What Should I Eat if Remaining 11% of Kidney Function

2013-11-15 15:27

What Should I Eat if Remaining 11% of Kidney FunctionOnly 11 % of kidney function remaining indicates that you are in the stage 5 kidney disease and your kidneys can not filter the wastes and toxins in your blood properly. You have to take a dialysis to eliminate the feeling of sickness. What to eat is important for retaining the remaining kidney function.

Diet Plan for patients with 11% of kidney function remaining

Under normal circumstances, food provides the body with nutrients. The blood circulates these nutrients to the body’s cells, and the kidneys remove excess wastes and liquids. Patients with 11% of kidney function remaining do not have this ability, but you can reduce the amount of wastes that accumulate by monitoring what you eat and drink.

-Though dialysis can remove the excess fluid from your body, it can build up between the dialysis sessions, causing weight gain, edema and some other negative impacts. Therefore, you should limit your intake of water. Food such as melons, celery, oranges, tomatoes should be eaten sparingly.

-Sodium can cause the body retain fluids and blood pressure elevates. Therefore, food such as salt, canned food, bacon etc should be limited.

-High quality proteins help the body to build muscle and restore damaged tissues, while it produces fewer wastes. If you have begun dialysis, high quality protein foods such as fish, poultry and egg white are encouraged to eat. If you have not begun dialysis, you should not consume high amount of protein.

-Though potassium has the function of decreasing blood pressure, too much potassium affects heart rate. Foods such as banana, broccoli, kiwi etc should be restricted.

-Phosphorus can cause bones to lose calcium and skin itch. So food such as dairy products, nuts and peanut should be not eat too much.

-There are also calories and vitamins etc which you should pay attention to. (For more information, you can leave us a message or email to kidneyabc@hotmail.com, and our dietician will make a personalized dietary according to your condition.)
