During the treatment and rehabilitation of renal insufficiency, the regulation of diet helps patients with the recovery of the body, has a more significant role in adjuvant therapy.
Kidney is an important organ in the human body, for patients with renal insufficiency diet should have a reasonable protein intake. Metabolites in the body mainly come from the protein components of the diet, so in order to reduce the burden of the remaining kidney, protein intake must be adapted to the excretion capacity of the kidneys. After excretion of the kidney drugs may also damage the kidneys, such as gentamicin, neomycin, streptomycin, patients should try to avoid unauthorized use of drugs, so as not to damage the kidneys.
Regulating diet therapy, on the adjustment, because the patient and patient differences between inpiduals, the disease is not the same, such as: salt intake in patients with renal insufficiency should be as the condition may be, with high blood pressure, edema were advised to use low salt Diet, 2 grams of salt daily. Another example is when the serum creatinine is 170-440 micromol / L, the protein is 0.6 grams per kilogram of body weight per day is appropriate, a large number of proteinuria, loss of 1 gram of urine protein, can be an additional 1.5 grams of protein. When serum creatinine exceeds 440 micromol / l, protein intake should be further reduced to a total daily dose of not more than 30 grams.
In short, the regulation of diet can be helpful in the treatment of renal insufficiency, but patients vary greatly between inpiduals, different conditions, the specific dietary regulation should be under the guidance of a physician, according to the patient's condition.
