pronounced Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Failure or Stage 3 CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) is characterized by moderated impaired kidney function. At this stage, your kidneys cannot work as normal and many symptoms occur. Maintaining a kidney-friendly diet is very necessary to relieve symptoms.

Salty foods

Too much sodium in the blood may cause fluid retention, resulting in swelling or edema. When too much fluid builds up in the lungs, it can cause shortness of breath.

Foods high in protein

After protein breaks down, it can produce some wastes like urea. Too much urea accumulation may lead to gout. However, you cannot limit protein totally, since it is one necessary nutrition. Therefore, you can take some high-quality protein foods like egg white, lean meat and milk.

Rich potassium and phosphorous foods

Since damaged kidneys cannot remove excess potassium and phosphorous, patients may experience some discomforts such as itchy skin, abnormal heart rate, muscle soreness, nausea and vomiting. Many fresh vegetables like spinach, artichoke, potatoes and tomatoes is rich in potassium. Nuts, seeds and some dairy products are high in phosphorous.
