When you are on dialysis, you need to be careful about what you eat. Learning about your diet and changing your eating habits can help you stay healthy. To feel better and protect your health, making these three changes can make a big difference:
- Limiting fluids
- Eating a low-protein diet
- Limiting salt, potassium, and phosphorous
You may feel these changes limit you. Yet they can work to limit the build-up of waste products in your body. Talk to your renal dietitian. Learn about what’s best for you to eat. The changes in your diet that you choose can keep you on the path of better health in the months and years ahead.
