    When you have stage 4 chronic kidney disease (CKD), your diet goals should help minimize symptoms and help you maintain adequate nutrient intake to prevent weight loss and malnutrition. Since the illness condition is very different from person to person, there is no specific food what they can eat or not. But there are still several general dietary tips which can as your dietary reference.

    A low-protein diet

    The low-protein diet is thought to have a protective effect on the kidneys. Because eating too much protein will increase the kidney’s burden and cause further kidney damage. The Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiatives Nutrition Guidelines suggests that a protein intake of 0.6g per kg of body weight may be beneficial when glomerular filtration rate (GFR) drops below 25. However, low protein intake may cause malnutrition, therefore, high quality sources that provide all the essential amino acids.

    Phosphorus intake

    Due to decreased kidney function, phosphorus isn’t removed from your body efficiently and can build up in the blood. In this case, calcium is not absorbed well from your food, leading to low blood levels. Nephrologist suggest that stage 4 CKD diet may include a phosphorus restriction of 800-1,000mg daily.

    Sodium intake

    The sodium recommendation for stage 4 CKD is 1,000-4,000 mg/day based on fluid balance, blood pressure and other diseases that may affect sodium requirements.

    Fluid intake

    If you start to retain fluid in stage 4 CKD, you may need to limit the amount of liquids you consume. Signs of fluid retention include swelling in the feet, hands and face; sudden weight gain; shortness of breath; and high blood pressure. These symptoms may indicate decreased urine output as kidney function declines.
