KIDNEY DIALYSIS AND DIET

This article is written for people suffering from Kidney related disorders. It contains vital information necessary for patients whose creatinine levels in blood is more or undergoing dialysis, as well as diet charts which could be used daily to ensure proper functioning of the Kidney and overall health.

1. THE KIDNEYS

Kidneys are bean shaped organs which are roughly the size of our fist. They lie below our rib cage on each side of the spine. A kidney has about one million tiny filters. They are responsible for purifying the blood which in turn keeps the body functioning properly. Kidneys with a disease do not remove waste out of the body. Wastes start to build up in the body.

2. IMPORTANT FUNCTIONS OF KIDNEYS
    • To filter and excrete waste from the blood in the form of urine
    • Produce hormones that regulate blood pressure
    • Conserve electrolytes like – Salt, Water and Minerals
    • Regulate Sodium and Potassium levels in the blood
    • Produce hormones that make red blood cells
    • Maintain a strong skeletal system
    • Balance the blood pH level
3. GENERAL CAUSES OF KIDNEY FAILURE
a. ACUTE KIDNEY FAILURE
    • Reaction to allergens or toxic substances
    • Obstructed Urine Flow
    • Autoimmune attack
    • Insufficient blood supply to kidneys
b. CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE
    • Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes
    • Long term autoimmune attack on kidneys
    • High Blood Pressure
    • Prolonged urinary tract obstruction
    • Glomerulonephritis
    • Polycystic Kidney disease
4. WHAT DOES “WASTE IN BLOOD” MEAN?

When Kidneys are affected by a disease, it begins to dysfunction. Hence, waste starts to accumulate in the body. Waste comes from the food we eat. Our food mostly contains Carbohydrates, Proteins and Fats. The body digests the food. The nutrients from the digested food are absorbed by the blood and is carried to the rest of the body. After each cell uses the food, the waste is put back into the blood. This waste is then carried by the blood to the Kidney for filtration which results in the production of urine. When the kidneys are diseased, the waste is not filtered and builds up in the body. Urine contains Nitrogenous wastes, Electrolytes and Pigments which originates from the food, bile components and drugs consumed. Urine is 95% water with the rest being a combination of both organic and inorganic components like:

    • Urea
    • Uric Acid
    • Creatinine
    • Ammonia
    • Amino Acids
    • Allantoin
    • Sodium
    • Potassium
    • Chlorides
    • Phosphates
    • Sulphates
    • Oxalates
    • Minerals
    • Enzymes
    • Hormones
    • Vitamins
5. KIDNEY HEALTH
    • Kidney failures can be dangerous and life threatening, it is important to take good care of the body in order to prevent harming the Kidney
    • People who are born into families with a history of Kidney problems are more at risk of suffering
    • Not urinating for an extended period can lead to Kidney stones and sometimes to Kidney Failure
    • Drinking enough water is important for a smooth functioning of the Kidney, however, consuming water excessively could cause harm as it increases the load on the organ
    • The color of the urine shows whether the water level in the body is at a normal level
    • Consumption of animal proteins, especially red meat boosts the metabolic load on the Kidney
    • Consumption of large amounts of salt leads to hypertension and kidney damage
    • Excessive amounts of alcohol consumption can severely damage the Kidney. Also, beer deposits uric acid that obstructs the renal tubules
    • Pain killers also damage the Kidney
    • Lack of nutrients like Magnesium decreases the functioning of the Kidney
    • Being obese, eating an unhealthy diet, diabetes, heart diseases, anemia, hypertension, bone metabolism problems are all risk factors which lead to Kidney failure.

* (GRF – Glomerular Filter)

9. DIALYSIS

The kidneys of a healthy person filter up to 1500 liters of blood every day. It is not possible for a person to live if the waste products are not removed by the kidneys. The filtering occurs in tiny units called – Nephrons in the Kidney. When the Nephrons are damaged, the Kidney eventually fails. Dialysis is a mechanical process by which the blood is cleansed by exchanging fluids and electrolytes. Dialysis is recommended when the kidney function drops to 15% or lesser.

