Renal Diets - Renal Diet Recipes

A special renal diet can help to control the buildup of waste products and fluid in your blood and to decrease the workload of your kidneys. Renal diets may also help to slow down the loss of kidney function. The main goal of the renal diet is to keep you healthy. Good renal diets include control the intake of fluids, potassium, phosphorus, and sodium (salts).

Renal Diet Fact #1 - Proteins

Pre-dialysis patients are often asked to limit protein intake in their renal diet to slow the progression of kidney disease. This changes with the start of dialysis: the patient would now need much more protein in their renal diets. Patients on peritoneal dialysis need even higher protein, because a large amount of protein can be lost in the peritoneal fluid which is discarded.

Protein is found in two types of foods:

* in large amounts in foods from animal sources such as poultry, meat, seafood, eggs, milk, cheese and other dairy products.
* in smaller amounts in foods from plant sources such as breads, cereals, other starches and grains, and vegetables and fruits.

Renal Diet Fact #2 - Potassium

The daily intake of potassium in your renal diet needs to be controlled if you are on dialysis. This helps prevent hyperkalemia (a high level of potassium), a common problem for people on dialysis.

Renal Diet Fact #3 - Salt

Most patients need to control the sodium (salt) content in their renal diet. This helps maintain fluid balance in the body to avoid fluid retention and elevated blood pressure. Salt is high on the followings:

# table salt and foods with added salt such as snack foods, soups and processed cheese
# some canned foods, prepared foods and "fast foods"
# foods pickled in brine such as pickles, olives and sauerkraut
# smoked and cured foods such as ham, bacon and luncheon meats

Instead of using salt, you may try mustard, garlic, pepper, lemon juice, to make a meal more tasty.

Renal Diet Fact #4 - Phosphate

High phosphate levels cause itchiness in the short term and bone disease in the long term. The most common sources are dairy products i.e. milk, cheese, yoghurt as well as eggs, bones of fish, etc.

Most of renal diets avoid these foods as ingredients. If your phosphate is too high, try to use milk substitutes when cooking, e.g. Snopro, Milupa LPD.

Renal Diet Fact #4 - Fluids

Renal diets recommend the control of intake of fluids.  Don't forget to count soup, sauces, jelly, custard, etc as part of your fluid allowance.
