Ⅱ Heat in diet: Generally, the intake of heat should range from 35~40kcal per one kg weight every day. And about one third of the heat should come from fat while more heat should be supplied by carbohydrate.
Ⅲ Mineral salt and vitamin in diet: Patients with Uremia often have high blood pressure and (or) hypernatremia, so the intake of sodium salt should be limited. At the same time, depending on the condition of electrolytes in the blood, the volume of potassium should be controlled in the diet. The patients with anuria on hemodialysis should reduce the ingestion of high potassium food. During the day of non-hemodialysis, the patients should strictly limit potassium; however, during the day of hemodialysis, the patients should prevent hypokalemia due to excessively clearing up potassium in the blood during hemodialysis. Since patients with end stage Chronic Renal Failure often have low level calcium in the blood and high level phosphorus, they should increase the intake of calcium and limit phosphorus intake.
