Suggested Dietary Plan for People with Stage 3 CKD
A reasonable dietary plan is very important for people with stage 3 CKD. In this article, we will talk about this issue in detail. Then let us have a look at the following tips:
Appropriate intake of protein foods
For people with stage 3 CKD, it is necessary for them to pay much attention to the ingestion of protein, as too much protein will increase the burden of damaged kidneys. Normally, the intake of protein can be 0.8g/kg per day. In addition, they can eat some high-quality foods, such as, lean meat, fish, milk, egg white, etc. However, as the illness condition varies, the specific amount should be different. If you are interested in this, please consult with our online doctor directly.
In stage 3 kidney disease, high blood pressure and swelling can be very common. And eating too much salt can increase the risk of presenting the above symptoms, therefore, foods like processed products, salty foods, etc should be restricted.
Intake of potassium foods
In normal case, healthy kidneys can maintain the balance of water and electrolytes. However, due to kidney damage, high-potassium level is more likely to occur. If left uncontrolled, it may lead to irregular heartbeat or even heart failure, which can be life-threatening. So, foods abundant in potassium should be limited, such as, orange, banana, kiwi fruit, potato, tomato, spinach and so on.
As the disorder progresses, bone disorders may appear, which is related to high phosphorus level. Thereby, foods loaded in phosphorus are not suggested, for example, dairy products, nuts, beans, cocoa, cold drinks and so on.
