How to Manage Phosphorus Intake As a Kidney Disease Patient

2016-02-06 16:15

How to Manage Phosphorus Intake As a Kidney Disease PatientHow to manage Phosphorus intake as a kidney disease patient? This is a qustion concerned by many people, especially the kidney disease patient. Next let us have some details about this question.

What is phosphorus?

Phosphorus is a mineral found in your bones. Along with calcium, phosphorus is needed for building healthy strong bones, as well as keeping other parts of your body healthy.

Why phosphorus is important to your health?

Normal working kidneys can remove extra phosphorus in your blood. When you have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) your kidneys cannot remove phosphorus very well. High phosphorus levels can cause damage to your body. Extra phosphorus causes body changes that pull calcium out of your bones, making them weak. High phosphorus and calcium levels also lead to dangerous calcium deposits in blood vessels, lungs, eyes, and heart. So phosphorus and calcium control are very important for your overall health.

How to manage Phosphorus intake as a kidney disease patient?

Your phosphorus needs may vary, depending on your kidney function. For adults with kidney disease, generally 800 to 1,000 milligrams (mg) of phosphorus a day is the limit. Many healthy adults eat almost double this amount.

Nearly every food contains some phosphorus. As a general rule, foods high in protein are also high in phosphorus. If you have an earlier stage of kidney disease, you'll likely be advised to limit your intake of phosphorus and protein. A reduced-protein diet helps limit the amount of waste that builds up in your blood.

If you have late stage kidney disease and you're on dialysis, that will be different. Dialysis removes protein (in the form of waste) from your blood, so your protein needs increase, but you'll still need to choose lower phosphorus foods.
