Diet is always important for kidney disease patients, especially for those who are at the End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). Now, with the beginning of Eid-Al-Fitr, people must be very happy to celebrate this festival, but should also maintain a restricted diet. I would like to give Kidney Failure patients some diet suggestions during Eid-Al-Fitr.
Basic diet principles for Kidney Failure patients
-Low sodium. Reduce the sodium intake to 2 grams each day. Eid-Al-Fitr is called “Salty Eid” because a larger variety of dishes like beef or mutton, a barbecue, or fried liver of the animal are served. You should be very careful about the intake. High sodium in the blood can aggravate swelling or high blood pressure.
-Control sugar intake. Eid-Al-Fitr is also known as “Sweet Eid” because of the amount and variety of sweet dishes, including Sheer Khurma, pasta and dates, cham cham, Barfi, Gulab Jamun, and ras malai. Different countries may have different dishes. No matter what you eat, ask your doctor or dietitian to prevent from high blood sugar level or too much protein accumulation.

Not only diet but also medication should be concerned. As for Kidney Failure, patients are usually suggested to take dialysis. However, dialysis can only replace kidneys to filter blood but cannot repair damaged kidney tissues. To treat kidney disease from the root, patients should take treatments that can purify the blood and improve kidney function. In that case, I recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, an external application based on traditional Chinese herbs. With osmotic device, the effective ingredients can permeate into kidney lesions directly. They can dilate blood vessels, reduce inflammations and degrade extracellular matrixes, thus increasing the whole blood circulation. Then, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to function well.
