2015-10-05 08:47

What Foods Should Uremia Patients EatA reasonable diet plays an important role in the recovery of uremia. Unhealthy diet will worsen your illness condition. Well then, what should you eat to treat your uremia?

1. Low protein and phosphorus diet

As for patients in the early stage of kidney disease, protein intake should not be limited strictly. However, in uremia, kidneys cannot discharge metabolic products of protein completely so blood urea nitrogen will increase in your body, which will burden your kidneys. At this time, protein intake should be restricted strictly. That is, you should follow a low protein and phosphorus diet.

2. Limit sodium intake and eat light foods

In uremia, you had better eat easily-digestible foods and reduce the intake of foods with high cholesterol and high saturated fatty acid. This helps avoid burdening your intestinal tract and kidneys.

3. Do not eat foods with high potassium and high purine.

If you have decreased urine output, you should not eat foods with high potassium such as bananas, oranges and soy sauce. Because potassium is discharged via urine. Less urine output will discharge less potassium. If you eat more high potassium foods, you may suffer from hyperkalemia, which can threaten your life.

4. Adequate carbohydrate intake

Due to protein limitation, calories are mainly supplied by carbohydrate. Thus, sugar in diet should be increased moderately to meet the needs of the body to the calories. At the same time, adequate calories can reduce the consumption of protein and reduce kidney burden.

5. Supplement vitamin and minerals

Due to poor appetite and imbalanced nutrition, you should eat some foods with rich vitamin C, vitamin B and vitamin D such as fresh vegetables and fruits. As for anemia, you can eat some foods with rich iron like eggs, tomato, red dates and green leaf vegetables.

We hope the above information can help you. Aside from proper foods, you also need to take treatment to repair your impaired kidneys and improve kidney function. Only in this way can you live a relatively longer life.
