2. Foods low in sodium

With the shrinkage of kidneys, extra fluid and sodium will build up in the body. If left uncontrolled, sodium retention will trigger or worsen high blood pressure or swelling. From this point, patients should control their sodium intake, so they had better eat some low-sodium foods such as onion, apple, cherry, cabbage, cranberry, and so on.

3. Foods rich in unsaturated fatty acid

Unsaturated fatty acid is one nutrition that can help inhibit inflammatory reactions within kidneys and protect the remaining kidney functioning tissues. Fish oil, walnut, flaxseed oil, and some other foods which are sources of this nutrition can do something to manage kidney shrinkage.

4. Foods low in potassium and phosphorus

In addition to congenital renal dysplasia, end stage renal disease (ESRD) is the leading cause of kidney shrinkage. In this condition, diseased kidneys are unable to eliminate extra potassium and phosphorus normally. Therefore, patients should eat foods low in these two minerals.
