What diet should a chronic renal failure patient take?

Q: I am a 58 years old chronic renal failure patient. Could you please frame a diet chart for me? What should be my salt intake?

A:Diet for chronic kidney disease should include daily calories of 2000-2200. It should include daily protein intake of 45-50 gram, have low potassium content (essentially avoiding most of the fruit juices, dry fruits and chocolates), low saturated fat and be rich in complex carbohydrates unless one is diabetic. Amount of salt restriction advocated depends upon one's blood pressure control and status of fluid volume accumulation, later condition being prevalent in advanced stages of kidney disease. Usual daily intake of salt recommended is 3-4 grams. Diet has to be tailored based on the stage of kidney disease.
