Please suggest a diet for acute renal failure.

Q: My 56 years old uncle has acute renal failure. Can you please suggest a diet for him? He is a diabetic, hypertensive and has fatty liver too.

A:Diet for your uncle with acute renal failure, diabetes and hypertension should be a diabetic diet, which is low in carbohydrates and saturated fat. Average daily calorie intake should be 2000 K cal. It should include daily protein intake of 50-60 gram, have low potassium content (essentially avoiding most of the fruit juices, dry fruits and chocolates), optimal salt restriction (daily intake recommended being 3-4 grams) and daily fluid restriction depending upon signs of any fluid overload (as judged by his physician on examination). Lastly, avoid taking potential kidney toxic medications like daily continuous intake of common pain medications like Voveran and Nimulid.
