Diet for Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 5 PatientsChronic Kidney Disease Stage 5 (CKD Stage 5) means that your kidneys nearly fail to work effectively. In the condition, it is important to change what you eat and drink so as to protect remaining renal function and live better life. Here, we will talk about the diet for chronic kidney disease for the patients.

Stage 5 kidney disease patients have different dietary requirements from the healthy people. Due to decreased renal function, kidney no longer function completely. Then, your body systems will be in a mess. Namely you will suffer a lot, like swelling, high blood pressure, itching skin, sleep disorders, gastrointestinal tract damage, cardiovascular disease and so on. In order to control these symptoms, it is important to make the individualized diet plan. The followings are the several factors that stage 5 renal disease patients need to put into consideration while arranging a diet plan.


It is time to regulate protein intake according to changes of your illness conditions. Eating too much protein will be the big burden to the damaged kidneys.
