2015-02-02 08:20

Things to Avoid for Stage 3 CKDThe kidney is one of the important organ to remove the wastes produced by what you take. CKD Stage 3 means the kidneys have been moderately damaged over years. Avoiding things that may have potential damage on Stage 3 CKD patients. Here is a general guidance. For more detailed suggestion, you can email to or consult our doctors online directly.

Dietary restriction

● Salty foods

High sodium in the blood cannot be filtered by kidneys, and can cause or aggravate water-retention and high blood pressure. Therefore, CKD Stage 3 patients should avoid salty foods such as processed meat, canned vegetable and fast food. Some flavor seasoning such as soy source and ketchup should be also avoided.

● Low-quality protein

After protein metabolism, large amounts of wastes are produced. People with kidney damage are suggested to avoid low-quality protein foods such as red meats and poultry. Half of protein resources should be high-quality protein foods like milk, egg white and lean meat.

● Fruits and vegetables high in potassium

Limiting potassium intake is sometime necessary in CKD Stage 3 patients. In that case, some fruits or vegetables are required to be taken with limited amount. For example:

-Vegetable: Spinach, artichoke, mushrooms, tomatoes, potatoes, kale, brussels sprouts, zucchini with skin and green beans.

-Fruits: Bananas, dried apricots, prunes, dates, avocados, kiwi fruit and peaches.

● Foods rich in phosphorous

Phosphorus blocks the absorption of calcium, so reducing the following high-phosphorus foods will help retain needed calcium. Cut back on cocoa, nuts, chocolate, carbonated drinks and some dairy products. Eat only one portion of these foods per day, especially cottage cheese, yogurt, milk, soy cheese, soy yogurt and hard cheeses, which are high in phosphorus.

Last words

Diet restriction is necessary but is not the treatment for CKD Stage 3 patients. To manage this condition, you need to take methods to controlling symptoms and protect remaining renal function.
