Can a Diet Improve Kidney Function for Stage 4 CKD

2015-03-27 02:02 Can a Diet Improve Kidney Function for Stage 4 CKD

Patients with CKD Stage 4 have severely damaged renal function. Kidneys fail to remove waste and extra fluid adequately. Taking a good diet can reduce the stress on kidneys. But can a diet improve kidney function for Stage 4 CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) patients?

What is a recommended diet for CKD Stage 4 patients?

● Low sodium diet. This is to prevent swelling and high blood pressure. Processed meat, canned soups and fast foods should be avoided.

● Low protein diet. Consuming too much protein will burden the kidneys because many waste products builds up in the body after protein metabolism. Half of the protein sources should be high-quality protein foods like egg white, fish, lean meat and milk.

● Low phosphorous intake. High phosphorus levels in the blood will cause itchy skin and bone problems. You are suggested to avoid cheese, seeds and nuts, etc.

● Low potassium foods. Some fresh vegetables and fruits contain rich potassium. Bananas, kiwi fruit, lemon, avocados, spinach and artichoke, etc should be avoided. This is to prevent muscle cramps and shortness of breath.

Diet effects on CKD Stage 4

A healthy diet is helpful for CKD Stage 4 patients. It can reduce stress on kidneys, thus protecting the remaining kidney function. Yet, it cannot improve the kidney function, because no certain food can repair the damaged renal tissues. Then, what is effective treatment that can improve renal function?

Treatment for CKD Stage 4

To achieve that goal, I recommend you to take Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The key effect of these herbs is to improve blood circulation, so that the kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair themselves effectively.
