Pediatric kidney transplantation part 115

Children

 

SODIUM

In general, it is a good idea after transplant for your child to limit salt in their diet. Some of the medications increase the chance of having hypertension after transplant and also make it harder for your child to handle salt loads.

Some common foods that are high in sodium are:

  • Salt
  • Cured meats (bacon, ham)
  • Canned or died soups
  • Ethnic foods: Chinese, Japanese, Mexican and Italian
  • Sauces and condiments
  • Prepared casseroles
  • Macaroni and cheese mixes

Ask your doctor if you need to restrict the salt in your child’s diet. The dietitian will meet with you if this is needed.
