 When your kidney function slows, your nutritional status can begreatly affected. This is in part due to the fact that the kidneys are thefiltering system in our bodies. Some nutrients may not be excreted aseffectively, so you need to limit them in your diet. Some also loseextra protein in the urine and others can develop a decrease inappetite which can lead to protein malnutrition.Below is a general diet prescription. However, this may be modified by your dietitian and/or Nephrologist to meet your specific needs.(This might be overwhelming but keep in mind that this is just to helpguide you to eat for the healthiest kidneys possible.)
 My Daily Goals
 
 
 Your target should be approximately...
Calories: 30-35 kcal/kgProtein: ~0.8 g/kgSodium: 2000 mgPotassium: 2000 mg
* To figure out your weight in kilograms, divide your weight inpounds by 2.2.
Example: Protein needs for a 150 pound person:150/2.2 = 68.2. Take that number and multiply by 0.8 --> 55 gramsprotein per day.
*If you are overweight or underweight, you may need to use yourIdeal Body Weight (IBW) to calculate needs.
