Stage 4 CKD with kidney function at 33 is a serious condition, which requires dialysis in the near future. What meat is safe to eat with Stage 4 CKD patients?
Meat safe for Stage 4 CKD patients
Stage 4 CKD patients have severely damaged kidney function. The kidneys have failed to eliminate wastes like creatinine and urea nitrogen adequately. If you eat too much red meat or seafood, your kidneys have to work harder to work. Therefore, you’d better avoid red meat like poultry, beef and mutton, while you are recommended to take lean meat and fish. Consult your doctor how much meat you can take. You can also email to firstname.lastname@example.org, better enclosing your test report, and our doctors will reply you reply within 24 hours.
Other foods for CKD Stage 4 patients
There are some diet restrictions that Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease patients have to follow. Some foods may need to be changed in your diet. These may include limits on protein, sodium, potassium, phosphorous, fluid, carbohydrates, fat and even calcium in your diet. A dietitian who specializes in kidney disease can help you with a meal plan that is right for you. Here is a general guidance:
Protein: 0.6 gram to 0.8 gram per kg of body weight is OK to be taken.
Sodium: You’d better take sodium less than 2g each day.
Potassium and phosphorous: The changes should be based on your blood test report.
Fluid: If you have swelling, you have to follow a strict restriction of fluid intake. How much you can drink is calculated according to your body weight and urine output.
Other limits differ from person to person, but the above requirements are very important for you.
Except for diet, you should not take it as replacement as medications. In our hospital, we treat kidney disease mainly by natural Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). If you are interested in it, you can leave a message below.
