Protein Protein is a good resource of nutrients. Normally, to decrease the workload of kidneys, the consumption of protein foods should be restricted. In the early stage, the quantity can be controlled within 0.6-0.8g/kg per day. When the disease progress to a severe stage, 0.4 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight may be necessary. For people on dialysis, about 1.0-1.2g/kg protein per day may be needed to replace the protein that lost during this alternative therapy. Have a question?

Sodium When there are high blood pressure and edema, it is essential to watch the salt intake. Otherwise, the condition will become poorer and poorer. Meanwhile, CKD patients should stay away form salted products, pickled foods and other sodium-rich foods as much as possible.
Fluid In the initial stage, the amount of fluid you take should not be limited. As the disease progresses, patients may experience swelling around the faces, ankles or limbs. In this condition, the quantity of fluid should be restricted both in drinks and foods you eat.
Phosphorus In CKD, as kidneys become less effective, extra phosphorus will accumulate in the blood. And excess phosphorus can cause loss of calcium, resulting in osteoporosis or bone fracture. Generally, foods loaded with potassium can be found in yeast, mushroom, nuts and so on.
Besides, if the lab test show high potassium level, the intake of potassium also need to be limited. If not controlled well, the possibility of irregular heart beat or heart failure will be increased.
