MANAGING CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE AT HOME

September 12, 2018

 

ROUTINES & REMEDIES

Your doctor may recommend a special diet as a part of your treatment for kidney disease. You should ask your doctor for to refer you to a dietitian who will be able to examine your existing diet and propose ways to make your diet easier on your kidneys.

Your dietitian might recommend the following dependent on your situation and general health.

You should make sure to stay clear from products with extra salt. Reduce the amount of sodium you consume daily by avoiding products with additional salt, which includes many convenience foods, like frozen dinners, canned soups and fast foods.

  • Select lower potassium foods. Your dietitian will possibly advise that you choose lower potassium foods for every meal.

  • Limit the total of protein you consume. Your dietitian should guesstimate the suitable number of grams of protein that you need each day and create recommendations based on the given amount.

COPE & PROP-UP

Getting a verdict on chronic kidney disease can be worrying. You might be troubled about what exactly your diagnosis means for your potential health. To help you deal with your feelings, consider trying to:

  • Unite with other people who have kidney disease as well. 

  •  Maintain your standard routine, when possible. 

  •  Remain active a majority of days of the week. With your doctor's recommendation, aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week. This can help you cope with weariness and stress.

  • Confide in a person you trust. 

 

PREVENT

To decrease your risk of developing kidney disease:

  • Follow directions on over-the-counter medications. 

  •  Stay at a healthy weight. 

  •  Avoid smoking. 

  • Manage your medical conditions with your doctor's assistance.
