There is no question over the fact that eating a healthy diet is the key to combat diabetes and kidney diseases successfully. A good diet for renal failure diabetes is one which helps lower your blood glucose level and at the same time reduces the amount of waste products processed by your kidney. Your diet should contain the appropriate amounts of protein, fats and carbohydrates to ensure your body receives every kind of nutrition as well as the required amount of calories. And try to reduce the amount of minerals such as sodium, potassium, phosphorus and fluids in your diet. If this sounds too complicated for you, don’t worry! Your local dietician should be able to create an individualized diet plan for you. The type of diet I mentioned above will ensure that your body can make the most of what you eat.
I think that now it is very clear to you that if you want to survive, you must learn to make wise food choices, which may mean that sometimes you may have to give up some of your favorite foods. It is good to keep an eye on the packages of foods you are purchasing. Don’t think that drinking something as harmless as soup is OK because some soups contain a high percentage of sodium, which is bad for your health. Popular diet colas, as well as some teas and lemonades have sodium as well as phosphorus and you should try to avoid these types of foods as much as possible. You may also need to break your meal into two or three servings per day instead of eating the whole meal at once. This would ensure that your blood sugar levels constantly remain at a normal level. For example, let’s say that your current meal has a high amount of carbohydrates. As you know, consuming a large amount of carbohydrate will raise your blood glucose levels. But if you break that same meal into say, 3-4 servings, your blood sugar levels won’t be affected much. Don’t break your meal into too many servings though, because if the amount of carbohydrates you consume per serving is less than normal, you may suffer from low blood sugar. Since the whole thing is quite complicated, you should ask your dietician’s advice regarding this as he would be able to tell what is good for you and what is not. He may even suggest you to add some fatty foods to your diet, or increase the amount of carbohydrate intake per day.
