No one can deny that diet is very important for kidney disease patients, because it helps reduce burden on kidneys. What is the ideal diet for Kidney Failure patient? Let me introduce you several points that you should be concerned.
1. Increase calcium intake
Kidney Failure patients, especially those who are on hemodialysis should increase calcium intake. Recommended daily amount of calcium is 1,000 mg to 1,500 mg. Supplements of calcium and Dihydroxy calciferol can be taken.
3. Limit water
Either water or drinks need to be limited. Weight gain between two sessions of dialysis should not be more than 5% ( less than 3 kg). Too much water intake may cause heart failure, elevation of blood pressure, acute pulmonary edema or even death.
4. More high-quality protein intake
During dialysis, some proteins will leak out with dialyzate. Kidney Failure patients are suggested to increase high-quality protein intake. Recommended foods include egg white, milk, fish and lean meat, etc. To ensure they patients have enough energy, they are also asked to take enough calories.
5. Lower phosphorus in diet
Low phosphorous foods are rice, noodles, bread, non-dairy milk, fish, etc. High phosphorous foods are kelp, pumpkin, mushroom and spinach, etc.
6. Take enough vitamin B and folic acid to prevent anemia
