A healthy diet for dialysis patients (part1)

When chronic kidney disease requires dialysis, the diet will play an important role in a patient’s care and rehabilitation. For people suffering from kidney disease, a balanced diet is necessary because the kidneys will not be able to excrete waste completely. A dialysis patient needs to get the right amount of protein, calories, fluids, vitamins, and minerals through their diet every day.

For this purpose, you must:

– Eat enough healthy food daily.

– You should not miss any dialysis sessions.

– Be physically active enough.

A dialysis patient needs more protein than a normal person does because a lack of protein and calories in a dialysis patient will eventually lead to protein malnutrition. To achieve the right result, a dialysis patient must carefully control his diet. Your doctor and counselor will help you achieve the right diet plan.

Get the right amount of calories

Food gives us energy. Getting the right amount of energy (calories) is essential for the health of the body and helping it to use protein and build body tissues and muscles.

The need for energy varies from person to person and depends on age, gender, body size, level of physical activity, and medical condition. People who want to gain weight need more energy, and on the other hand, people who want to lose weight need to reduce the amount of energy they get from their diet.

Adequate protein

Protein is essential for building and repairing muscles as well as a person’s daily needs. During dialysis, the body’s protein decreases, so dialysis people need more protein than normal people do.

Consuming the right amount of protein in dialysis patients will help them prevent weight loss, muscle wasting, reduce the body’s ability to fight infections, and consequently malnutrition.

Protein can be divided into high quality and low quality, which for dialysis people, a diet containing high-quality protein such as meat, poultry, fish, and egg whites is very important. The right amount of protein is very important for dialysis patients. Protein contains phosphate, so dialysis patients must take their phosphate supplement with all their meals.
