Renal Diets With Flavor

Today’s Dietitian Vol. 13 No. 8 P. 38 The Food Network’s Aaron McCargo, Jr spices up meals for patients with serious kidney problems. Several conditions can cause the loss of kidney function. The most common is type 2 diabetes, but cardiovascular disease can also be a cause. Sometimes old age is the culprit. Other times, genetic factors, such as polycystic kidney disease, are to blame. Whatever the underlying reason may be, once kidney function deteriorates to the point where the kidneys can no longer remove enough toxins from a person’s blood to keep him or her healthy—a condition known as end-stage renal disease (ESRD)—the person must start dialysis. The United States Renal Data System estimates that 382,000 patients with ESRD are currently receiving some form of dialysis. Dialysis does the work that the kidneys can no longer perform. Unless a patient receives a kidney transplant, he or she will stay on dialysis indefinitely. Because patients who are on dialysis need to restrict certain dietary nutrients to maintain their health, renal diets can be incredibly challenging for patients and dietitians alike. To complicate matters, many dialysis patients have food restrictions related to other health problems. Trying to sort through multiple diets can quickly become a daunting task. Barbara L. Zebrowski, MS, RD, CSR, LDN, corporate dietitian for Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA), which operates more than 1,800 dialysis centers in the United States, says patients are often overwhelmed by all the diet strictures. “You might have somebody who has diabetes who has been told they need to follow a diabetes diet, but they also have had cardiac issues resulting from their diabetes so they’re put on a heart-healthy diet—a low-cholesterol, low-saturated f Continue reading >>

Following A Diet For Diabetes And Kidney Disease

Following A Diet For Diabetes And Kidney Disease

Both of these illnesses can be difficult to manage alone, but can create even more stress when you have to manage both. Many Americans suffer from both conditions though and according to the End-Stage Renal Disease Incident and Prevalent Quarterly Update, approximately 37% of patients with ESRD have diabetes. (1) Diet becomes even more important for patients with both conditions. You will need to pay more attention to the amount of carbohydrates (sugars) that you eat. Carbohydrates can be found in many foods such as fruits, milk, breads, deserts and many drinks. Sodium remains important for both CKD and diabetic patients. Keeping your diet lower in sodium helps to lower blood pressure and reduce fluid retention. Protein is another nutrient that has enhanced importance and too much protein can be harmful for diabetic patients. It is important to talk to your dietician and nephrologist to determine the levels appropriate for your care. Another major change from only a kidney friendly diet is emphasis on eating on a routine and balancing out your meals and snacks. Peritoneal dialysis patients that also are diabetic need to be extra careful with their sugar levels, because dialysate solutions used to clean the body are normally sugar based solutions. Your care team will help determine what solution is best for you and help you adjust your diet to account for the extra sugar in the dialysate. Your care team should be aware of your status as a diabetes patient, however be proactive and make sure your dialysis care team is aware of your condition. The Following are examples of foods and drinks that are can be exchanged and are good for both diets: Fruits Good alternatives: Berries, grapes, cherries, apples, plums Avoid: Cantaloupe, mangos, kiwi, oranges, pomegranate Vegetables Continue reading >>

Renal Diabetic Diet Grocery List

Renal Diabetic Diet Grocery List

When you're dealing with diabetes and kidney disease, what you eat matters. The foods you include in your diet not only affect your blood sugar but also the amount of waste products and fluid your kidneys need to process and eliminate. If you're armed when you go to the grocery store with a ready list of foods you can eat, you're already well on your way to better managing your renal diabetic diet. Consult your doctor or dietitian to help you determine your individual nutritional needs and diet plan. Video of the Day Fruits and veggies are a source of potassium. When you have kidney disease, your body has a tough time getting rid of potassium, which can cause levels to build up in your blood, leading to an abnormal heart rate or even death. Loading your cart with mostly low-potassium fruits and veggies is a good start, but you also need to limit the amount you eat each day to keep potassium levels under control. Low-potassium fruits and veggies to add to your grocery list include apples, blueberries, peaches, pears, green beans, carrots, cabbage, eggplant, peppers and zucchini. When buying canned or frozen fruits and veggies, look for varieties without added salt or sugar. Better Off With Refined Grains and Starches While whole grains are most often recommended to people with diabetes to help with blood sugar control, whole grains are a source of potassium and phosphorus and may not be a healthy choice when you have kidney disease too. You need to be careful about getting too much phosphorus in your diet. High levels of phosphorus in your blood can lead to weak bones. To keep a lid on potassium and phosphorus intake, add foods such as white bread products, unsweetened refined cereals, flour tortillas, unsalted crackers, pasta or white rice to your grocery list. Meat, po Continue reading >>

