A Chronic Renal Failure Diet PlanDiet plays a very important role in the recovery of kidney failure patients. What are really good for me? What should be restricted? How much can I take? All these questions cannot be explained very clearly just in an article. So I will make you a general chronic renal failure diet plan.

What is a renal failure diet plan?

A renal failure diet plan restricts the amount of protein and sodium in your diet. You may also have to limit phosphorus, potassium, and fat. A renal failure diet plan can help decrease the amount of waste made by your body, which can help your kidneys work better. It may also help to delay the end stage renal failure. Your diet may change over time as your health condition changes. You may also need to make other dietary changes if you have other health problems, such as diabetes.

What should be included in my renal failure diet plan?

1) Low quantity but high-quality protein intake. Foods that are of high-quality protein are egg white, lean meat, and milk. Your caregiver will tell you how much protein to eat each day.

2) Limited sodium intake. If you have high blood pressure or swelling, limit your sodium intake to 1500mg each day. Table salt, canned foods, soups, salted snacks, and processed meats, like deli meats and sausage, are high in sodium.

3) Limited potassium intake. Potassium is found in fruits and vegetables, such as spinage, carrot, mushroom, pumpkin, peach and orange. However, for patients with hypokalemia due to poor appetite or long-term use of diuretics, potassium intake should be moderately increased.

4) Limit the amount of phosphorus you eat. Your kidneys cannot get rid of extra phosphorus that builds up in your blood. This may cause your bones to lose calcium and weaken. Foods that are high in phosphorus are dairy products, beans, peas, nuts, and whole grains. Phosphorus is also found in cocoa, beer, and cola drinks.

5) Limit the amount of liquids each day. If your body retains fluids, you will have swelling and fluid may build up in your lungs. This can cause other health problems, such as shortness of breath.
