When kidneys can’t work properly they are not able to filter waste from the blood. Dialysis is an artificial process to help do the function that kidneys perform. Slowly frequency of dialysis keeps on increasing and kidneys become totally dependent on dialysis and whatever little function they were doing, they stop that also.
With Ayurvedic treatment for kidney, failure dialysis can be avoided. If the patient is already undergoing dialysis, then the frequency of dialysis slowly reduces and ultimately stops. The transplant will never be needed.
Stop non- veggie diet- All kidney failure patients are suggested not to take any non-vegie diet, as non-veg diet tends to increase the value of urea, Creatinine.
Egg white especially is suggested that too once In 15 days.
Potassium – This is a rare element that gets elevated in kidney cases. Too much potassium can make your heart beat irregularly or even stop without warning. All green leafy veggies should be boiled in excess amount of water, then the water is drained before the consumption of a kidney patient. The patient has to limit all fruits that contain potassium especially banana, Apricots, and other fruits as well.
A renal failure patient can only have two fruits ie. Apple and papaya. For diabetic nephropathy patients, we have to limit the number of servings as it can also increase diabetes levels. Cranberries, grapes, Pineapples & strawberries can be consumed as well.
Sabudana kheer is advised to all CKD patients. For Diabetic Nephropathy patients, we can add a natural sweetener like stevia leaves powder.
All renal failure patients tend to have low levels of calcium for the same we need to give a calcium-rich diet. Or you can consult your doctor for any supplements
Phosphorous tend to be high for all chronic kidney disease patients so we need to limit phosphorous in the diet as well. Mainly cereals (dals) contain phosphorous which should again be boiled & water drained out before cooking. Meat also contains phosphorous, so we recommend not to eat the same for kidney patients. Increased phosphorous can increase back pain or pain anywhere in the body & increase skin rashes. Also, high levels of phosphorous in the blood can lead to brittle bones.
Say no to dark-colored colas, nuts and sunflower seeds, bran cereals & oatmeal. Peanut butter, cheese, Sardines, Chicken/beef liver, nuts, caramels, Beer & Ice cream are other phosphorous rich foods that a kidney patient needs to avoid.
Uric Acid tends to increase for all kidney failure patients, so in Ayurvedic treatment for kidney failure, we have supplements that decrease the same. Moreover, we need to limit all oxalates in diet such as fruits and veggies which have seeds like brinjals, ladyfinger, Spinach, Beans, tomato( tomato ‘s outer shell can be consumed)& cucumber, guava, etc.
Sodium– Sodium also tends to accumulate in the body of kidney patients. More sodium can increase fluid retention and leads to swelling of various parts of the body like ankles. Reduce salt intake in the diet. All hypertensive nephropathy patients should decrease salt intake in the diet. Say no to pickles, pudina(mint) chutneys, etc. Unsalted popcorns and broccoli can be consumed. Low sodium salts are not suitable for CKD patients as it contains a lot of potassium. Ayurvedic treatment for kidney failure recommends ‘saindhav Lavan’ to such patients.
Red and yellow bell peppers can be cooked & eaten for a kidney failure patient.
Proteins – In the case of Dialysis patients – A high protein diet is recommended ie. 8-10 ounces of high protein food per day. This is to help you to replace muscles & other tissues that a dialysis patient loose. Milk & Egg white is recommended in Dialysis patients. I would advise cheese made from fresh milk at home from one glass of milk daily to a kidney patient.
