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

Lower Phosphorus Higher Phosphorus
Eggs Cheese
Cottage cheese Milk
Meat analogues Edamame
Seitan Butters
Seitan Soy milk
Tofu Yogurt
  Unsalted nuts

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

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.
 

Vegetables with high potassium Fruits with high potassium
Carrot Apricots

Potatoes Honey-dew melon
Greens (collard, beet, chard, etc.) Nectarines

Our Treatment effect

Proteinuria is a common symptom of kidney disease

Mouse over the picture, it can be magnified.

It can make your urine foamy. Although it does not make you feel uncomfortable, it can impair your renal function and make your kidney disease worse. Conventional treatment such as steroids and immunosuppressants can hardly make it negative. In our hospital, systemic Chinese medicine treatment can help you turn it negative. Look at this picture, bubbles in urine become less and less with our treatment going on.
