In brief: Renal DIet
Generally, dialysis patients are on a diet that is low in protein.
They also may need to watch their intake of certain electrolytes such as potassium and phosphorus. They generally should not drink a great deal of fluids. The specifics of all of these limitations vary from patient to patient, however.

For many patients on hd it is important to have enough protein to protect against weight loss.
