Diet for kidney failure patients

Diet For Kidney Failure

When kidneys are not working at optimum, wastes build up in blood instead of being removed by the kidneys. That is why a special diet is important to follow. Some foods may need to be changed in diet for a CKD patient.

Protein:

Urea is a waste product that comes from the breakdown of protein. Urea is removed from the blood by kidneys and leaves your body in your urine. Too much protein in diet makes the kidneys work harder and can cause more kidney damage.

Calories:

It is very important to eat the right amount of calories. Calories come from carbohydrates, proteins, fats and alcohol.

Carbohydrates:

Carbohydrates are found in breads, cereals, rice, potatoes, fruits and vegetables, sugar, honey, cookies, cakes, sweets and drinks. Again, follow the diet guidelines suggested by your dietician and doctor.

Sodium:

Sodium is a mineral found naturally in almost all foods. The most common form of sodium is table salt. Excess sodium can cause high blood pressure and swelling.

Potassium:

Potassium is a mineral also found in many foods. As the CKS gets worse, too much potassium can cause serious damage. Here is the list of foods that are rich in potassium. Bananas, Potatoes, Tomatoes, Beans, Chocolate, Nuts, Peaches, Oranges, Milk, Raisins etc.

Fats:

Fats include foods like meat, butter and oils. Fats contain twice the calories as carbohydrates or proteins. Polyunsaturated fats are better than saturated fats. High cholesterol can cause kidney damage and heart disease.

Fluids:

In the beginning there may not be a fluid limit for CKD patients. This is because the kidneys may still be able to make urine, although the urine may not have all the wastes that are in normal urine. The amount of urine may eventually decreases and then there may be need to restrict the fluid intake.
