Foods’ Taboos for Diabetic Kidney DiseaseDiabetic Kidney Disease, also known as Diabetic Nephropathy is a severe complication of uncontrolled diabetes. Apart from medical treatments, it is necessary to work with a dietitian to create an eating plans that’ right for you. because Diet is one of the most important treatments in managing diabetes and kidney disease.

Candy (candy bars, hard candy, chocolate, jelly beans, gum drops), regular sugar, molasses, ice cream, honey, etc, all contribute to high-sugar foods.


Candy, sweets, carbohydrates that can be quickly converted into glucose will have great impact on the patient’s blood glucose levels, therefore it is very necessary that diabetes patients should restrict their daily carbohydrates intake to help control their blood sugar level through diets.

High-protein foods

When kidney is damaged, excessive protein will increase the burden on the kidney. Moderate intake of high-quality protein rather than high-quantity protein is recommended for diabetics with kidney disease. Generally, a glass of milk, one egg white and 0.6g of lean meat can meet patients’ protein need.

High-salt diet

High-sodium foods include canned foods, salted chips and snacks, condiment, pizza, processed foods, salty cheeses, etc.
