How the Renal Diet Helps

The kidneys play an important role in the body – it’s the body’s filter. All the food, drinks and medicine that we consume get filtered by the kidneys. Kidney disease diminishes this filtering function, causing waste to build up in the blood.
A renal diet – also known as the “kidney diet” or “dialysis diet” – is designed to limit specific nutrients like sodium, protein, potassium and phosphorus. This helps prevent waste from building up in the blood, and the diet offers numerous benefits, including:  

  • Improved kidney function
  • Slowed progression of kidney failure
  • Reduced hypertension
  • Diabetes management

Renal Diets: What You Can Eat

A healthy diet can reverse or slow the effects of chronic kidney diseases. Yet, these dietary changes require lifelong commitment; you’ll need to commit to eating the right foods for long-term results.
So what foods are great for the renal diet? Many fruits, vegetables and lean proteins are accepted by most renal diet plans. A few foods that are great include:

  • 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 add a pop of flavor to any dish. Red peppers are also full of great vitamins including 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 to any dish, onions are 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!

Nutrients You Should Watch

Fortunately, the renal diet doesn’t require drastic changes – you just need to limit several key nutrients. Your doctor or dietician can help you best determine which nutrients you need to limit.
The most commonly limited nutrients on the renal diet include: 

Sodium

Too much salt can cause a number of problems, including swelling and hypertension. For people suffering from kidney disorders, sodium is particularly troublesome. It can build up in the blood – a condition called hypernatremia. The best way to reduce sodium: Avoid highly processed, fast foods.

Potassium

Reduced renal function can cause dangerous levels of potassium to build up in the blood. That's why people with kidney disorders should try to avoid or limit foods high in potassium, like avocados, bananas and coconut.

Phosphorus

A hazardous condition called hyperphosphatemia can occur when phosphorus levels in the blood rise abnormally. Many dialysis and CKD patients typically limit the nutrient, which can be found in nuts, beans, meats, and other high-protein foods.

Protein

With CKD and other kidney disorders, you'll want to stick to high-quality proteins. This includes foods like chicken, egg whites, beef and lean cuts of meat. But the key is the amount. Too much protein can be problematic. Your doctor or dietician can help you find the right amount of protein for your diet.
