Best Diet Plan for Kidney Failure Patients and Avoid Dialysis Best Diet Plan for Kidney Failure Patients and Avoid Dialysis Presentation Transcript

  • OUR KIDNEYS  The kidneys are bean-shaped organs, each about the size of a fist.  They are located near the middle of the back, just below the rib cage, one on each side of the spine.  The kidneys are sophisticated reprocessing machines.
  • HOW DO KIDNEYS FUNCTION Every day, a person's kidneys process about 200 quarts of blood to sift out about 2 quarts of waste products and extra water. The wastes and extra water become urine, which flows to the bladder through tubes called ureters. The bladder stores urine until releasing it through urination. The actual removal of wastes occurs in tiny units inside the kidneys called nephrons.
  •  Kidney failure is a medical condition in which the kidneys fail to adequately filter waste products from the blood.  In renal failure, there may be problems with increased fluid in the body (leading to swelling), increased acid levels, raised level of potassium, decreased levels of calcium, increased levels of phosphate, and in later stages anaemia. WHAT IS KIDNEY FAILURE ?
  • Acute renal failure is a rapidly progressive loss of kidney function generally characterized by oliguria (decreased urine production). WHAT ARE THE STAGES OF KIDNEY FAILURE ?
  • Chronic kidney disease (CKD) can also develop slowly and, initially, show few symptoms.CKD can be the long term consequence of irreversible acute disease or part of a disease progression. ESRD - This is End stage of kidney failure when kidney stops functioning completely.
  •  Diet plays an important role in the management of kidney failure because foods and beverages contain electrolytes and nutrients that must be kept in balance by the kidneys.  The special diet for kidney failure patients may involve restricting fluids, sodium, potassium, phosphorus and protein. ROLE OF DIET IN KIDNEY FAILURE
  •  Fluid restriction may be necessary to relieve these symptoms and restore fluid levels to normal.  In addition to restricting beverages, people on fluid restriction must also limit their intake of soup, gelatin, ice cream, coffee creamer, pudding, yogurt, custard and Popsicles.  Fluid restriction is based on an individual's kidney function, weight changes and presence of swelling and puffiness. HOW FLUID RESTRICTION IS COMPONENT OF DIET IN KIDNEY FAILURE?
  •  Sodium can also contribute to fluid retention, which can be a problem for people with kidney failure.  Limit consumption of high-sodium foods such as bouillon cubes, luncheon meats, bacon, potato chips, table salt, salted nuts, cheese, canned soups, frozen meals and canned vegetables. HOW RESTRICTING SODIUM IS BENEFICIAL FOR DIET IN KIDNEY FAILURE ?
  •  Kidney dysfunction can cause potassium levels to become too high, which can cause the heart to stop or beat irregularly  Avoid consumption of foods that are high in potassium, including bananas, oranges, chocolate, broccoli, raisins, apricots, cantaloupe, tomatoes, coffee, prunes, bran products, mushrooms and greens. HOW RESTRICTING POTASSIUM IS BENEFICIAL FOR DIET IN KIDNEY FAILURE ?
  •  Phosphorus works with calcium to keep the bones strong. It is also needed for normal muscle function, healthy teeth and normal nerve function.  Low phosphorus alternatives are hard candies, zucchini, sherbet, broccoli, non- dairy milk substitutes & non-cola soft drinks. HOW RESTRICTING PHOSPHORUS IS BENEFICIAL FOR DIET IN KIDNEY FAILURE ?
  •  If urea levels are high, protein restriction may be necessary to decrease the workload of the kidneys and restore urea levels to normal.  Avoid high-protein foods such as milk products, meat, eggs and poultry. HOW RESTRICTING PROTEIN BENEFICIAL FOR DIET IN KIDNEY FAILURE ?
  • WHAT ARE OTHER FOOD ITEMS TO BE RESTRICTED ? Other foods you may be instructed to limit or avoid are sweets and salty foods such as the following: Candy (candy bars, hard candy, chocolate, jelly beans, gum drops) Meat tenderizer Regular sugar Molasses Syrup (maple, chocolate) Ice cream Honey Canned foods
