When people get Kidney Failure, they are required to take a restricted diet to reduce burden on kidneys. How many phosphorous dose Kidney Failure patient must take?
Phosphorous intake for Kidney Failure
How much phosphorous can Kidney Failure patients take is determined by their blood tests. In hemodialysis the net positive phosphorus balance in 48 hours is 1200-1400 mg/day, of which dialysis only removes 500-600 mg/session.
In general, Kidney Failure patients are suggested to include a diet of phosphorus restriction of 800-1,000 mg daily.
