What foods should a CKD stage 5 patient take & which to avoid? Having no dialysis, but protein in Urine ++.Why tomatoes not allowed ,cooked or uncooked? What about lemon and apple cider vinegar?

1. Know your allotted protein amount and strive to eat that amount each day. Limiting protein helps reduce waste buildup in the blood and can help control uremia. However, a low-protein diet coupled with loss of appetite also puts you at high risk for malnutrition. The recommended amount of protein to eat in stage 5 is 0.6 to 0.75 grams of protein per kilogram body weight. A nutrition assessment by a registered dietitian will determine the right amount of protein for you. 2. Eat enough calories to maintain your weight, even if you are overweight. Inadequate calorie intake may occur in stage 5 CKD due to appetite troubles, gastrointestinal problems, aversion to certain animal proteins, chronic inflammation, medications, depression and other medical conditions such as diabetes or heart disease. Even if you are overweight, a low calorie intake and weight loss is not recommended in stage 5. Aim for adequate calories to prevent weight loss and to help preserve your body’s muscle stores. Ask your doctor or dietitian about a nutritional supplement for a CKD non-dialysis diet if you are experiencing poor appetite and weight loss. 3. Monitor potassium levels that may increase due to low urine output or from medications. Potassium builds up in the body when kidney function declines. Avoid the highest potassium foods and track your potassium level by getting regular blood tests. Tomatoes are thought to increase risk ofr stones in kidney by some people and proscribe it.

Hello. Doctor I always have leakage of some sticky fluid for about 2-3 times in a day even though after urinating. It is always around 1 drop at a time.

Hello, Thanks for the query. When a person has long standing diabetes, it does affect kidney function, even when it is very well controlled. But if the blood glucose levels are not in proper check then damage to kidney is much earlier and more. Since you have not mentioned any thing about blood glucose levels and HbA1c%, it is difficult to know. Further if the patient also has hypertension, then unless that is well controlled (120 to 130 /70 to 80 mm Hg), there can be more stress on kidney. To reduce creatinine, first and foremost is to achieve a strict blood glucose control with FBG :<100 mg, PP :160 to 170 mg & HbA1c% <7. Plus if patient is not on either ACE inhibitor or ARB, then it should be started. Secondly protein intake should be restricted to about 0.6 g / kg body weight per day. Plus should do less vigorous physical activity and drink enough liquids. Thanks.

Few tips on Diet for kidney disease - have a low protein diet (decrease in milk and its products and also decrease in the intake of pulses and nuts etc)- can use corn oil, sunflower oil, olive oil for cooking -decrease the intake of butter, ghee, cream,coconut etc - avoid farsan food items - whole grain cereals are best for carbohydrate intake - get your blood checked for electrolyte levels regularly and adjust salt in diet as per the report values.

I feel that he is having a chronic inflammatory process settled in his urogenital system. Laser urethrotomies will probably give him the best long-term result. Please consult an urologist, specially endo urologist.
