A vegetarian diet is good for people who have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). This article is about the general guidance for patients with creatinine 5.4 and potassium 4.4.
However, before I give you the suggestions, I should remind you that since there are four types of vegetarian, some suggested foods may be not right for someone. Any questions, please be free to contact me. Either emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org or leaving a message below is available.
Here is the general guidance for vegetarian
You are required to take low protein but high-quality protein foods, which may include:
-Soy protein: tofu, tempeh, natto
-Wheat protein: seitan
-Nut butters: up to 2 tablespoons—about 28 grams a day
-Soy milk and soy yogurt
In general, dairy products are the main sources of phosphorous. You can male up for dairy products by choosing unenriched rice milk and yogurt made from rice-based products.
Most vegetables and fruits contain high level of potassium. Since they are the main diet sources, they should be taken very carefully. In that case, you are nor recommended to take spinach, potatoes, tomatoes, bananas, pineapple and carambola, etc.
● Other suggestions
Except for the above suggestion, you should also be limit the sodium and fluid intake. As for specific suggestions, you can send your test report to us and ask for free suggestions.
Treatment for creatinine 5.4 and potassium 4.4
You cannot simply depend on diet for lowering creatinine and potassium levels, because no certain food or drink can solve the underlying problem. Therefore, you should take immediate treatment to repair damaged renal tissues so as to protect and enhance remaining kidney function.
We treat kidney disease mainly by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which are more natural and effective than over-the-counter medicines and dialysis. Wanna know details? Please be free to contact us!
