What Is the Diet for Dialysis PeopleWhen people develop into End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), also called Kidney Failure, they are required to take dialysis. Since the kidneys are very severely damaged, wastes produced by what you take may burden the kidneys. Therefore, a dialysis diet is very necessary to slow down the progression kidney damage. What is the diet for dialysis people?

Overview of the dialysis diet

If you are getting adequate dialysis as prescribed by your doctor, the restrictions will be minimal. The key is to eat good, healthy food at small intervals with moderation. You can add something new on your diet, but before it, you should talk with your doctor.

Dialysis diet

There are four main things all dialysis patients need to be careful about in their diet.

1. Sodium: Eat less or even no sodium during dialysis is to prevent swelling and high blood pressure. Generally speaking, dialysis patients are recommended to take sodium not more than 2g each day.

2. Protein: The suggested protein amount is 0.6-0.8 gram per kg of body weight, and half of them should come from high-quality protein resources, such as egg white, lean meat, fish and milk.

3. Phosphorus and potassium: How much you can take depending on the blood test result. You can send it to us at and our doctors will give you specific suggestions.

4. Fluids: At this end stage of kidney disease, excess fluid cannot be removed by kidneys adequately, thus leading to swelling or high blood pressure. Consult your doctor to calculate water intake in each day.


Even though a dialysis diet is very necessary, it cannot solve the underlying problems. It cannot replace the medication treatment. We treat kidney disease mainly by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Based on them, some innovative therapies are also used for improving blood circulation and repair damaged renal tissues. I hope you can also benefit from our natural treatments. Welcome your consultation!
