Diet for Post Kidney Transplant PatientsAfter your kidney transplant, you may need to adjust our diet to keep your kidney healthy and functioning well. You may have fewer dietary restriction than you had while receiving dialysis. Well then, what is the healthy diet for post kidney transplant patients?

The following suggestions are for general post kidney transplant patients. As for your own diet, your dietitian will make an eating plan for you. You can also email to us at, and our doctor on duty will reply you within 24 hours, providing you some suggestions.

Diet for post kidney transplant patients

● Eating at least five servings of fruits and vegetables each day

● Avoiding grapefruit and grapefruit juice due to its effect on a group of immunosuppression medications (calcineurin inhibitors)

● Having enough fiber in your daily diet

● Drinking low-fat milk or eating other low-fat dairy products, which is important to maintain optimal calcium and phosphorus levels

● Eating lean meats, poultry and fish

● Maintaining a low-salt and low-fat diet

● Following food safety guidelines

● Staying hydrated by drinking adequate water and other fluids each day

Medication for post kidney transplant patients

Long term use of immunosuppressant agents will also bring some side effects. What’s more, the toxins and waste produced by the medicines will burden the kidneys. That’s why some post kidney transplant patients see elevated creatinine levels. Therefore, to protect and enhance kidney function, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs.

The herbs we choose can expand blood vessels, reduce inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes. Therefore, they can improve blood circulation and kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair the damaged renal tissues. Enhanced kidney function is the goal of our treatments.
