Christmas is coming. Almost every one in the world is celebrating it through dressing gorgeously and eating heartily. However, can people with kidney disease eat like other health people do during Christmas?
In fact, there are many restrictions on their diets because patients with kidney disease experience many symptoms and have a higher risk to develop cardiovascular diseases than those without kidney problems. Therefore, keeping a balanced diet contributes a lot to slow down the kidney disease. The followings are the renal experts from Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital recommend the health diets.
Fruits and vegetables
Generally speaking, eating more fruits and vegetables will have many benefits for patients with kidney disease, but, if you are suffering from kidney disease, make sure the fruits and vegetables you eat are low in potassium. The recommended fruits are grapes, cranberries and blueberries. And the recommend vegetables are onions, beets, string beans and fennel.
Low protein diet
Protein is essential for repair of our body parts, and it comes from the food you eat. It will be produced into a waste product called urea and creatinine through the kidneys. Excess protein intake will increase the workload of the kidneys and with the decreasing kidney function, urea and creatinine will build up in the bloodstream and may cause loss of appetite. On this regard, during Christmas, kidney disease patients should limit the consumption of turkey or even keep away from it.
If you are at early stage of kidney disease, you can take fluid as you need, as your kidney function declines, you will need to take into account how much you drink. You should follow the principle strictly during Christmas, otherwise, you will lead to serious condition. In addition, you also should get rid of alcohol as much as possible.
