Diet of Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease

diet of patients with chronic kidney disease As we know, foods have a direct and important influence on patient’s condition, so patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) should pay much attention to their diet, and right diet can improve patients’ condition significantly. As a result, it is important for CKD patents to have a well understanding about what they should have in their diet.

The protein intake

Patient must pay attention to their protein intake. Protein can produce urea and other metabolic wastes, and these substances will be excreted by kidney. While patients with CKD have damaged kidneys, and excess protein will increase its burden, which may aggravate the damage. On the other hand, to guarantee body’s health, enough protein is needed. In addition, there are eight kinds of protein that can not be compounded by our bodies, so high-quality protein will be perfect for CKD patients.

The sodium intake

Patients with CKD often have complications like edema and hypertension. One major reason of edema is the retention of water and sodium, so low amount of sodium can improve this condition. Besides, much sodium in blood can elevate its pressure. Thereby, the intake of sodium should be restricted at a low level.

The calcium and phosphorus intake

Phosphorus and calcium compete for the absorption, and the levels of them are balanced by kidney. While CKD patents often have low level of phosphorus, which may cause some bone diseases. In this condition, patients should restrict the phosphorus intake and take more calcium.

The potassium intake

To patients with CKD, they are easy to have high level of potassium in their blood, which can cause cardiovascular diseases like arrhythmia or even cardiac arrest. Thereby, if necessary, patients may need to have low amount of potassium, so foods like banana, tomato, beans, and so on, should be forbidden.

The vitamin intake

Patients should have much amount of vitamins, because vitamins play an important role in regulating our body’s functions. In addition, they can also improve our immunity, which is for patients with CKD to protect their health.

CKD patients’ diet is very important for them to control their condition, so it is better for them to have a proper eating plan. As we know, every patient has his unique condition, so patient needs to follow their doctor’s advices in making plan.
