Careful With Regular Vitamins!
Regular multi-vitamin supplements from the store are not good for you when you have kidney disease. Regular multi-vitamins may not have enough of the vitamins you need and too much of the vitamins A, C, D, E and K that could cause problems in your body.
Why Are Your Vitamin Needs Different When You Have Kidney Disease?
Because of Your Diet - Your special diet may limit how many dairy products, vegetables, or fruits you eat. You may also have a poor appetite or are tired and don't feel like making meals, which decreases your food intake.
Because of Kidney Disease - Your kidneys can no longer clean out all of the toxins from your blood. The toxins in your blood may prevent the vitamins from helping your body be healthy.
Because of the Medicines You Take - Some medicines you need to take may stop vitamins from being used by your body and you may need more of some vitamins so your body will be getting enough.
Because of Dialysis - The water-soluble B vitamins are all removed during dialysis whereas the fat-soluble vitamins, A, D, E and K, are not removed. Receiving too much of these vitamins could result in "vitamin toxicity," causing you to feel very sick.
Because of all these reasons, you need to take a renal multivitamin.