The Independent Voice of Kidney Patients Since 1969 Your healthcare team may recommend that you follow a meal plan to help you manage your dietary needs. When youre on dialysis, you may occasionally need to eat more or less of certain nutrients. When you have diabetes, you must balance food choices to keep blood sugar under control. There are two methods designed to help you manage your diet: The exchange system for meal planning uses a personal meal plan developed with the help of your renal dietitian. An exchange is a serving choice from a list of foods in measured amounts that have about the same nutritional value. Your renal dietitian or a certified diabetes educator can give you a copy of this plan that is tailored to meet your needs. Carbohydrate counting involves planning meals based on the total number of grams of carbohydrates that you will eat for that meal. To follow this plan, you must be willing to keep track of the foods you eat and the carbohydrates allowed for each meal. Reading and understanding food labels are very important. No matter which plan you choose, youll need to monitor your blood sugar levels to ensure your diabetes is well-controlled. Putting together a meal plan that meets the needs of both dialysis and diabetes may seem difficult. Your renal dietitian and healthcare team are available to make this easier for you. Your renal dietitian will review your special diet prescription with you when you begin dialysis and regularly thereafter. Work together with your team to develop the best overall plan to manage your meals, medications, exercise and blood sugar monitoring for your lifestyle and medical needs. Remember to be flexible; your plan may need to change over time! Always remember that if you are on dialysis and have diabetes, you can be Continue reading >>

Diet Tips For People With Diabetes And Kidney Disease

Diet Tips For People With Diabetes And Kidney Disease

Diet is one of the most important treatments in managing diabetes and kidney disease. If you’ve been diagnosed with kidney disease as a result of diabetes, you’ll need to work with a dietitian to create an eating plan that’s right for you. This plan will help manage your blood glucose levels and reduce the amount of waste and fluid your kidneys process. Which nutrients do I need to regulate? Your dietitian will give you nutritional guidelines that tell you how much protein, fat and carbohydrate you can eat, as well as how much potassium, phosphorus and sodium you can have each day. Because your diet needs to be lower in these minerals, you’ll limit or avoid certain foods, while planning your meals. Portion control is also important. Talk to your dietitian regarding tips for accurately measuring a serving size. What may be measured as one serving on a regular diet may count as three servings on the kidney diet. Your doctor and dietitian will also recommend you eat meals and snacks of the same size and calorie/carbohydrate content at certain times of the day to keep your blood glucose at an even level. .It’s important to check blood glucose levels often and share the results with your doctor. What can I eat? Below is an example of food choices that are usually recommended on a typical renal diabetic diet. This list is based on sodium, potassium, phosphorus and high sugar content of foods included. Ask your dietitian if you can have any of these listed foods and make sure you know what the recommended serving size should be. Carbohydrate Foods Milk and nondairy Recommended Avoid Skim or fat-free milk, non-dairy creamer, plain yogurt, sugar-free yogurt, sugar-free pudding, sugar-free ice cream, sugar-free nondairy frozen desserts* *Portions of dairy products are o Continue reading >>

A vegetable omelet on a breakfast plate.Photo Credit: margouillatphotos/iStock/Getty Images A renal diabetic has developed kidney disease as a complication of diabetes. Having diabetes and kidney disease means you have to plan your meals carefully so that you follow the guidelines of your kidney diet while controlling your blood sugar. Controlling blood sugar helps slow the progression of kidney disease and prevents further complications of diabetes. Because nutritional needs are highly individual, it's crucial to consult your doctor regarding how to best meet your specific needs. If hemodialysis is part of your treatment, your doctor may recommend limiting electrolytes such as phosphorus, potassium and sodium. When planning your breakfasts, take the electrolyte restriction into consideration, along with guidelines for controlling blood sugar. You can still eat well with diabetes and kidney disease by choosing low potassium and low phosphorous foods, limiting your milk and dairy intake and avoiding simple sugars such as candies, sodas, sweet deserts, jam and honey. Because you have kidney disease, you must limit some foods that are typically allowed on a meal plan for diabetes. Limit milk, cheese and other dairy foods typically eaten for breakfast, such as yogurt, which are rich in phosphorous to one 4-ounce serving. You may need to avoid beans, dried fruit and refrigerated dough, such as biscuits and whole grains, since these are high in phosphoro Continue reading >>
