2012-12-03 16:45

Can Patients with Renal Failure Eat Tomato SauceHealthy kidneys can filter out metabolic wastes and excessive fluids from body. The wastes and fluids are mainly from what you eat and drink. Therefore, if kidney disease occurs and renal function declines, to reduce burden on kidneys, you should reduce the consumption of foods which can produce high amount of wastes.

As tomato sauce is loaded in potassium, if you are suffering from advanced stage of renal failure, you should limit its intake restrictively.

Why the patients with renal failure should reduce the intake of potassium?

Potassium is a mineral that controls never and muscle function. One very important muscle-the heart-beats at a normal rhythm because of potassium. To keep normal muscle function and heart function, the potassium level in blood should be kept between 3.5 and 5.5 mEq/L.

If potassium in blood is too high, it can be dangerous. Some side effects of high potassium mainly include irregular heart beat, heart failure and even sudden death.

In renal failure, as kidneys are damaged significantly, they fail to remove potassium from body adequately. Therefore, high consumption of foods high in potassium like tomato sauce should be restricted.

Apart from limiting the intake of tomato sauce and other foods high in potassium, the following are things people with renal failure can do to keep their potassium at safe levels.

* Create an eating plan with the right amount of potassium.

* Limit dairy products or replace them with nondairy substitutes.

* Avoid salt substitutes and other seasonings that contain potassium.

* Do not skip dialysis.

* Leach foods high in potassium

The above article has described the reasons for limiting tomato sauce and how to cut down intake of potassium effectively. If you still have questions on your diet, please email to kidneyabc@hotmail.com.