There are two types of dialysis – Peritoneal Dialysis and Hemodialysis
    1. PERITONEAL DIALYSIS

      Peritoneal Dialysis involves a natural filter that contains a special fluid which is injected into the body lining of the belly that pulls the wastes and extra fluids from the body. The fluid is then drained away. This procedure can be performed at home.

    2. HEMODIALYSIS
    3. No matter how severely damaged the kidney is, it is entirely possible to live a fulfilling life if a proper medical attention and a healthy diet is maintained along with a little change in the lifestyle.

      Kidney Patients wonder quite often whether their Kidney will heal. The chances depend on the type of kidney failure – Acute or Chronic. Acute kidney failure is often temporary and may have been a result of sudden stress and in many cases is possible to make a complete recovery.

      However, Chronic Kidney failures generally do not heal and is mostly irreversible.

      10. SIDE EFFECTS OF KIDNEY HEMODIALYSIS

      11. DIET CHART FOR KIDNEY PATIENTS

      A. WHY DIET?

      Maintaining a strict diet plays a vital role for people suffering from any types of Kidney Diseases. A diet chart must be made according to the stage of the Kidney Problem, clinical parameters and to suit the body type. A diet regime that might suit a body type might not be suitable for all. Following a strict diet makes the dialysis treatment more effective and reduces the complications associated with dialysis and the disease. Dialysis can replace some key functions of the Kidney, but not all. What a person eats or drinks while on dialysis can make a lot of difference to a body, because an improper diet puts extra strain and burden on the kidney to aggravate its functions.Dialysis bolsters the Kidney Function and delays the total kidney failure. A controlled diet reduces the waste build up in the body, and if all the clinical parameters are in the normal range, then all types of food can be consumed. It is important to limit the intake of fluids, potassium, phosphorous and sodium.

      Important Note:

      For Kidney Patients – Salts, Oils and Fats can prove to be very poisonous thus, the daily consumption should be limited to one teaspoon per day. Other foods to specifically avoid are – Aerated Drinks, Tender Coconut, Fruit Juices, Banana, Arhar Dal (Pigeon Pea) and All millets like – Ragi, Brown Rice, Jowar, Bajra, Oats, Barley, etc. (Millets have a layer of coating on them rich in Potassium and Phosphorous). Rice is much better than wheat since wheat contains gluten

      B. WHAT DIET?

      If a person undergoing dialysis can urinate, it means that the Kidney is partially working. For example, if 30% of the Kidney is working, it means that it is still capable of filtering the waste. Following a bad diet puts an unnecessary strain on the Kidney. It is important to maintain a strict diet for all people whose Creatinine level is on borderline or high.

      People on dialysis must follow a diet that is low in –

        • Potassium
        • Phosphorous
        • Protein
        • Sodium
        • Fluids

      One can control a buildup of these by avoiding foods that worsen the problem. One should individualize the intake categorically –

            1. POTASSIUM

            Potassium is a mineral found in food. Potassium facilitates the proper functioning of the nerves and muscles. It also plays a vital role in keeping the following parts healthy – Heart, Digestive Function, Muscular Function and the Bones. Abnormal levels of potassium level in the body can be dangerous as it can make heartbeat irregular, eventually leading to a cardiac arrest. It is important to eat foods containing low levels of Potassium. Potassium present in the body can be removed during dialysis, however the buildup of Potassium in between the dialysis sessions can be fatal. Dialysis patients whose potassium levels are normal, should not consume more than 2000 mg of potassium per day. The amount of potassium to take depends on many factors like – how much taking, if on dialysis, how much urine kidneys are making or not, weather taking diuretics and potassium levels in blood.Portion size of the foods is very important. Also, it is important to understand that eating large amount of a food which is low in Potassium might lead to high levels of Potassium entering the body.

            NOTE –

            Processed food use different terminologies for Potassium on the sachets or labels, which must be also avoided like – Potassium Chloride, Potassium Lactate, Potassium Sorbate, etc.

