Kidney Failure Diet – What Is It?

Kidneys in the human body perform several functions, the most important being the removal of wastes and excess water from the blood.

When one of your kidneys are damaged or start to ‘fail’ due to various illnesses or consequent to trauma or injuries, the second one can take over the functions and work well for a long time.

Planning a patient's meals using a kidney failure diet planhelps to limit the frequency and duration for which the patient has to undergo dialysis, and is preventive in nature.

A Registered Dietitian will recommend a personalized diet depending on the patient’s medical history, results of examinations and analyses on blood and urine etc.

For instance, patients with history of diabetes or weight problems may need less carbohydrates and more fruits, vegetables, breads and whole grain foods for the kidney failure diet.
