Thanksgiving Day Dietary Tips For Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease Patients

2015-11-25 03:39

Thanksgiving Day Dietary Tips For Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease PatientsTomorrow is Thanksgiving day. On that day, people usually end up eating more than they should. But for those with stage 3 chronic kidney disease (CKD), holiday eating extravaganzas may be putting their health and life at risk. Well, what are dietary tips for stage 3 CKD patients on Thanksgiving day?

1. Limit appetizers

As a renal patient, on Thanksgiving Day, limit appetizers such as cheese, crackers and potatoes skins which can easily be upwards of a thousand calories if you do not pay attention. Choose renal friendly vegetables such as red peppers, green beans and celery, which are high in fiber, but low in calories and potassium.

2. Low sodium proteins

Do not eat ham or other highly processed meats because they are high sodium culprits. Dine on lower sodium proteins such as prime rib or pork roast which are fresh cuts of meat and naturally contain less sodium. Fresh turkeys can be a good option if they are not injected with a salt broth or brine. Check with your local store to see if they have plain and fresh turkeys.

3. Modify dessert recipes

Modify dessert recipes to make them lower in sodium. For example, when you make fruit pies, it is easy to omit salt when following the recipe for crust and filling. Low sodium baking powder may not be a good alternative if you are on a potassium restriction.

4. Fluid restriction

On Thanksgiving day, you need to opt for seltzer and other water-based beverages to limit your fluid intake.

5. Eat a healthy snack

On any holiday or a party, as a kidney patient, you should eat a healthy snack before you go so that you are not attempted to consume foods and drinks that may not be healthy for you. Portion control is key, so enjoy holiday favorites in moderation and say “no thank you” to seconds.
