Christmas is coming! Do not increase your kidney burden in Christmas! Many patients want to have a happy Christmas holiday, but do not forget pay attention to your diet, if you eat any delicious food you want, it would increase the kidney burden and lead to kidney failure easily. So what should kidney disease patients pay attention to during the holiday? Let us give you some tips about your Christmas holiday.
Do not eat too full
In Christmas holiday, there are many parties we need join. For those kidney disease patients, their kidneys cannot remove the waste and toxin effectively, if they eat too full, more and more waste cannot be removed which also would increase the kidney burden and damage their kidneys further.
Do not eat too salty
Salty food would lead to high blood pressure easily and it is a systemic disease which would influence the renal. Limit the intake of salt would help patients reduce the renal burden and relieve the symptom of swelling.
Do not eat too sweet and too greasy
The sweet and greasy food not only would cause obesity, but also could increase the renal burden. Especially for diabetic nephropathy patients, those would make their diabetes condition worse and damage their kidneys again.
Do not eat too much protein
It would lead to hyperuricemia which also would damage kidneys if patients intake much protein. It is easy to cause renal tubular and interstitial lesions which would develop to kidney failure.
Many people like drinking in the party, but for kidney disease patients, much alcohol would increase protein decomposition and increase the kidney burden.
Do not stay up late
No matter how much you enjoy your party, but do not remember you cannot stay up late. An adequate sleep is very important to kidney disease patients.
