CKD (chronic kidney disease) is the progressive disease, which can damage renal function gradually. Therefore, except for medical treatment, diet therapy is also important to control their illness condition. Then, can aspargus be eaten by patients with chronic kidney disease? Here we will give an overall explanation.
As you know, aspargus is a very popular food in our daily diet and it is well known for its abundant nutrients. In most conditions, CKD patients can get many benefits through consuming aspargus. However, you should be cautious when you eat this vegetable.
The nutrition of this vegestable include a good source of dietary fiber, folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin B6 and several minerals. All these will be be helpful in improving the kidney function. For renal disease patients, due to decline of renal function, swelling is one of leading symptoms as well as high blood pressure. Fortunately, this kind of vegetable are often regarded as a natural diuretic which can contribute to eliminating edema and lowering high blood pressure. In addition, aspargus has a good fame called “king of vegetables”. it is characterized by low-sugar, low-fat, high-fiber and high vitamins. In view of there regards, it can provide enough energy to meet the needs of patients’s body and enhance their immunity. At the same time, it can help patients to fight against infections, especially bladder infection or urinary tract infection. Besides, it has the function of anti-cancer. It contains abundant anti-cancer elements--Selenium, it can inhibit the division and growth of cancer cell, stimulate the immune function and promote the formation of antibodies, thus achieve the goal of anti-cancer.
But what I want to emphasize is that kidney disease patients should be careful when they choose to eat this vegetable. Because it contains a large amount of phosphorus and potassium. If you are a kidney disease patients with high potassium or high phosphorus, it is very dangerous for you to eat it.
