The diet for patients with kidney failure will depend on their height, weight, blood tests, and dialysis choice. The diet may change as the disease progresses. So, it is necessary to seek the advice of a health care provider or a renal dietician for diet guidance.
There are, however, certain foods you must avoid if you are suffering from kidney failure.
9. Avoid Foods with High Sodium Content
Too much sodium in the diet can cause fluid retention and raise your blood pressure. Seasonings like soy sauce, canned foods, packaged foods, processed meats (ham, bacon, sausage), snack foods, pizza, hot dogs, pickles, papad, vathal, cheese, dried fish and even frozen vegetables with sauce are high in sodium – hence avoid them.
Avoid salted chips, nuts, popcorn, salted biscuits. Avoid baking powder, sodium bicarbonate containing products. Avoid proprietary drinks, chocolate, chocolate drinks, cocoa products.
