Diet & Nutrition in Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic Kidney Failure Diet
To feel your best each day, you may need to change the amounts of some of the following nutrients in your diet. Try fresh or dried herbs and spices instead of table salt to enhance the flavor of foods. Also, try adding a dash of hot pepper sauce or a squeeze of lemon juice for flavor. Using non-dairy creamers and recommended milk substitutes in place of milk is a good way to lower the amount of phosphorus in your diet. Non-dairy creamers can be used in place of milk in cereals, coffee and many sauces. Labels on food packages only give you information about some of the nutrients in your diet. Read labels and ask your dietitian for more information. Herbs, spices, table wine and special vinegar can be used instead of salt to make your food flavorful. Try purchasing or growing fresh herbs. Ask your dietitian for a list of herbs and spices that blend with different types of foods.


As a patient with chronic kidney disease, your recommended diet may change over time, depending on how much kidney function you have.
