Diet for Kidney Disease

Life becomes complicated as soon as you are diagnosed with chronic kidney disease

The major role of the kidney is to remove all the excess water, toxins, salt, chemicals, and unwanted particles from your body to keep it clean.

Kidney disease is absolutely silent and often left you feeling helpless when diagnosed all of a sudden in an advanced stage.

Until one suffers from sudden weight loss, poor appetite, swollen ankle, itchy skin, tiredness, difficulty in breathing, etc, we never take kidney disease seriously.

How do you assess kidney function?

The overall kidney function is assessed by glomerular filtration rate (GFR)The normal GFR of an adult is between 90-120 ml/ minute. When GFR falls below 60 ml/ minute it needs medical attention. 

Apart from GFR, kidney damage can be assessed by USG/ CT scan, urine abnormality like the presence of blood and/ or protein (albumin) in urine, etc.

What is the solution?

Always remember you are not alone. Millions of patients worldwide are suffering from various degrees of kidney problems. But now what? Once it’s confirmed, the first thing that is non-negotiable is fixing your diet.

Your kidney is not functioning at its optimal capacity. Therefore, the kidneys cannot excrete metabolic waste products, and cannot balance electrolytes and fluid in your body.

On the other hand, kidney disease is a catabolic disease which means it demands more energy. Therefore, you may need a high-calorie diet.

Why should book appointment

So, to maintain this balance, you need a specifically balanced diet that will optimize the metabolic waste generation, and balance the electrolyte and fluid.

Let’s get one thing straight. Chronic kidney disease is not reversible in nature. But you can put on hold its progression with proper diet planning.

A well-planned diet along with medical treatment is essential. You must be having numerous doubts related to your regular diet.

People Talk about Us

Dr. Soma Chakrabarty offers a scientific and well balanced diet and nutrition advise. She designed my meal plan based on daily ration of each food category ,with multiple options which allowed flexibility to fit into routine lifestyle. I appreciated her approach of a sustainable diet plan and the flexibility to choose the food. She would follow-up on scheduled calls every week to discuss progress and clarify doubts. The three month plan with Dr Soma inculcated a disciplined approach to diet. I gave up all the packaged/ processed snacks, biscuits. I feel much better and energetic and my diabetes is much better controlled. I wish her all the best and highly recommend her.

Got the reference of Dr Soma Chakraborty from a friend and to my surprise she didn’t provide me a very strict diet. However, guided me to a balanced diet for each day. Best thing she didn’t suggest any fancy superfood diet, but guided me through a simple Indian meal in moderation. During the course of 6 months, she was always available for any difficulties I faced with the diet. She always suggested alternatives and that made me feel good about following the diet. Dr Soma’s constant motivation helped me develop a healthy lifestyle which I guess will follow for the rest of my life.

The excellent articles and information available on the website helped me decide to enroll with them. Dr Soma Chakrabarty designed a meal daily meal plan , taking into consideration multiple factors like availability, preferences, daily schedule, and followed by scheduled calls every week to discuss progress, suggest tweaks, resolve doubts and overcome my initial skepticism. After six months, the results have far exceeded my expectations, - to sum it up, I got my health back thanks to Dr Soma and Wellness Munch, and I wish them all the best.
