What diet helps control creatinine levels when on dialysis?

Q: My father (57 years old) is suffering from renal failure and is presently undergoing haemodialysis since the past 1 week. What diet would help control his creatinine levels in the blood?

A:Once a patient is on regular haemodialysis then you measure urea and creatinine to reflect the quality of dialysis and nutritional status of a person. In fact lower urea and creatinine on dialysis often reflects malnutrition and carries a poor long-term prognosis. The secret of a successful outcome on dialysis is related to three times a week 4 hours each time dialysis and patient eating high protein diet and maintaining a good nutritional status.