            All vegetable, fruits, juices and dairy products contain Potassium

            High Potassium foods to avoid – Potato

            How to use potatoes if consuming occasionally – Wash, peel, cut and soak for 6 hours or overnight, boil and cook till half done, remove water and put in fresh water and boil again. Cook till fully done, throw away the water and use. Never eat French fries, baked or microwave cooked potato as the potassium in it stays inside.

            2. PHOSPOROUS

            Phosphorous is a mineral found in food. It helps in keeping the bones strong and healthy. As the function of the kidneys decline, the phosphorous levels in blood raises. Large amounts of phosphorous in blood, pull Calcium from the bones and weaken it. It also is responsible for several heart disorders. Phosphorous cannot be completely removed during dialysis, so it is important to avoid foods that are rich in it. Excess buildup of Phosphorous can cause the skin to itch, weaken the bones, joint pain, skin ulcers and heart problems. Taking phosphorous binders to maintain its levels are the only solution available. The binders act like a sponge which soaks up the Phosphorous from the food eaten.

            Amount of phosphorous in blood depends on the kidney status, low kidney function and no dialysis 0.8 to 1.5 mmoI/L. with dialysis 1 to 2 mmoI/L

            Phosphorous is found in almost all foods. All processed foods contain added phosphorous to increase shelf life, texture, flavor, reduce acidity. In meat, it is added to retain the juiciness. Any ingredient list on the label with a suffix or a prefix with …Phos… means it contains phosphorous

            3. PROTEIN

            Protein is used by the body to promote growth, build and repair muscles and other tissues. After the body uses the Protein, it releases nitrogenous waste in the blood called urea. kidneys are the only organ in the body to remove urea. For people on dialysis, the kidney is generally unable to filter urea and it will accumulate in the blood. Large amounts of urea in the blood with lead to itchy skin, no appetite, vomiting and irregular heart beating which might eventually lead to a cardiac arrest. Also, low amounts of urea can lead to muscle cramps. The recommended amount of Protein intake depends on the person’s height and weight. People on dialysis must generally restrict the protein intake anywhere between 170 to 250 grams. During dialysis, a lot of protein is lost, therefore it is necessary to have a moderately high protein diet to maintain the amino acids, hemoglobin levels and muscle wasting. A dialysis diet stresses the importance of protein from sources like Paneer (Cottage Cheese), Tofu (Soya Bean Curd), Boiled Egg Whites and Steamed Fish, as these are easily digestible proteins. The amount of protein in each food varies. By eating too much proteins will make the kidney filters to work harder and this overwork will quickly damage the remaining good or working filters of the kidneys. So, avoid excess protein intake to protect the working kidney filters. To prolong the life of the kidneys, limit protein intake and keep off dialysis.

            For Non-Vegetarians

              • Meat – chicken/ pork/ beef/fish/shrimp/ goat /sheep – 30 grams per day (fish is the best)
              • Egg white – twice a day, one during breakfast another during dinner

            4. SODIUM

            Sodium keeps the blood pressure normal and a balanced amount of water in the body. People on Dialysis must limit the salt intake to 2000 mg as it is help control the blood pressure, swelling of the eyes, ankle and fingers and reduce weight gain. It will also alter the breathing rate and the water content in the lungs. It is recommended to cook food with herbs and spices rather than using crushed salt. Consuming large amount of Salt increases thirst and causes shortness of breath and Edema. Use a pinch of salt while eating instead of while cooking.

          FLUIDS

          Fluids means all liquids – water, buttermilk, soup, tea, coffee, curry, rasam etc. The amount of fluids intake depends on how much the kidneys is making urine. Generally, a dialysis patient can consume 1 liter of fluids per day. Consuming less salt makes the person feel less thirsty. Excess fluid causes high blood pressure, shortness of breath, weakens the heart muscles, causes swelling in legs, hand and feet. Water weight (weight gained between each dialysis treatment) must be maintained between 2 to 2.5 kg.

          Thirst can be controlled by

            • Reducing salt intake
            • Sipping on water mixed with lemon juice
            • Eat a frozen grape, when thirsty
