A renal diet is one that has a low content of protein, phosphorus, and sodium and emphasizes the importance of limiting the intake of fluids and consuming high-quality protein. It's essential to consult your dietician for individualized nutrition counseling. Several doctors believe that the progression of kidney diseases can be slowed down by following a renal diet.Reduce the intake of salt - Consuming an excess amount of salt with your foods is linked with high blood pressure.Exercise regularly - Exercises like running, walking, and swimming can help maintain a healthy weight, manage diabetes and high blood pressure, and decrease stress.
