How to Eat Healthy for People with Kidney Disease during ChristmasChristmas is a grand festival in the western. People can enjoy a long holiday and relax themselves after a year’s busy work. However, the holiday is sometimes challenging if you are a kidney disease patient. That is because the average Christmas dinner has over 2,000 calories. Here are some tips which can help people with kidney disease eat healthy on Christmas.

Select right foods at the dinner table

Facing the huge Christmas dinner, you should improve your self-control and select what you can eat, but not what you want to eat. Ask your renal dietitian about what you can eat and what you to pass on when you go to a holiday gathering.

Limit salty foods

Salty foods can make you feel thirsty. If you eat too much salt, you may drink more fluid. It is very likely to cause retention of fluids and sodium, thus leading to edema. If you are on dialysis, it may possibly make your next dialysis difficulty.

Take phosphorus binders

When you go to a gathering party, you should remember to take your phosphate binders. As you may eat foods high in phosphorus, the binders can help you reduce the digestion of phosphorus effectively.

Trim the fat

Turkey and other poultry foods are feasts for people on Christmas. When eating, people with kidney disease should take off the skin. If you decide to eat dessert, you should choose the kidney-friendly foods like fruit pie, cobbler, pound cake or lemon meringue. Meanwhile, you should avoid foods like fried foods, creamy dishes and casseroles which are high in potassium and sodium.
