Nutritional Supplements for Renal Patients
Individuals dealing with kidney problems need to follow strict dietary rules to help their body function at its best. Often times, they’ll opt to round out their meal plans with new types of snacks because other foods are restricted. Nutritional supplements for renal patients are designed to help keep potassium and fluid levels low for dialysis treatment. Of course, some individuals might use renal supplements even if they don’t need dialysis. The products are uniquely formulated to help with all types of kidney-friendly diets.
Challenges with Renal Supplements
Finding nutritional supplements for kidney dialysis patients can sometimes feel like a challenge. They need to avoid certain ingredients in order to meet their specific dietary guidelines. Renal supplements offer an easy solution because they are specially designed for any or all of the following nutritional requirements:
- Low Lactose/Lactose-Free
- Low Protein
- High Protein
- Low Phosphorus
- Low Potassium
- Low Sodium
- Fluid Restrictions
- Lactose Restrictions
When deciding on which foods are right for you or your loved one, it’s always important to talk with your care team. In general, the best options for dialysis supplements (and other kidney-friendly products) will meet all the above requirements and still taste great!
Low potassium levels are an important component of nutritional supplements for renal patients at every stage, but it’s especially important that supplements for dialysis patients have high-protein levels too. Taking in extra protein helps the body replace the albumin that was pulled from the blood during dialysis treatment. Fortunately, these dietary restrictions can be easily followed with help from a couple products.
