LOW PROTEIN DIET IN CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE

Some major points to know before consuming your food

  • The food you consume can be responsible for more accumulation of waste products in the blood and worsen the kidneys function. 
  • The food plays a very crucial role in the functioning of the kidneys.
  •  ‘Avoiding certain foods from the diet’ can be a great step towards helping your kidney recovery and prevention from diseases. 
  • Food that is rich in sodium, phosphorous and potassium leads to most of the kidney diseases. 
  • Doctors suggest patients to limit the intake of food that contained above nutrients. 
  • Protein is the nutrient which can be both beneficial and dangerous for the kidney patients. 
  • Doctors says, the intake of protein should be limited if the patient is between 3 to 5 stage of chronic kidney disease.
  • High protein in food can be very difficult for damaged kidneys to filter the waste of protein.
  •  However, while one is on dialysis, intake of high-quality protein is important for the body.

Food that should be consumed in chronic kidney disease

Protein is a very important nutrient for our body. Although the patients with chronic disease should not consume high protein diet they can take low protein diet. We get protein from plants and animals. 

 The foods that has low amount of protein are below:

Plant source of protein:

Low protein fruits for CKD

  • Apples- it has 0.3g of protein per 100 grams
  • Bananas- it has 1.1g of protein per 100 grams
  • Grapes- it has 0.6g of protein per 100 grams
  • Berries- it has 0.7g of protein per 100 grams

Low protein vegetable for CKD

  • Broccoli- it has 3g of protein per 100 grams
  • Tomatoes- it has 1.31g of protein per 100 grams

Low protein grains

  • Rice- it has 2.7g of protein per 100 grams
  • Pasta- it has 5g of protein per 100 grams

Animal source of protein:

Low protein (fish and meat)    

  • White-flesh fish- it has 20g to 25g of protein per 100 grams
  • White-meat poultry- it has 31g of protein per 100 grams

(Consuming high protein can accelerate kidney damage. According to data, 0.55-0.60 grams per kilogram of your weight cease the probability of kidney damage.)
