      Get your kidneys to perform better

      Our kidneys are small organs but play a key role in maintaining the health of the body. Their function is to filter the waste products from the blood and evacuate them from the body through the urine. Following a diet that is healthy for the kidneys will keep it performing well.


      Water is essential to various parts of our body and especially the kidneys. The cells in our body use water as a medium to move toxins into the bloodstream. The kidneys then take over and filter the toxins and generate urine.


      Berries are high in antioxidants and this works to neutralize free radicals in the body. These are also good for CKD and dialysis patients.

      Sweet potatoes

      These are rich in vitamins and minerals like potassium, that work to balance the levels of sodium in the body and cut down the stress on the kidneys. However, since this is high in potassium, those with CKD or on dialysis must avoid it.

      Dark leafy greens

      Dark leafy greens which include spinach, chard and kale are abundant in vitamins, fibers, and minerals, consume them generously. However, like sweet potatoes, these too tend to have a lot of potassium and those with CKD or on dialysis must have less of these.


      These are rich in an important fiber known as pectin. This will help cut down certain risk factors for kidney damage like high blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

      Consume less red meat

      The kind of protein that is found in red meat is tough for the kidneys to process. So, it’s good to cut down on this or avoid it altogether.

      Fatty fish

      Salmon, tuna, and other cold-water, fatty fish that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. These are known to bring down fatty acid levels in the blood and lower BP. As BP is a risk factor for kidney disease, consuming fatty fish therefore helps protect kidneys.
