    Protein Intake for Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease Patients

    Protein Intake for Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease PatientsProtein can be tricky for people with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Without protein, our bodies would be unable to heal injury, stop bleeding or fight infection. Even though, patients are often faced with the dilemma of having to limit protein intake. Here we will talk about the topic: “Protein Intake for Stage 3 CKD”.

    Protein intake in stage 3 chronic kidney disease has been discussed frequently by patients. Indeed, in order to reduce the damaged kidney’s burden, usually, patients are suggested to have a low protein diet. But patients do not know how much protein they can take daily. Please hold on, some general introduction can be your reference.

    If you’re in stages 1, 2, or 3, your protein intake may be limited to 12 to15 percent of your calorie intake each day. This is the same level recommended by the Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) for a healthy diet for normal adults. If you’re in stage 4 of CKD, your dietitian may advise you to reduce protein to 10 percent of daily calorie intake. However, when your illness disease progressed into Stage 5 CKD or Kidney Failure, the condition will be different. In the stage, dialysis will be recommended to you, so as to help the damaged kidneys’ work. Dialysis removes protein waste from the blood and a low protein diet is no longer needed. Unfortunately, some amino acids are removed during dialysis. A higher protein intake is needed to replace lost protein.

    Besides, to make sure you’re getting the right amount of protein for your condition, first speak with your renal dietitian to get specific guidelines regarding your protein intake. This number will depend on your CKD stage, lab results, body size and other health conditions. If you’re prescribed a low protein diet, your portions of protein containing foods will be smaller than usual. For the average size person, meat, poultry or fish is limited to about 4 to 6 ounces per day. Hence, to get the individualized dosage, you’d better contact your doctor or our Online Doctor.
