Diet Recommendation For Patients With GFR 23

2015-10-16 07:36

Diet Recommendation For Patients With GFR 23What are diet recommendations for patients with Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) 23? Renal diet should aim to improve kidney condition and slow the progression of kidney disease. Well what is a proper diet for patients with GFR 23?

Dietary intervention is necessary for patients with declined kidney function and includes careful regulation of your protein intake, fluid intake, sodium intake and some restriction of potassium. Meanwhile, adequate caloric intake and vitamin supplementation must be ensured.

Protein intake

The protein you take must be of high biologic value like dairy products, eggs and meat. High biologic value proteins means those that are complete proteins and supply the essential amino acids which is for growth and cell repair.

Fluid balance

The fluid allowance is around 500ml more than the previous day’s 24 hour urine output. In the early stage of kidney disease, you do not need to limit the fluid you drink. But as your condition gets worse, you need to watch your fluid intake. Do not eat too much of foods that contain a lot of water, such as soup, ice cream, grapes, melons, lettuce and celery.


Calories are supplied by carbohydrates and fat to prevent wasting. How many calories you need depends on your age, sex, body size and activity level.

Vitamin supplementation

Kidney disease patients need to supplement some vitamins because a protein limited diet does not provide the necessary complement of vitamins. Besides, patients on dialysis may lose water-soluble vitamins from the blood during the dialysis treatment.


Sodium limitation helps you control high blood pressure. It also keeps you from being thirsty and prevents your body from holding onto extra fluid. You need to cut down the sodium in your diet.

The above are some diet recommendations for patients with GFR 23. GFR 23 means kidneys have been damaged severely so diet is not enough. In addition to diet, medical treatment is also vital. Natural treatments like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath and Mai Kang Mixture can repair injured kidney tissues and improve renal function. When kidney function is improved, low GFR levels will also be increased. If you want to know detailed information, you can leave us a message below or consult our online doctor directly.
