Can I Go on Vegetarian Diet with Kidney DiseaseVegetarian diet has not only become acceptable, but also is now considered superior to animal-based diets for the prevention and treatment of kidney disease. However, does it mean that you can go on this vegetarian diet with kidney disease?

The answer depends on what type of vegetarian you are. It also depends on your stage of kidney disease and how restrictive you need to be with protein, phosphorus and potassium.

As we all know, people with kidney disease have a specific diet. In general, foods with high protein, sodium, potassium, and phosphorous are restricted. For vegans, what should they choose for renal diet? Here are some basic things that may help you.

Protein

In the early stage of kidney disease, high protein is limited, but high-quality protein is recommended. However, when you taking foods with high-quality protein foods, you may not avoid taking potassium and phosphorous. The chart below will give a guideline.
 

High -quality Protein Sources

Meat analogues Edamame

Phosphorus

Such vegetarian as milk, cheese, yogurt, dried cooked beans and nuts

are high in phosphorus. These foods should often be limited. In addition, some dark carbonated beverages and commercial iced tea are not recommended since phosphate additives may be absorbed by your body.

Potassium is generally limited by your doctor. However, if you get severe swelling or using diuretics, you need to increase potassium intake. I will also give you some examples.
