    What Vegetables You Can Eat While on Hemodialysis

    2015-01-12 07:38| Font Size A A A

    What Vegetables You Can Eat While on HemodialysisHemodialysis can help the failed kidneys remove extra water and waste products from your blood by running it through a filter. It can partially replace the functions of the kidneys. However, what can eat and what cannot eat may be a confusion for dialysis patients. Here we will have a discussion: what vegetables you can eat while on hemodialysis?

    Typically, the kidneys filter out and excrete excess potassium from the blood. For people with end-stage renal disease, the dialysis machine filters out excess potassium. The amount of potassium you consume in your diet directly affect the amount of potassium in your blood. People on dialysis are asked to follow a strict diet and consume no more than 2 to 4 grams of potassium per day. The amount of potassium you should consume each day depends on the type of dialysis you receive as well as your lab values. A normal serum potassium level is 3.5 to 5.0 mEq/L.

    Most vegetables are high in potassium level like spinach, tomato, spinach, lentils, mushrooms, artichokes which are not suggested to dialysis patients. However, some vegetables in low potassium level are good choices for dialysis patients. Here we will recommend the following vegetables for your reference.

    Raw cabbage, green beans, carrots, endive, Alfalfa sprouts, asparagus, green or wax beans, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, corn, cucumber and so on.

    The mentioned above are available vegetables which are low in potassium. If there is anything that you do not understand, you can talk with our Online Doctors or leave a message below directly.

    In addition that, there are also a number of issues relating to the food you eat that are important to consider. To keep your healthy and strong, eating enough protein is important. And you will asked to cut down salt in your diet. Besides, balancing your fluid intake is also necessary.

    Eating a healthy diet is helpful for improving your kidney function when you are on dialysis. In order to that, you will need to limit the amount of waste that builds up in your blood between treatments. It means that you will have to limit potassium, phosphorus, sodium and liquid in your diet. And you will need more protein than you did before you started dialysis.
