Effects and Side Effects of Eating Bananas for CKD Patients
Generally speaking, excessive sodium is discharged by our kidneys, but for
people with Chronic Kidney Disease, their kidneys are damaged and can not remove
the extra sodium smoothly, which will cause the accumulation of sodium in our
body. In addition, because kidneys have lost the ability to control the balance
of water, excessive water can not be removed as well. Building up of large
amount of sodium and fluid will give rise to swelling which may show in the
face, inside ankle, around eyes or other parts of our body. Besides it,
retention of sodium and fluid can also cause increase of blood pressure,
shortness of breath and fluid around our heart and lungs. Therefore, limiting
the intake of sodium is of great importance for people with Chronic Kidney
Disease.Nursing Cares for Kidney Shrinkage Patients Low Purine Diet for Chronic Kidney Disease Patients

barbecue sauce, steak sauce, teriyaki sauce, crackers, potato chips, corn chips,
pretzels, tortilla chips, fermented bean curd, rotten eggs, and pickles.
