2013-11-07 17:05

Diet is important for CKD patient’s health condition, and what diet is suitable for patient with stage 3 kidney disease?

Appropriate amount of protein intake:

Protein intake is important for patient with kidney disease. Protein is an important nutrient, so the necessary amount should be guaranteed. But protein can produce lots of metabolic wastes, which should be excreted out by kidney, so excess protein intake will aggravate patient’s kidney burden. Thereby, patient should take appropriate protein intake, while 0.8g/kg per day is recommended. Besides, it is important for patient to take high-quality protein at this protein.

Low amount of sodium intake

As we know, hypertension and sodium are com-mon complications of patient with kidney disease, while a major reason of these complications is much sodium intake. So take low amount of sodium is good for patient’s health.

Restriction in fluid intake

Patient with stage 3 CKD may not need to have fluid restriction, and it is better for patient to take much water if they do not have obvious edema. But if patient has obvious edema, he will need to restrict his fluid intake, which is important for his health condition.

Potassium intake

Patients with kidney disease often have electrolyte disorder, and potassium disorder is a common symptom. Patient with stage 3 CKD may need to supply or restrict his potassium intake according to his condition. In fact, patient often has high potassium level in blood, so patient is more likely to need restriction in his potassium intake.

Phosphorus and calcium intake

Patient with stage 3 CKD also often have phosphorus and calcium disorders, and patient may need to regulate the intake of phosphorus and calcium according to his condition. The total level of phosphorus and calcium is stable, while patients with stage 3 kidney may often have high phosphorus and low calcium in blood. Thereby, patient may need to take less phosphorus and more calcium in their diet.

High calory intake

High calory is also important for patient with stage 3 CKD, which can help reduce the decomposition of protein in patient’s body.

These are the basic aspects that stage 3 CKD patient should pay attention to in diet, while different patients have their own condition, so it is necessary for patient to regulate his diet according to his own condition. If you need any help, you can contact us, and we are willing to help you.
