Last Updated: May 20, 2024

About

People with compromised kidney function must adhere to a renal or kidney diet to cut down on the amount of waste in their blood. Wastes in the blood come from food and liquids that are consumed. When kidney function is compromised it does not filter or remove wastes properly. If wastes are left in the blood they can negatively effect a patients electrolytes. Following a kidney diet may also help promote kidney function and slow progression of complete kidney failure. A renal diet is one that is low in sodium, phosphorous and protein. Some patients may also need to limit potassium and even calcium. The renal parameters differs from person to person as metabolism varies, so it is essential that a renal dietitian takes care of each patient individually.

Wastes in the blood come from food and liquids that are consumed. People with kidney disease must adhere to a kidney diet to cut down on the amount of waste in their blood. Following a kidney diet may also bolster kidney function and delay total kidney failure. A kidney and/or renal diet is one that is low in sodium, phosphorous and protein. A kidney diet stresses the importance of consuming high-quality protein and limiting fluids. Some kidney diets may also call for limited potassium and calcium. Every person is different, and therefore, a dietician will work with each patient to come up with a kidney diet that is tailored to his or her needs.
