WHY IS YOUR DIET
IMPORTANT?

As you can read in the section on what the kidneys do in the Patient Education page, the wastes generated in the body through breakdown of muscle tissues and food are excreted by the kidneys. When the kidneys do not function as well as they should, these wastes start building up in the body and can be dangerous. They can also make us feel sick. It is therefore important to restrict the foods that have high amounts of such substances. In this section, we will see which foods we must restrict and why.
If you are getting adequate dialysis as prescribed by your doctor, the restrictions will be minimal. The key is to eat good, healthy food at small intervals. Have small, light meals five to six times a day. Try to introduce variety in your meals. Try something new. You will soon be convinced that food can be tasty despite following your diet plan!
