Diet Tips for Kidney Failure Patient Who are Undergoing Dialysis

2015-06-04 16:20

Diet Tips for Kidney Failure Patient Who are Undergoing DialysisDialysis as one of the most common cure for kidney failure, it so can relieve some of the symptoms caused by kidney disorder. But it is still not as efficient as healthy kidneys, in part because you can't be hooked up to the machine after every meal. Because of this, it is recommended to go on a special diet limiting certain nutrients and fluid so they don't build up between treatments.

Diet tips for kidney failure patient who are undergoing dialysis:

1. Phosphorus

It is impossible to avoid phosphorus altogether because it is present in most food; however, limiting phosphorus to approximately 1000 mg daily or less will keep it from building up in your bloodstream.

Foods that contain phosphorus include: dairy products or anything made with milk such as yogurt, pudding and ice cream, nuts and beans, and processed foods with phosphate additives, especially dark colas. Look on the ingredients label for anything that has ‘phos’ in the word, and avoid that food.

2. Potassium

It is another nutrient that may build up in your bloodstream between treatments if you eat too many high potassium foods.

Most dietitians recommend between 2000 and 3000 mg of potassium daily for patients on dialysis, but this might be adjusted depending on your individual potassium labs. Certain high potassium fruits and vegetables you may need to avoid include bananas, oranges, potatoes, tomatoes, dairy products, nuts, beans, and whole grains.

3. Sodium

It is not quite as strict as, but if you have heart failure, coronary artery disease, or other heart conditions you should pay high attention to it.

4. Fluid

Usually the restriction is manageable to most patients, between 1500 mL and 2000 mL daily depending on the patients weight and labs.
