How Do CKD Patients Eat to Feel BetterChronic Kidney Disease (CKD) means the kidneys are mild to severely damaged. Keeping a kidney-friendly diet is helpful slowing down the progression of kidney disease. How do CKD patients eat to fee better?

There is no universal way for all kidney disease patients. Here are some suggestions for general population. Any questions, please email to us at or leave a message below.

● Reduce sodium. Low sodium in diet helps CKD patients control high blood pressure. It also keeps people from being thirsty so as to reduce the kidney’s burden of holding onto more excess fluid. Take your salt shaker away and avoid salty foods such as processed meat, fast food and canned soups.

● Fluid. If the kidneys cannot remove excess fluid, swelling may occur. In that case, CKD patients need to limit fluid intake. Do not eat too much of foods that contain a lot of water such as soups, Jell-O, popsicles, ice cream, grapes, melons, lettuce, tomatoes, and celery. Avoid salty foods.

● Protein. The recommended protein amount for Chronic Kidney Disease patients is 0.6-0.8 g per kg of body weight. High-quality protein foods like egg white, fish and lean meat are good choices. As for those who are on dialysis, protein intake should increases. People on dialysis should eat 8-10 ounces of high-protein foods each day. Your doctor, dietitian, or nurse may suggest adding egg whites, egg white powder, or protein powder.

● Potassium and phosphorous. Whether you should reduce these minerals intake depends on patient’s blood test result. You can send your test report to us and our doctor on duty can give you specialized suggestions.

● Fats

Fats can be a good source of calories. Make sure to use monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (olive oil, canola oil, safflower oil) to protect your heart health.

As for you own illness conditions, you can get some guidance related to diet, exercise, medicines or some natural remedies. The online consultation service is free. Please remember to leave your email address, or phone number so that we can contact you and help you!
Please leave the patient's FULL name in case of a duplicate, and to make our doctor give timely response and help.
