    Why patients with CKD need a low protein diet

    When patients are diagnosed with CKD,their doctors will usually suggest that they have a low protein diet. But almost patients do not know why should they do that and what the advantages are about the diet. Here is a simple explanation that may can help you.

    CKD is caused by various reasons,such as infections,poor environment or overwork,etc. It is a relatively benign disease or a common clinical pathological process with a slow development. However,if the patients do not take the timely and effective treatments,the disease may worsen into chronic renal insufficiency,renal failure,even uremia. Due to the chronicity and complexity, before the obvious symptoms,patients usually can not feel uncomfortable except the professional examinations. However,some clues may occur in early stage,such as edema,high blood pressure and anemia,etc.Besides,proteinuria is a important symptoms among all these symptoms.

    Proteinuria refers to that the urine contains protein and is usually characterized by the bubble in urine. It is the classical symptom of CKD and the causes of proteinuria is closely related to the barrier function of glomerulus. The leakage of protein signifies that the glomerulus has been damaged.So patients may have doubts that since the leakage of protein has appeared,why doctors suggested they to take a low protein diet?

    Actually,patients do need protein supplements. However,the intake of protein should be limited.The human body can provide enough plant protein,but the animal protein must come from food.So offering the high quality protein rather than the lots of protein.Such as lean meet,milk,fish,and so on.

    For patients with CKD,a healthy diet is beneficial to control their disease condition.
