If people do not care what they eat or drink, there will be more useless substances accumulate, burdening the kidneys. Can kidney disease patients take peanut butter during dialysis?

Diet restrictions in dialysis patients

The dialysis diet will restrict foods that contain high amounts of sodium, phosphorus and potassium.

- Foods rich in sodium: Pickles, bacons, sausages, bread, and processed foods,etc.

- Foods rich in phosphorus: Cheese, fish, shellfish, nuts, pork, beef, and beans, etc.

Peanut butter is rich of phosphorous and potassium. Here is a list of some contents in 100g of peanut butter:

Protein: 6.9g

Fat: 53g

Carbohydrate: 25.3g

Vitamin B: 2.09mg

Calcium: 67mg

Phosphorous: 90mg

Potassium: 99mg

Now you can see that both potassium and phosphorous are contained in peanut butter with a large amount, which is bad for dialysis patients. People in dialysis are required to take a limited intake of potassium and phosphorous, because their kidneys have trouble in filtering excessive potassium and phosphorous.

The high phosphorus level will induce many complications, such as bone disease, heart problem, lung disease etc.

To control the phosphorus in normal range, means a lot for patients to keep an overall health. And the target phosphorus level should be 3.5~5.5mg/dL.

To sum up, peanut butter is not a good choice of dialysis patients. If you are on dialysis and want to get a diet that is based on your own condition, you can contact us.
