Dialysis is ordered when the kidneys are poor enough that cannot remove the toxins in the blood properly. A diet management helps improve kidney function and maximizes the use of dialysis.
Here some dietary notes for the patients are given, during the dialysis.
● You should be assured the sufficient supply of protein, the ration should be 0.6 gram/kg weight, such as, if your weight is 50kg, then you should take the protein about 30g per day. But here the protein only refers to the animal protein, such as egg white, milk, fish, and lean meat (chicken), but the amount of the meat and fish should also be limited.
● The trace element of Fe, Ca, and Zn should be given to you, also Vitamin B is also a rather important element for the patient on dialysis. Here are some foods which can be good for you, the fish, lean meat (chicken), and milk can be good, also, cereal can also be good for you, and the black fungus, is also a good choice.
● If you show swelling, you should control the water intake about 500ml every day. If not, the water intake needs not to be limited, but you should not drink too much water, either.
● The food high in salt is not a good thing for you, for this may do harm to your heart and blood pressure.
The toxins in our body are divided into 2 kinds, the first kind is the molecular toxin, such as the creatinine, urea and uric acid, and the other class is the pathogenic toxins, which comes from the immune disorder as I explain to you above. The common dialysis can only discharge the micro molecule toxins, such as the creatinine and urea, but the pathological toxins cannot be cleared by the dialysis, and they are continuing to injure our body, and take the dialysis for long, the patient may rely on the dialysis, and your kidney may lose its function gradually. So the most important now is to improve the kidney function during the dialysis, and only in this way, you can get rid of the dialysis forever.
