patients. Even healthy people should not eat them too much to avoid damaging kidneys. If you have any question, please leave a message below or send email to kidneycares@hotmail.com. We will reply you as soon as possible.
