What Diet Is Needed By Patients With Kidney FailureKidney failure means patient’s kidney function is damaged severely, and patient’s kidneys fail to filtrate out the metabolic wastes from patient’s body adequately. As a result, many health problems will appear in patient’s body at this point.

Diet plays a key role in regulating patient’s health condition, and it is necessary for patients to choose a diet which is suitable for their condition. In fact, there are some important aspects should be considered by patients with kidney failure in their diet, which is very helpful for patients to protect their kidney function.

1. Appropriate protein:

Protein is an important nutrient which should be treated carefully by patients with kidney failure, because it can also produce lots of urea, which needs to be filtrated out by kidney. Too much protein intake will increase the workload of kidney and the accumulation of urea can cause many health problems, so it is necessary for patients to avoid taking much excess protein intake.

2. Low sodium:

Much sodium in body can cause many health problems, like edema and hypertension. Hypertension is a complication which can aggravate patient’s kidney damage obviously, so it is important for patients to have low sodium intake.

3. Low phosphorus and high calcium:

Phosphorus and calcium compete for absorption, and patients with kidney failure often have hyperphosphatemia and hypocalcemia, which can cause many complications in patient’s body, like renal osteopathy, itching, etc. Thereby, to prevent these problems and to protect patient’s health, it is necessary for patients to have low phosphorus and high calcium in their diet.

4. Moderate calory:

Moderate calory is also very necessary for patients with kidney failure, because it can guarantee the need of patients’ body activity, which will reduce decomposition of protein in patient’s body. As we know, the reduction of protein decomposition is very helpful for patients to protect their kidney function and overall health.

These are some important aspects that should be considered by patients with kidney failure, and patients should regulate their intake according to their own condition, so it is necessary for patients to ask for help from their doctor and a dietitian.
