Kidneys are life-sustaining organs located in our lower body backs (around the ribcage area) that are responsible for filtering out the toxins and junk out of our bloodstream through the urine. To preserve the balance in our systems, kidneys help regulate salts and minerals circulating in our bodies, such as sodium, phosphorus, and potassium. Our kidneys also release hormonal compounds that help regulate blood pressure, build new red blood cells, and maintain the health of bones and connective tissue.
A renal diet means eating with an emphasis on promoting the kidney’s health. It is recommended for anyone who is suffering from renal disease to reduce the progression and complications of that disease, such as electrolyte imbalance, anemia, heart disease, etc. It includes restrictions on certain micronutrients such as sodium, potassium, phosphorus, proteins, and input of fluids. A person may need to limit their consumption of vegetables, fruits, grains, and red meat. There is great importance given to what type of protein should be eaten.
Different people experience different types of renal diseases, and according to their condition, they’ll need to change their diet. Some people only limit salt in their diet, and some people need to focus more on their potassium intake. You may need to discuss this with a doctor or a qualified dietitian so you can get the best possible outcome from the diet. A renal diet is a medical treatment measure that has been followed for over three decades to stop the progression of renal disease. The vast majority of doctors and hospitals advise their patients to follow a renal diet program for this purpose.
Along with certain prescribed medications and lifestyle changes, renal disease has been proven to be a valuable weapon against the need for hemodialysis.
Why do You Need Renal Diet?
Renal typically based on certain foods that are low in sodium, potassium, and phosphorus, which are minerals that are known to help build up fluid in the system. When you have renal disease, though, these fluids cannot be easily expelled by your kidneys through the urine, and so you must limit their consumption so that there is no risk of fluid buildup and worsening of the disease.
Renal diet, in general, decreases the likelihood of renal disorder progression through the following ways:
Minimizes risky fluid buildup from high levels of minerals, as the kidneys cannot process excessive amounts on their own.
Encourages the consumption of high-quality protein while limiting the amount of bad protein that could be damaging to the kidneys.
Helps keep the minerals, electrolytes, and salts in our system balanced partially replacing your kidneys function when they can’t fully work on their own.
A renal diet is especially useful during stages 1-3 as it is mainly used as a preventive measure rather than an actual treatment for patients in more advanced renal disease stages. However, if you follow the diet and a healthy lifestyle, there is a very high chance to avoid dialysis and live a quality life.
