Nutrition Tips for Diabetes of Kidney Disease(Diabetic Nephropathy) Patients
Protein: Long-term high-protein diet can aggravate the high-filtration state of kidney, and increase the production and retention of the toxic nitrogen metabolites in the body, which damages our kidney functions further. We recommend that Diabetic Nephropathy patients limit the intake of protein moderately.
Amino acid: Take in necessary amino acids as much as possible. Patients can take ketosteril tablet as substitute for some necessary amino acids as well.
Energy: Diabetic Nephropathy patients should have sufficient calorie supply while on low-protein diet. The standard is 30-35 kilocalorie per kilogram. Patients can choose staple foods with high calories but low protein content, like potato, sweet potato, pumpkin, Chinese yam.
Fat: Diabetic Nephropathy patients should keep low-fat intake. Oliver oil and peanut oil have abundant unsaturated fatty acids, and can be their energy source.
Salt: Advanced kidney diseases tend to cause high blood pressure, with symptoms such as edema and decreasing urine volume. Limiting the intake of salt can deter the progression of complications related to kidney diseases. However, if patients also have vomit and diarrhea, they should adjust the intake quantity of salt according to their specific conditions.
Water: Diabetic Nephropathy patients should drink water based on their specific conditions, but first and foremost, patients should know the water content of their diet.
Potassium: As the kidney’s ability of excreting potassium decreases, hyperkalemia poses a danger or even threatens lives. For this reason, patients should limit the intake of high-potassium foods with the criterion below 1500 to 2000 milligrams everyday. Vegetables like pumpkin, white gourd, bottle gourd, and fruits like apple, pear, pineapple, watermelon, grape all have low potassium content. At the same time, avoid concentrated juice. However, when Diabetic Nephropathy patients have hypokalemia, they should have more foods with high potassium like spinach, rape, kelp, banana and peaches. Calcium and Phosphorus: When the kidney is damaged, the amount of excreted phosphorus would decrease, resulting to rising seriuminorganicphosphorus. At the same time, kidney’s ability to synthetize vitamin D3 drops, influencing the absortion of calcium. When the concentration of calsium in blood falls, osteoporosis is likely to happen. So, Diabetic Nephropathy patients’ diet should incorporate more calsium and as little of phosphorus as possible.
