How to Avoid Dialysis | 3 Ideas to Start (If It’s Not Too Late)
This video is about How to Avoid Dialysis. The first thing you need to do is the opinions of two to three nephrologists. This is because the field of kidneys is constantly evolving, changing, and every doctor knows something that the other doctor doesn’t know. It’s not standard, not everybody practices the same way. Some doctors are much more aggressive than others. Some have a different viewpoint different experience, different education, so you really want to get two to three nephrologists at least their opinions because they can address different areas.
The second thing is you want to take something that’s going to take away and help support normal toxin elimination. Something to get those kidney toxins out of the body. This being prebiotics, probiotics, you usually want to take something that binds and absorbs like a soluble fiber. This is going to help get rid of those toxins. When it does that, your kidneys have less work to do. They can rest a bit they don’t have to be stressed so you want to do that.
The third thing you want to do is you want to follow a low protein diet. When you have kidney issues there is no debate about this anymore–this is being recommended starting in 2020 by most of the major kidney organizations in the United States and around the world. The national kidney foundation gives it as one option you can do the American journal of kidney diseases gives it as another option, the American association of nutrition and dietetics these are dietitians and they say it’s okay to use.
If you do a high protein diet, you’re just putting fuel on the fire and your kidneys are going to lose their function much faster. You must do a low protein diet. Also, low sodium is really helpful.
