What Should CKD Patients Care In Their Sodium Intake

What Should CKD Patients Care In Their Sodium IntakeThere are many aspects CKD patients should pay attention to in their diet, among which the restriction on their sodium intake is very common. Sodium has an important influence on CKD patients’ health, so what should they care in their sodium intake?

Sodium is necessary to CKD patients

CKD patients may often hear they should have low sodium intake, but in fact, patients should also guarantee appropriate amount of sodium in their diet. Because sodium is a necessary mineral in our body, and the shortage of sodium may cause patients to have inappetence, weakness in their limbs, dizziness, etc.

Restrictions on sodium intake

Patients with CKD often have edema and hypertension. These complications are caused by patients’ kidney damage, and they can also aggravate patients’ kidney damage and cause many other complications. A major cause of these two complications is the retention of sodium and water, so the restrictions on sodium intake is needed to patients with CKD.

What should patients do to restrict their sodium intake?

CKD patients can restrict their salt intake so as to reduce their sodium intake. The recommended salt intake for healthy people is 6~8g per day, which is also suitable to CKD patients. In fact, we can get about 3g from our foods, so the right salt intake is about 3~5g. As we know, salt is a necessary condiment in our life. If patients have inappetence when they have low salt, they can use soy to replace salt in their diet, and 1g salt is equal to 5mg soy. While to patients with severe edema, to reduce their symptom, they may need to have no salt diet.

CKD patients should care their salt intake, and they should also care many aspects in their diet. So patients with CKD had better consult their doctors’ advices on what they eat and how to eat.
