Food For Sufferers Of Kidney Disease?
my mama keratin is high 17.4 and ureum ny 200, but the body condition is still fit, not tight and also not swollen, so the doctor has not suggested for HD, currently in the process of drug therapy and seen its development within 2 weeks. So, my question is, what foods are suitable for people with kidney disease? My mother’s blood pressure is not high, only 90/60, there is cholesterol and also gout but not too high.
Hello Cici, thank you for the question.
Of course, we cannot know the exact diagnosis your doctor gave you. However, based on high lab creatinine and urea results, it is likely that your mother has chronic kidney failure (CRF). GGK has several stages, from mild to severe. In chronic renal failure, the function of filtering blood by the kidneys has been severely disrupted, so that the disposal of toxic metabolic waste is inhibited. This results in the toxin being stored in the blood and circulating in the organs. In addition, the function of urine formation is also disrupted, so that excess water in the body cannot be excreted through urine. As a result, water collects in the tissues, causing tightness, swelling, ascites, and so on.
The types of food and drinks of people with CRF must be very, very carefully considered. We cannot give definitive advice, because the one who understands your mother's condition correctly is the doctor in charge. In general, several things must be considered:
Amount of fluids allowed to be consumed per 24 hours. Each stage of chronic renal failure has a certain volume of fluid consumption. Liquids include all kinds of liquids, for example water, soup, juice, soup, water in fruit. Then your mother cannot carelessly eat runny foods like soup or porridge. Fruit selection must also be considered. Watery fruits such as cucumbers, tomatoes, watermelons, melons, should be avoided.
Types of foods high in protein. The protein consumed cannot be too high or too low. That is why you should consult with a doctor to design a safe diet.
The amount of salt and sugar in food and drinks.
Potassium levels in food or fruit.
Types of drinks that stimulate the kidneys work to produce urine, such as coffee and tea. As much as possible avoided.
As you can see, food choices and drinks for CRF are limited. Consult properly in detail with your doctor to determine eating and drinking patterns. Do not hesitate to ask the doctor often.
Thus information from me, may be useful. Regards.
