Diet for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

Diet for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

hello, friends, my name is Dr. Puru Dhawan and in this video, we will talk about diet which will help every kidney patient to control creatinine urea potassium sodium so lets get started diet plays most important part in any kidney treatment 50% of treatment just depends upon diet to understand what kind of diet a kidney patient should take so that a patient can have a non complicated life is very important who can control each and every component of kidney health just by diet now I will give you tips that will help you to control creatinine if we want to control creatinine you can do it by two ways first we can increase the kidney output so that the creatinine is excreted out as urine or we can decrease creatinine production by reducing protein intake only few of us knows that creatinine is waste product of muscle metabolism anything which increases muscle metabolism also increases creatinine in blood like fever exercise weight lifting and protein intake so if a kidney patient want to decrease creatinine one should avoid protein completely all kind of exercise should be avoided and make sure the body temperature remains normal it has been seen that if a kidney patient reduce protein intake level of creatinine decreases rapidly and also the progression of kidney failure slowed why because to digest protein body is unable to excrete excess amount of acid this accumulation of acid causes change of pH of body body becomes more acidic this condition also known as acidosis as this acid damage kidney further so all kidney patients of Sai Sanjivani are advised not to take any protein whenever i say it my patient most of the time the questions are always what we can eat what vegetables i can eat what foods are good for me lots of question now i will answer all of them one by one lets start with vegteables and fruit if we take care of vegetable and fruiut in diet potassium can be managed eaily potassium gives power to muscles when it is in the right amount in the body but when kidney stops working well level of potassium increases this increased level of potassium effects badly on all muscles it produces fatigue as our heart is also made up of muscles increase level of potassium damages heart muscle level above 7 in blood may cause heart attack so to keep potassium in check it is must for every kidney patient to control potassium we advice all kidney patients to consume low potassium fruit and vegetable now i will tell you about low potassium vegetables keep simple rule in mind always avoid rooty and leafy vegetable rooty vegetable like potato sweet potato turnip potato root any vegetable which is grown below the surface of the earth is not advised to a kidney patient only exceptions are onion reddish and carrot now any vegetable which grows as fruit on any plant or creeper like tomatoes peas brinjal okhra bottle gourd snake gourd pumpkin all are allowed but these low potassium vegetables contain potassium its low in comparison to others but its there to further lower the potassium we can leach the vegetable it simple process just fine chop all the low potassium vegetable you wanna eat soak them in luke warm water for next 3-4 hours when we soak vegetable in luke warm water all potassium present in the vegetable comes out in water level of potassium further drops in those vegetables and they become more favorable for a kidney patient now move to fruit in fruits avoid all high potassium fruits and they are banana kiwi dates avocado all dry fruits rest all fruits are allowed but in a fixed proportion you can take an apple grape pineapple oranges watermelon musk melon anyone you want but your quantity for a day is a cup that means whatever food you take it’s quantity should not cross a cup you can take one apple one orange one cup of pineapple one cup of watermelon or one cup of mixed fruits you want but the quantity cant exceed one cup potion helps us to control potassium now lets move to breads a kidney patient take much as bread chappati and rice just avoid rice if you are diabetic why bread is considered more healthy than brown bread or multi grain bread as it contains a lesser amount of potassium in it now let’s move to sodium sodium is needed to be controlled because if sodium increases it causes hypertension and accumulation of fluid in lower limbs so if you facing swelling or edema in body simply avoid sodium and our main source of sodium is salt if a kidney patient avoid all kind of salt not only level of blood pressure comes down swelling in the lower part of the body also disappears if a kidney patient ignores sodium sodium can also be fatal as sodium increases blood pressure and food accumulation which can be dangerous for kidney patients heart so we have controlled creatinine potassium and sodium just by diet which is one of the major concern for all kidney patients as well as for doctors this will help all kidney patients to slow down the progression of kidney failure now imagine what if your own filtration process your own dialysis machine means your own kidney starts filtering better and your kidney failure condition can be reversed that means you may not need any kind of dialysis or transplant no need for A- V fistula this can be done only when we start working on kidneys your kidneys are getting damaged because of high level of diabetes and hypertension we at Sai Sanjivani works on the root cause of kidney failure and reverse the damage to the kidney we call this treatment as kidney function restoration treatment KFRT in short in KFRT our first objective is always to identify the the main culprit for kidney failure in most cases its diabetes or hypertension in some cases we find allopathic drugs like painkillers all painkillers or any kind of antibiotic as a cause of kidney failure once the cause has been identified we know the kind of damage that has been done then kidney function restoration treatment moves accordingly this treatment not only control the cause of kidney failure it also helps kidney to improve kidney function and kidney functions are excretion of waste and excess material from the body like creatinine urea sodium potassium as a body starts excreting them level of creatinine and urea comes down which is easily be recognized as a better urine output better appetite change in creatinine levels urea levels and these changes can be seen within a month once the level are in control now kidney has no pressure to filter them out all cause of kideny failure are in check then kidney starts its healing and within few months natural function of the kidney function of kidney is to restore upto great extent need of dialysis ends and your own dialysis machine starts working all communication of dialysis surgery transplant goes away as you don’t need them now and this is the main objective of Sai Sanjivani to provide you a noncomplicated life with best renal care I hope this video will help all kidney patients to understand how a right diet can help them to control creatinine level how we can slow the progression of the disease how with the help of KFRT we can regain kidney function back if you still have any questions you may ask our doctors on the numbers given below they will guide you all about the kidney failure in kidney function restoration treatment you may visit our website at where small form is given just you have to provide us information like your name age gender problem you are facing the current level of creatinine undergoing dialysis or not how many times you have to go to dialysis you may attach you a medical report like kidney function biopsy report ultrasound once our doctors examine that they will call contact you if you still have a
