Can Dialysis Patients Eat Cashew

Can Dialysis Patients Eat CashewCashew is one delicious nut loved by many people. If kidney failure patients have begun dialysis, they are still required to follow a healthy diet plan. Can these patients eat cashew?

Dialysis is one blood purifier that can help save kidney failure patients' life, but it is not as effective as healthy kidneys. If patients are taking hemodialysis, they still need to limit their intake of sodium, phosphorus, potassium and protein.

Because cashew belongs to nuts that contain high levels of both potassium and phosphorus, dialysis patients should limit their intake of cashew tightly. The amount of cashews to eat should depend on patients' potassium and phosphorus levels in the blood.

To learn how many cashews to consume safely, patients are recommended to tell the Doctor online about their potassium level and phosphorus level. Then, doctor from Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital can give them the correct answer in 24 hours.

If dialysis patients want to follow a scientific diet plan, they should also pay attention to the following aspects.

- Limit the intake of dairy products: As the above mentioned, dialysis patients should control their intake of potassium and phosphorus. According to DaVita, high potassium level in the blood can cause muscle and heart problems, while high phosphorus level in the blood is more likely to lead to weak bones. Dairy products are just high in both of these two minerals.

- Stay away from salty foods: Salty foods can cause extra sodium intake, so dialysis patients should avoid canned foods, processed foods, bacon, pickles, and so on.

- Control the intake of whole grain foods: These foods are usually rich in phosphorus, so they should also pay attention to their intake of whole grain foods such as brown rice, bran cereal and whole wheat bread.
