A Healthy Diet for Uremia Patients

A Healthy Diet for Uremia PatientsIf kidney disease is not controlled well, uremia can be caused at last. Uremia which is a very tough disease makes patients very bothered. To help patients with uremia, here we introduce some effective suggestions about diet which can contribute to treatment for uremia.

To begin with, get a general knowledge of uremia.

Uremia describes that kidney function decreases to less than 15%, and large quantities of wastes and toxins build up in body, leading to metabolic disorders and many serious complications. Moreover, patients with uremia always have decline of urine or no urine.

Thus, we can know that the fundamental cause of uremia is decreased kidney function. Patients with uremia should find ways to recover kidney function to treat uremia.

Now please see the below suggestions:

1. Limit intake of protein strictly

Why should protein be limited? There are two major causes. One is that proteinuria is very common with uremia patients, much protein can worsen disease condition. The other is that kidney function declines so severely that many wastes and toxins stack in body. In this case, much intake of protein can make kidney carry more burdens because protein is decomposed into urea which is a waste.

2. Low intake of potassium and sodium

Patients with uremia are very prone to high potassium level, so they need to limit intake of potassium to decrease burdens of kidney. In addition, high blood pressure and edema occur very obviously with uremia. Limiting intake of sodium and water can contribute to alleviating high blood pressure and edema.

3. Limit intake of phosphorus

In the similar way as potassium, phosphorus always deposits in body for patients with uremia, so they need to limit intake of phosphorus. What is more, another important reason for a low phosphorus diet is that balance of calcium and phosphorus should be kept in body, and due to high phosphorus level, calcium in bones can be pulled out to maintain this balance, leading to bone problems.

4. Eat more vitamins

Vitamins especially vitamin B, C and D can benefit patients with uremia a lot, supplying nutrients and enhancing immunity. Patients with uremia should have more intake of vitamins in daily life.

The above four suggestions are very suitable and effective for most patients with uremia. However, as we know disease conditions vary from one to another, thus, if you want to know specific diet what you should have, please contact us freely. We are very pleased to help you.
