The Ideal Diet after a Kidney Transplant

The Ideal Diet after a Kidney Transplant

A kidney transplant is a surgical procedure where your kidneys are cleansed and rebuild using the kidneys of a deceased person, in order to flush out the excessive waste fluids from the kidneys. It is of paramount importance and your dietary patterns and lifestyle should be altered after you go through a kidney transplant. Your dietician will help you out by preparing your diet chart to clearly list out the foods that you should consume and those which you should avoid after the surgery. The diet chart that would be prepared for you would be highly subjective and it would totally depend on your lifestyle, medical history, family health records, genetically transmitted conditions and such others. Apart from improving the condition of your kidney and assisting your transplant, the diet chart will also help you to lose weight, boost your metabolism and enhance your immune system. Some of the most common recommendations that your dietician may give you are as follows:

  • Eating at least 5 full servings of fresh fruits and vegetables each day as both are an important part of a healthy diet for a person who has just undergone a kidney transplant. The vegetables should mostly be eaten after cooking/boiling as per the suggestions of your dietician.
  • Having enough of fiber rich foods in your daily diet is essential as it speeds up the process of digestion and prevents constipation by promoting frequent and easy bowel movements.
  • If you are a non-vegetarian, then you should be going for lean meat alternatives which are low on fat and high on nutritional value. Examples of such meat are fishes and poultry. Additionally, you should also avoid all kinds of red meat as it is high on fat.
  • Consume low-fat milk and dairy products as they help to prevent the fat accumulation inside the body and also maintain an acceptable level of calcium and phosphorus inside your body.
  • Maintain a low level of iodized salt in your meals, as it helps to keep your blood pressure under control.
  • Over the counter health supplements like vitamins and proteins can also be taken, if recommended by your dietician.

1. Avoid caffeine found in coffee, tea, chocolate, cola, and some pain relievers.[four to six hours before bedtime.] 2. Quiet, dark, and cool environment can help promote sound sleep. [use heavy curtains, or an eye mask to block light, and also keeping computers, tvs, and other work materials out of the room will help promote mental bonding between your bedroom and sleep] 3. Avoid stressful, stimulating activities like doing work, discussing emotional issues. Physically and psychologically stressful activities can cause the body to secrete the stress hormone cortisol, which is associated with increasing alertness. Get your cbc esr and random blood sugar levelsdone and revert.

My son 13 years old. His problem is pass the urine at sleeping time. Kindly suggest me best solution.

Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS), MS - Urology, MBBS
Urologist, Ahmedabad
Dear , this is a common problem in children of both sexes. It could be that he has some defect in lumber spine like spina bifida or some adhesions. In majority of cases no organic defect is found either in vertebral column or spinal cord. In most cases there is psychological problem or faulty habit. To decide what it is one wants to know about history like 1 did he have any dry nights at any stage of his life or from early childhood bedwetting continued? 2. When did it start? 3. Did it start after the birth of second child? 4. Is someone in the home is hard task master or strict displetarian? 5. Is his teacher rather harsh on him? 6. Does he have any close relationship with anyone in the family? in short this a sort of cry for help or attention seeking. So parents will have deal with tactfully and softly 1. Be soft and gentle with him 2. When you come home from work firstly inquire about him and talk to him about how his day passed. 3. When he comes home from school take notice of him and talk to him 4. At night ask him to pass urine before he goes to bed. 5 find out roughly the time when he wets the bed and arrange for an alarm take to toilet to pass urine. This is the best and simplest way of getting his brain to wake up and pass urine in toilet and not in bed. 6. Do not give him milk or any drink at bedtime. 7. Ask him to make resolution at bedtime not to pass urine in bed. 8. If he has problem at school with boys or teacher sort it out quietly. If somebody is harsh on him ask them to be soft on him 8. After all of these measure, if nothing works continue the same and add tab. Imipramine hydrochloride (impranil or depsonil) 25mg. One hour before his bedtime. If bedwetting happens in the daytime sleep as well then give it three times a day for at least 3 months and stop the medications to see whether he remains dry. If not then continue for 3 more months.
