Hi.. The diet that he needs depends on the present status of the kidney functions.. In general a diet which has low fat, low salt is needed.. Calorie consumptions must be just adequate to maintain his body weight, any thing more has to be avoided.. His fluid consumption must also be maintained strictly.. A dietician may be able to frame a diet based on his body weight, his present kidney function status and presence of other comorbid condition..
