Should Patients With Kidney Disease Eat Sea Foods

Should Patients With Kidney Disease Eat Sea FoodsWhat we eat can affect our body condition obviously, but for patient with kidney disease, they will have many restrictions in their diet, because inappropriate diet can damage their kidney function and overall health easily.

Many patients are fond of eating sea foods, while, is it still OK for them to take sea foods when they have kidney disease?

In fact, there are many aspects should be considered by patients with kidney disease when they are going to eat sea foods.

Their protein intake:

Patient with kidney disease should have low protein take in their diet, because protein can produce lots of metabolic wastes which should be filtrated out by kidney. So, much excess protein intake will increase patient’s kidney burden and often aggravate patient’s kidney damage.

But protein is an important nutrient for our body, so it is important for patients to guarantee they can have high-quality protein, because there are eight kinds of amino acid can not be compounded by our body.

And the protein in most sea foods is high-quality, and that seems to be a good news. But the recommended protein intake for patients with kidney disease is about 0.8g/kg, so if a patient is 70kg, he should take about 56 gram protein per day. And that does not include the protein that can be gotten form other foods in his diet, so it is hard for patients to control the intake of sea foods.

Allergic reaction:

Many people are allergic to sea foods, and patient with kidney disease should also be careful in this aspect, because some kidney diseases will be aggravated when there is allergic reaction in their body, like purpura nephritis, lupus nephritis, etc.

Uric acid:

Sea foods usually contain lots of purine, which is a major source of uric acid. While patients with kidney disease often have high uric acid due to their low kidney function, and that can cause gout.

Thereby, for patients with kidney disease, it does not matter if they just take a little amount of sea foods, but they should also consider whether it is suitable for them to take sea foods according to their habitus and condition.
