What to eat in kidney failure
In the renal failure diet, it is necessary to control the amount of salt, phosphorus, potassium, protein, in addition to the amount of salt, water and sugar. Therefore, consumption of processed foods must be reduced; prefer fruit cooked twice without reusing water, and consume protein only at lunch and dinner.
Here are some options on how you can eat for 3 days, based on that diet on other days, but a nutritionist may recommend a diet specially developed for each case, if you are not comfortable deciding what to eat.

5 healthy snacks for kidney patients
1. Tapioca with apple jam
How to make unsweetened apple jam
Wash the apples, peel and cut them into small pieces. Now, bring the apples to medium heat with the water, adding the lemon juice and cinnamon sticks. Cover the pan and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. If you want a more uniform, lump-free consistency, wait for it to cool and use a mixer to beat the jam.
2. Roasted sweet potato chips
Spread the sticks on an oiled platter and sprinkle the herbs. Take to a preheated oven at 200º for 25 to 30 minutes. If you want a sweeter taste, replace the herbs with powdered cinnamon.
3. Starch biscuit
Beat all ingredients in an electric mixer until uniform consistency is reached. Use a pastry bag or a plastic bag to make the cookies in circles. Place in medium preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
4. Unsalted popcorn
Sprinkle herbs for flavor. Good options are oregano, thyme, chimi-churri or rosemary.
5. Butter cookie
This recipe for butter cookies is good for kidney failure because it is low in protein, salt and potassium.
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and knead until it is free from the hands and the bowl. If it takes too long, add a little more flour. Cut into small pieces and place in a medium-low oven, preheated, until lightly browned.
Each cookie has 15.4 mg of potassium, 0.5 mg of sodium and 16.3 mg of phosphorus. In renal failure, strict control of the intake of these minerals and proteins is important.
