Can Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Patients Eat Hot DogsStage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is characterized by GFR (glomerular filtration rate) ranging from 30ml/min to 60ml/min. Under this condition, you need to make changes to your diet. The changes include:

- Limiting fluids

- Eating a low-protein diet

- Limiting salt, potassium, phosphorous, and other electrolytes

- Getting enough calories if you are losing weight

You may need to alter your diet more if your kidney disease gets worse, or if you need dialysis.

Can Stage 3 CKD patients eat hot dog?

Hot dogs are process meats which contain high phosphorous level. In Stage 3 CKD, the kidneys have been moderately damaged and cannot maintain the electrolyte balance so that phosphorous level becomes abnormal. Eating hot dogs will aggravate your illness condition.

There are other some foods and drinks that are rich in phosphorous, for example:

1. Dairy: Cheese, ice cream, milk, yogurt

2. Meats: Processed meats (bologna, sausage, turkey sausage), organ meats, sardines.

3. Breads/grains: Brown and wild rice, bran products, biscuits, whole gain products (breads, pancakes, pasta, pizza)

4. Vegetables: Dried beans and peas

5. Beverages: Beer, chocolate drinks, cola-type beverages

6. Miscellaneous: Chocolate, nuts, nut butters (peanut butter, almond butter), seeds.


Either phosphorous or potassium level is a crucial mineral that helps your body function at its best. But too much of a good thing can be harmful. Moderation is the key to physical and mental wellness. Being proactive and learning about kidney disease is the best way to maintain good health. Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease can be managed by working with your doctor and renal dietitian, by making alterations to your diet and by maintaining a kidney-friendly lifestyle.
