Diet - chronic kidney disease

Renal disease - diet; Kidney disease - diet

You may need to make changes to your diet when you have chronic kidney disease (CKD). These changes may include limiting fluids, eating a low-protein diet, limiting salt, potassium, phosphorous, and other electrolytes, and getting enough calories if you are losing weight.

You may need to alter your diet more if your kidney disease gets worse, or if you need dialysis.
