A Healthy Diet is Good for Your Kidneys
Renal Failure, just those two words are enough to strike fear in your heart when hearing them from your doctor. Your kidneys aren't working like they used to, or not at all. We need our kidneys…at least one of them. They are essential for removing waste from the food we eat, remove drugs from our system, and balance fluids in our bodies. There are many things that can occur to cause the kidneys to function properly or cease to function completely. Following a good renal diet can mean the difference between healing and chronic renal failure. Habits need to change and a lifelong commitment to eating in a healthy manner needs to be adopted.
Diet and the Kidneys
If your kidneys aren't working properly due to conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, or the inherited polycystic kidney disease, you will need to change the way you eat. Yes, this will be one of those life style changes that are vital to your health. So, what are some of the changes that need to be made? The big ones are avoiding potassium and/or phosphorus rich foods. The following fruits and veggies can help your kidneys, or at least make their job easier.
- Cranberries – These are a native to North America and are great for assisting in healing a urinary tract infection.
- Blueberries – This snacking fruit is great for kidney function. Add these to your diet as often as you can! They are low in potassium and phosphorus.
- Red Bell Peppers – These beautiful peppers are low in potassium and pack a punch of flavor to your dish. They are full of great vitamins such as A, C, B6 and folic acid!
- Strawberries – They never last long at my house! They are high in fiber and are an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese.
- Onions – A wonderful, flavorful addition, chock full of chromium which helps to metabolize fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. The best part is they are low in potassium, making them a friend to our kidneys!
As you learn which foods are good for your renal diet and which ones are bad, remember to eat quality high protein foods. What proteins are considered high quality and are allowable when adapting to a healthier way of eating? Listed below are a few that are great choices. Take care that you eat the right amount of protein. Too much or too little can wreak havoc on your body. You don't want to become malnourished by not getting enough, nor do you want to make your kidneys worse.
- Lean cuts of meat
- Egg whites
Phasing out Salty Foods
Salt and kidney failure just don't mix. So how do you go about adjusting your sodium intake without losing the pleasure of great tasting foods? Here are some great tips on what to cut back on and how to still enjoy eating!
- Reduce the amount of table salt that you use. Replace it with fresh herbs and spices.
- Use low sodium substitutes for regular sodium items, such as condiments, cheeses, and dressings.
- Know what the daily recommended allowance for sodium is and if your doctor wants you to have a lower intake amount.
- If you must have a sandwich, replace pickles with fresh veggies.
- Choosing fresh food rather than the processed form will always be your lower sodium choice.
- Look into a Mediterranean diet.
