Diet for Stage 4 Kidney FailureDiet always plays an important role in each stage of Chronic Kidney Disease, and Stage 4 Kidney Failure is no exception. This article can help you to get some information about diet in Stage 4 Kidney Failure. Yet, this article is for reference only, and you should consult your doctor for specific suggestions based on your own condition. Our doctor online can also provide counseling for free of charge.

Get to know Stage 4 Kidney Failure

In clinic, Chronic Kidney Failure or Chronic Kidney Disease is divided into five stages, according to GFR (glomerular filtration rate). The lower GFR is, the more serious stage of CKD is. When GFR decreases to 15-29ml/min, it indicates the patients are in Stage 4 Kidney Failure. In this stage, due to deposition of large amounts of wastes and toxins, symptoms such as swelling, fatigue, poor appetite, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea will occur.

Therefore, keeping enough nutrition supply is essential for you to maintain immunity and lead a better life.

Protein in Stage 4 Kidney Failure

The Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiatives (K/DOQI) Nutrition Guidelines suggest that a high-quality protein intake of 0.6 grams per kg of body weight may be beneficial. Egg white, milk, poultry, seafood, lean meat or soy can be taken.

Phosphorous in Stage 4 Kidney Disease

As kidneys are damaged, they cannot maintain the balance of electrolyte. As result, phosphorous builds up in the blood. At the same time, calcium is not absorbed well from your food. This can affect the bones, heart and blood vessels. Based on your lab results for phosphorus, calcium and PTH, your stage 4 CKD diet may include a phosphorus restriction of 800-1,000 mg daily.

Potassium in Stage 4 Kidney Failure

If lab tests show potassium is too high, your doctor may prescribe a potassium restriction of 2,000-3,000 mg a day. Your meal plan may limit your daily servings of fruit and vegetables such as bananas, oranges, tomatoes, potatoes, pumpkin, carrot, and so on.

Sodium in Stage 4 Kidney Failure

The sodium recommendation for stage 4 CKD is 1,000-4,000 mg/day based on fluid balance, blood pressure and other diseases that may affect sodium requirements.

Calories in Stage 4 Kidney Failure

Decreasing your protein intake alone can result in 200-400 fewer calories a day. Weigh yourself and track your weight weekly to see if you need more calories.

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.
