    Diet for Stage 3 Chronic Kidney DiseaseThere is no doubt that healthy diet can help slow down the progression of condition. And in general, suggestions on diet is a common topic kidney disease patients care about. Then what is the diet for stage 3 chronic kidney disease?

    For patients with stage 3 chronic kidney disease, probably the most well known of all renal dietary guidelines, is to make sure the consumption of protein, potassium, phosphorus and sodium are within normal healthy limits. Unfortunately ‘normal’ healthy limits between individuals can vary greatly, which depends on the stage of kidney disease and patients’ blood test results. Now we will see the diet for stage 3 chronic kidney disease from calculating the intake of potassium, phosphorus, protein and sodium.

    -Potassium recommendations: kidney disease stages 3 to 4 (eGFR of 20 to 60): 2 to 4g a day;

    -Phosphorus recommendations: kidney disease stages 1 to 4 (eGFR of 25 to 90+): up to 1000mg a day (up to 1200mg a day for those that exceed 90 kilos (200+pounds));

    -Protein recommendations: kidney disease stages 3 to 4 (eGFR of 20 to 60): 0.6 to 0.8 gram per kilo of body weight (e.g. 36 to 48 grams for a 60 kg (130 lb) individual);

    -Sodium recommendations: kidney disease stages 1 to 4 (eGFR of 25 to 90+): 1 to 3.5g a day.

    However, these figures are a ‘general rule’, and therefore subject to change depending on patients’ requirements and blood work. This means that may consume more, or need to consume less, depending on current situation and blood test results. As soon as patients commence dialysis, protein intake will need to be increased.
