When you have kidney disease, your kidneys are no longer working as well as they need to. Changing your diet can help protect your kidneys. It can also help you control other diseases, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, which can make kidney disease worse.
Most people who have kidney disease need to limit salt (sodium), fluids, and protein. Some also have to limit potassium and phosphorus.
There is no one diet that is right for everyone who has kidney disease. It may be hard to change your diet. You may have to give up many foods you like. But it is very important to make the recommended changes so you can stay healthy for as long as possible.
You need to get enough calories to be healthy and have energy. Your diet may change over time as your disease changes.
The purpose of this diet is to maintain a balance of electrolytes, minerals, and fluid in patients who have chronic kidney disease or who are on dialysis. Patients who are on dialysis, need this special diet to limit the buildup of waste products in their body. These waste products can also build up between dialysis treatments & increase the need of dialysis more often which is troublesome.
Most dialysis patients urinate very little or not at all. Limiting fluids between treatments is very important. Without urination, fluid will build up in the body and lead to excess fluid in the heart, lungs, and ankles.
