What Kind of Meat Can a Person Eat With Kidney Disease

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-11-01 14:58

What Kind of Meat Can a Person Eat With Kidney DiseaseQuite a number of kidney patients have a question about what kind of meat can a person eat with kidney disease. As for this question, we don’t have quick or certain answer, because different patients can eat different kinds of meat according to their illness condition.

Most often, to determine which meat one kidney patient can consume, we should consider three aspects: the stage of his kidney disease, the extent of proteinuria and creatinine level. This is because kidneys are responsible for excreting waste products of protein metabolism and creatinine, which is generated from creatine.

Meat is a great source of both protein and creatine. If you are a kidney disease patient and take in meat mistakenly, it is more likely to worsen your illness condition instead of improving your overall health.

Generally speaking, the more advanced the stage of your kidney disease, the less your protein intake unless you are undergoing dialysis or have proteinuria. For example, you are recommended to take in 0.8g/kg of protein in early stage but 0.4g/kg of protein in end stage without dialysis.

In this case, meat such as chicken and fish contains low cholesterol and high-quality protein that is good for kidney disease patients, because on one hand it can reduce the burden on kidneys and on the other hand it can supplement enough nutrition for the body.

However, if your creatinine level is quite higher than the normal value (0.5-1.1mg/dl for female, 0.6-1.2mg/dl for male), you should restrict the intake of meat including animal meat, organ meat, fish, etc. This is because these kinds of meat contains creatine that can raise your creatinine level.

From the above analysis, we can know individuals with kidney disease have a great difference in consuming meat. If you want whether you can eat meat and which type is not harmful for you, you can ask our online doctor.
