A Diet Chart for Peritoneal Dialysis Patients

A Diet Chart for Peritoneal Dialysis PatientsPeritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis are two common types of dialysis. Although their effects are similar, their working mechanism is quite different. Thereby, diet chart for patients on peritoneal dialysis is different from that for hemodialysis patients. Today, learn to how to arrange a diet plan for patients on peritoneal dialysis.

1. Elevate protein intake relatively

Peritoneal dialysis purifies the blood through peritoneal membrane, but protein will be lost during this process. Because of protein loss, these patients are suggested to add more protein into their diet chart for keeping their body strong.

2. Take in correct amount of potassium

Unlike hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis usually maintains patients' potassium level in the blood normal or even causes it to be lower than normal value. From this point, patients should choose some potassium-containing foods to keep normal potassium level in the blood.

3. Limit sodium intake

Although peritoneal dialysis can help impaired kidneys to filter blood, patients still need to control their fluid and sodium intake for preventing fluid retention and maintaining blood pressure. From this point, peritoneal dialysis patients should follow a low-sodium diet plan.

4. Follow a low-phosphorus diet plan

Phosphorus can't be cleared out thoroughly via peritoneal dialysis, while build up of phosphorus in the blood can induce skin itching, muscle disorders, and so on. Therefore, patients on peritoneal dialysis should stay away from high-phosphorus foods.

The above is only some basic dietary suggestions for patients on peritoneal dialysis. If patients want to get a diet chart suitable for themselves, patients are advised to tell us their latest medical report or illness description.
