When you experience renal dysfunction, the renal diet may ask you to limit the amount of protein. Azotemia may occurs to you when your creatinine level is high. To avoid deteriorating of the renal dysfunction, you had better limit the intake of protein. You are suggested to take high-quality protein if necessary, such as fish, eggs and lean meat.

Sodium and Water

Sodium and water do not need to be limited if you don’t have the symptoms of oliguria, high blood pressure and swelling. You can take less of them. Once these symptoms occur, you should limit the intake of sodium and water strictly in case of water-sodium retention happening. Too much sodium and water will aggravate the condition of renal dysfunction and increase creatinine level.


If you happen to have the symptom of high potassium with high creatinine level,you should avoid the foods with rich potassium, such as bananas, broccoli, potatoes and oranges. So, low-potassium foods are recommended to you: cucumber, carrot, apple, grape and so on. If you want to know more about foods with low -potassium, you can talk to online doctor freely.
