Paramus, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/29/2014 -- It is well known and scientific fact that a low potassium and low phosphorus diet is preferred for kidney disease. Especially in the later stages of kidney disease such as stage 3, 4 and 5. These dietary recommendations will help keep these mineral levels low, avoid complications such as cardiovascular (heart) disease, prevent bone loss and most importantly slow down kidney disease.
When a low potassium and low phosphorus diet are used together with low sodium and low protein diet people can stop kidney disease and even gain back some kidney function.
Here is an example of foods low in potassium, phosphorus, protein and sodium:
-Apples, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and any other food in the berry group. These are excellent foods as they are low in the mentioned minerals and protein but also provide lots of anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants can protect the kidney from cell damage. They also help reverse cell damage.
-Rice is an excellent food for kidney disease. It is low in potassium, phosphorus and protein. Phosphorus is also low in white rice. Brown rice has more phosphorus in it and should be avoided. In the general public a healthy diet consists of whole grains. However, when it comes to kidney disease whole grains contain more phosphorus, so it is best to use refined grains instead of whole grains. If phosphorus levels are controlled people can include some whole grains in the diet.
-Look for foods that are low in sodium and avoid using most prepared spices. Prepared spices usually have sodium added to them. People can opt to use seasoning preparations with no added sodium. A common brand is Ms. Dash found in most supermarkets. Also, check the labels of foods and choose the lowest options.
These are just a few examples of kidney friendly foods that are low in potassium and phosphorus with recommendations for sodium. There are lots of recommendations including dietary and natural supplements that can help kidney disease.
