Can You Eat Pasta on a Renal Diet?

If you have chronic kidney disease, you may be wondering if you can still enjoy your favorite pasta and noodle dishes while still maintaining your dietary restrictions.

It's hard to give you exact details for the nutritional value of pasta, since different kinds and brands will vary.

Stick with white versions of pasta in your meals. Some whole grain varieties produce wastes in the body that are very difficult for those with chronic kidney disease to process.

Watch out for sodium content. It's been said many times on this blog that sodium is NOT good for the kidneys.

Stay away from pasta with added protein. Some brands offer an “Added Protein” option for their pasta products.

Eat pasta in moderation. With your CKD renal diet, moderation is always key.
