When people think of kidney failure, they usually think of them in terms of bladder and kidney symptoms. By consuming enough water and avoiding foods that can irritate the kidneys, many people think they will be able to avoid these. However often this is not always the case. This is because the kidneys have many functions and therefore when things go wrong, kidney failure symptoms are much more widespread and harder to detect. In fact sometimes the symptoms may not seem directly related to the kidneys at first glance. But here, by understanding some of the major roles of the kidneys we will see how these kidney failure symptoms occur.
Chronic patients need receive standard treatment. In addition, they also need manage their diet strictly, which can slow the progression of worsening renal function. Then we will talk about diet for Chronic Renal Failure patients as follows:
1. Control intake of protein reasonably
Under the premise of meet basic requirements of patients' body, patients should try to reduce intake of protein so as to reduce the kidney burden. According to the research, the proper intake of protein for Chronic Renal Failure patients is 0.5-0.6g/kg of body weight per day. Generally speaking, 250g of milk, one egg and 50g of lean meat is necessary for Chronic Renal Failure patients each day. High protein diet can lead to a rise in urea nitrogen level. But inadequate intake of protein will cause malnutrition and may lead to a rise in creatinine level.
2. Pay attention to low salt diet
3. Eat high potassium food carefully
High blood potassium level can restrain heartbeat and even can lead to cardiac arrest. Patients take potassium mainly through food. Potassium is excreted by kidney. If renal function declines, the kidney will excrete less of potassium, which will lead to a rise in blood potassium level. So Chronic Renal Failure patients should not eat high potassium food, such as banana, orange, monosodium glutamate, soy sauce, potato, tuber mustard, mushroom, agaric, nori, jujube, almond, ham, scallop, dried sea shrimp, etc.
