There is no certain food that should be avoided for kidney disease patients, but some foods should be taken with limitation. Can Stage 4 CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) patient eat cottage cheese.
Cottage cheese for Stage 4 CKD patients
CKD Stage 4 means the kidneys are severely damaged, failing to maintain electrolyte balance. Potassium and phosphorous are two common minerals filtered by kidneys. In Stage 4 CKD patients, high potassium or phosphorous levels can cause some problems such as shortness of breath, muscle cramps or itching skin, etc.
Whether cottage cheese Stage 4 CKD can eat is based on the patient’s blood test report. You can send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message below. Our doctor on duty will reply you within 24 hours.
Who can take cottage cheese?
If kidney disease patients have low albumin, their dietitian may recommend extra protein, snacks for them. If they take phosphate binders, they may be instructed to take them with protein-containing snacks to control phosphorus, such as cottage cheese and egg whites.
Before you decide to take it, please read the label, watching out the potassium and phosphorous levels.
Treatment for Stage 4 CKD patients
A kidney-friendly diet is helpful but cannot treat kidney disease. Medication is very necessary for controlling symptoms and slowing down the progression of kidney disease.
I suggest Traditional Chinese Medicine, which can increase blood circulation so that kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair the damaged renal tissues. As long as kidney function increases, all symptoms can be relieved, and patients can avoid Kidney Failure.
