Can Patients with Renal Failure Eat Cheese

2013-01-06 16:54

can patients with renal failure eat cheeseMany people all over the world pretty love the delicious Cheese, which can be eaten directly or made into some snacks. Can patients with Renal Failure eat cheese? Do these people have to give up this good taste? Until now, many Renal Failure patients have asked me this question, so today I give the answer in the website.

Cheese is one kind of nutritious food made mostly from the milk of cows but also other mammals such as sheep, goats, camels, etc. As a product of milk, cheese has high content of fat, protein, calcium, phosphorus and sometimes salt. Most often, patients with Renal Failure are recommended a low intake of protein, fat, phosphorus and salt. Does this mean these patients have to give up their ability to enjoy the good taste of cheese completely?

The fortunate answer is no. If you are one of Renal Failure patients, you can enjoy a small part of cheese if your phosphorus level is normal but you should avoid blue cheese, feta cheese, processed cheeses such as Cheese Whiz and processed cheese slices, because these cheeses contain too high phosphorus, protein and fat. In view of this, you can eat little cheese which is not processed completely. Containing high-quality protein, a little cheese is able to help build and repair muscle. Remember you can’t eat salt cheese or the above cheese. However, you had better not eat cheese if your phosphorus level is higher than the normal.

Can patients with Renal Failure eat cheese? If your condition allow, you can consume a small part of cheese, while you had better avoid cheese no matter how you love it. If you love eat bread, you can also know something about "can patients with renal failure eat bread".
