Diet for Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 3

Patients with chronic kidney disease stage 3 might be referred to a dietician because diet is a very important part of treating chronic kidney disease stage 3 besides the immune treatment we mentioned in other articles. In some countries, diet or food is regarded as the natural treatment. The principles of diet for patients with chronic kidney disease stage 3 are generally low salt, low protein (high protein for patients with Nephrotic Syndrome) and good quality protein, low fat(lipid), low phosphorus, low potassium, low sodium and high vitamin.
Low salt What Type of Vegetables Are Permitted for CKD Patients
All chronic kidney disease patients with different stages except stage 1 should limit the intake of salt. As we mentioned before, one typical symptom of chronic kidney disease is edema or swelling. What is the cause of edema or swelling? One function of kidney is to filtrate the water, through which, urine comes into being. However, when the kidney is damaged, water can not discharge out, leading to retention of water in the body, which is called edema or swelling. If patients with chronic kidney disease stage 3 have much salt, which will lead to the retention of water and sodium, worsening edema or swelling.Foods to Avoid for Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Failure
Low (high) Protein and good quality protein.Acupuncture for Kidney Disease
Because the body cannot filter creatinine as effectively, your physician will recommend reducing your protein intake to minimize the amount of creatinine in your blood. While your recommendations may vary based on age and gender, stage 3 CKD patients will typically eat about 0.8 g of protein per kilogram of body weight -- 1 kg equals about 2.2 lbs. Because your protein intake is more limited, your physician will recommend choosing the very best protein sources, meaning those that are low in fat and eaten with minimal waste produced in the body. Examples of protein sources that meet these criteria include fish and eggs. You also can add protein powders to oatmeal or cereal to increase your protein intake. In addition, for patients with Nephrotic Syndrome, they should keep high protein intake for there is lots of protein lost in urine every day. One characteristic of Nephrotic Syndrome is a large amount of proteinuria(Proteinuria and Kidney Disease), the protein of which in the urine is more than 3.5g per day.
What is good quality protein food? After metabolism, protein will transform into nitrogen, which is one of toxins in the blood and should be discharged out of the body together with urine. However, when patients are in chronic kidney disease stage 3, the renal glomeruli are damaged, which makes nitrogen can not filtrate from the pores of filtration membrane. In this case, patients should take in good quality protein food, which can produce less nitrogen in the metabolism, and give kidney less burden. Food which is good quality one is such as lean meat, milk, and eggs, etc. in addition, egg white should not be eaten by patients with chronic kidney disease stage 3. Beans are considered to be a kind of bad quality protein food for it can produce more nitrogen during the metabolism.
Low phosphorus Do Pods Make Your Urine Foamy in Kidney Disease Patients
Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease can affect your bones, so your physician may recommend limiting your phosphorus intake because excess phosphorus can rob the bones of calcium. Foods that are high in phosphorus include dairy products, dried beans, nuts, peanut butter and beer. Your physician also may recommend taking a medication called a phosphate binder that helps to reduce the amount of phosphorus your body absorbs. List of Salad Dressings Okay for Stage 3 CKD
Low potassium Can Patients With Kidney Disease Drink Bottled Water
There is no doubt that potassium is one essential and important element. When the urine every day is more than 1000ml, or the level of potassium is normal, it is not necessary to limit the intake amount of potassium. However, if the level is high and patients with chronic kidney disease stage 3 do not lower it, high potassium will make the heart beat faster and even threat patients’ life. Food which is rich in potassium is such as bananas, oranges, lemons, seeds, raisin, and so on.
Low sodium
Sodium is another factor that must be monitored when you have stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease because you may be beginning to experience some effects related to poor fluid regulation. Excess sodium in your diet can attract fluids in the body. To reduce your sodium intake, avoid processed foods like hot dogs and frozen foods, in which sodium is used as a preservative.

A healthy diet consisting of raw foods like fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean meats is suggested for the patient so that the kidneys do not have to work as hard to break down fats and toxins.
