One day in September last year, the weather in Shijiazhuang was not as hot as summer, but most people were still wearing short sleeves.
Passing through the corridor of the ward, I saw a thin and weak young man. The particularly thin type, with joints in the elbows and knees that are thicker than other parts.
Nurse, why is that patient so thin
He pays too much attention to controlling his diet. He heard that kidney disease patients should choose a high-quality protein diet, so he only eats meat, eggs, and milk, but he dares not eat staple foods and rarely eats rice and pasta.
In this way, he became thinner day by day after eating, but later on, because he was too thin, he was scared to see it himself
I looked at his height and weight in the medical record book:
So let's talk about staple food. One patient asked in the message: "Can kidney patients eat Mantou?" I seriously doubt your weight
In fact, although the protein in rice noodles is not of high quality, it is the main source of heat. If you don't eat these staple foods, your body's energy source will be insufficient, leading to increasing weight loss.
Eating a large amount of meat, eggs, and milk actually exceeds the protein intake, which is not in line with the low protein diet principle of kidney disease. So the patient mentioned earlier had a 24-hour urine protein quantification of 3.2 grams, which is very serious.
Fortunately, after implementing the "fattening plan", the intake of staple foods, especially low protein staple foods, has increased, reducing the intake of meat and eggs. Over time, the patient's weight steadily increased.
Another misconception: only eating rice and not meat dishes
In the diet of kidney disease patients, eating only meat dishes without rice is an extreme, and eating only rice without meat dishes is also a common extreme, which stems from the misreading of high-quality low protein diet.
Some patients are afraid of excessive protein intake and dare not eat meat dishes. They consume a large amount of rice and pasta, but little do they know that rice and pasta also contain protein, which is of poor quality. Eating too much of anything is toxic to the body.
