Chronic kidney disease stage 4 means glomerular filtration rate is less 30%, which kidney function has damaged serious, thus accumulates many toxins and excessive water in the patients’ body. It is important for patients to treat the disease with proper treatment. At the same time, diet also can help the diseases recovery in some degree. So, what diet should eat for chronic kidney disease stage 4 patients?

There are some diet principles for kidney failure patients:

First, take low-salt diet.

Salt is a substance to provide energy for human body. However, it needs to be taken certain amount. As we all know, nearly all kidney failure patients have high blood pressure and edema, which caused by excess intake of salt. Therefore, low-salt diet can help patients control their blood pressure and edema condition. It is because low salt diet is helpful to ease fluid and sodium retention.

Second, take low-protein diet.

Protein is essential nutrition for our body, while, it also produces some waste substances, which accumulates in blood and kidney intrinsic cells. Kidneys are responsible for discharging from these waste substances. So, when kidneys are impaired, the kidney function will be reduced, so that extra protein will increase the burden on kidneys. Therefore, kidney failure patients should take low –protein diet in daily life. In addition, high –quality protein is recommended for kidney failure patients.

Third, take low-potassium diet.

In the late stage kidney disease, kidneys can not filter out potassium efficiently. Meanwhile, most potassium comes from foods what we eat. Moreover, high potassium can lead to heart and bone diseases. So, patients with kidney failure should limit the intake of high-potassium food, including banana, watermelon, lemon, orange and so on.

Fourth, take low-phosphorus diet.

Extra phosphorus also builds up on the human body easily, resulting in low calcium level, skin itching and bone diseases. If you are tested out high phosphorus level, you should avoid high-phosphorus foods such as animal giblets and mushroom.

Of course, here we can not give you some personalized advices, because patients’ condition differs from person to person. If you want to know more detailed diet suggestion, please feel free to leave message to us online.
