The stage 4 chronic kidney disease diet goals should help minimize symptoms and help you maintain adequate nutrient intake to prevent weight loss and malnutrition. Firstly, we will talk about stage 4 chronic kidney disease diet from protein, potassium, sodium and fluid.
Stage 4 chronic kidney disease-protein
a protein intake of 0.6 grams per kg of body weight may be beneficial when GFR drops below 25, or approximately 25 percent remaining kidney function. Half of your protein should come from high-quality sources that provide all the essential amino acids (eggs, milk, poultry, seafood, red meats or soy).
Stage 4 chronic kidney disease diet-potassium
Potassium restriction may or may not be required in stage 4 chronic kidney disease. If lab tests show potassium is too high, limit intake of high-potassium foods, and avoid foods with added potassium. Your meal plan may limit your daily servings of fruit, vegetables and milk. Some high-potassium foods to limit or avoid include: bananas, dried fruit, legumes, potatoes, yogurt, oranges, tomato products, etc.
Stage 4 chronic kidney disease diet-sodium
A low-sodium diet may be prescribed to help treat fluid retention and control thirst if patients are on a fluid intake limit. 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.
Stage 4 chronic kidney disease diet-fluid
If patients start to retain in stage 4 chronic kidney disease, they may need to limit the amount of liquids they consume. Once patients begin to take dialysis treatment, the requirements to fluid intake will be different.
