Diet for Children with End-Stage Renal Disease

2012-09-18 14:12

Diet for Children with End-Stage Renal DiseaseIf your child has been diagnosed with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), you are no doubt feeling distressed and bewildered. These feelings are normal. And once you realize that your kid's illness is a reality you must accept, you can take some practical measures to cope with the medical treatment. Here are some tips for diet arrangement.

* Have a low-protein diet. Children with azotemia and Uremia should limit the intake of protein. Animal protein is recommended, which can be found in foods such as eggs, fish and lean meat. Daily intake can be 20g.

* Eat foods rich in vitamins. Refer to more digestible foods that are rich in vitamins, especially vitamin B, C, and D. Avoid coarse foods which may damage the digestive tract and cause gastrointestinal bleeding. If children's urine output has not decreased and there is no overt edema, the intake of fluid cannot be restricted.

* Supplement water and salt in time. The reason is that dehydration and hyponatremia often occur in children with ESRD, especially those who suffer from long-term loss of appetite, nausea and diarrhea. However, the amount should be proper.

Pediatric patients will often complain much about the dietary restrictions, but they have no choice in order to be well. Parents are suggested to give them as much control over it as he is able to handle. For instance, parents can teach the child how to plan menus and so some meal preparation. Then, they can make foods "all by themselves". These foods can taste pretty good. If the kid is too young to plan menus, give as many choices of foods as possible.

Children with ESRD can make a list of favourite foods. And parents can talk to the dietitian to see whether there these foods can be incorporated into the daily meal.
