    The Hemodialysis Diet is a diet which is followed by the patients who are at stage 5 of chronic kidney disease (CKD). These patients have no kidney functioning and they undergo the process of "Dialysis". This process helps in extracting the waste blood and fluid from our body. Hemodialysis is a type of dialysis and it should be followed several times in a week. This diet includes the intake of excess amount of proteins which can be obtained from the foods like egg, meat, fish etc. It is recommended not to include a high amount of sodium, potassium and phosphorus in a diet of a patient who is undergoing such dialysis.
