Should People with Chronic Kidney Disease Eat FishShould people with Chronic Kidney Disease eat fish ? Some times, doctors will recommend people with kidney disease to keep away from fish, because it is high in protein and potassium. But the fact is it is also rich in other nutritions, so people should not avoid to eat all of them.

I will give you an example to show you why people should not avoid to eat all of them.

“MY grandma has a kidney problem and the doctor said that she couldn't eat fish anymore because of the potassium. However, she likes fish and is not eating well. Is it true?” (this is the question from our online doctor part, if you have any question, you also can contact us.)

“According to your grandma’s condition, it is impossible to avoid eating fish due to her poor appetite. So she can eat some fresh water fish, that can supply enough high-quality protein and other nutritions. ” (this is the answer from our doctor)

Actually, fresh-water fish is different from deep-fish water, it contains rich high-quality protein, which is easy to digest. Besides that, it is abundant in Vitamin, mineral iron, phosphorus, calcium and so on, so it is the good source of nutrition.

As a kidney disease patient, what kind of foods you choose to eat is very important, it may increase the curative effect or decrease it, so do pay special attention to it. If possible, you can make a diet play with the help of your nutritionist according to you own disease condition, because in different stage of this disease should have different food list.
