The kidneys balance the amount of chemicals and fluid in our blood stream, and other functions as well. Phosphorus is one of the chemicals that is balanced by the kidneys. Kidney failure effects patients in different ways. If her kidneys can not filter out and eliminate excess phosphorus that we consume in the foods we eat, it can cause problems. High phosphorus in the blood causes the calcium level to go down, and that can cause bone disease (osteoporosis). Osteoporosis causes brittle bones that lead to fractures. Her dialysis unit should have either a nurse or a dietician that can help her understand what kind of a diet she needs to follow. The unit should have pamphlets and lists of foods that are high in phosphorus. Her kidney doctor should also be able to dispense information regarding diet and fluid intake. WebMD has a lot of information on kidney disease. Look up kidney failure and diet. They list foods high in phosphorus. It is a complex disease and many patients find it difficult to follow the renal diet.
