Is Honey Good for Kidney Disease PatientsTo manage kidneys well, Kidney Disease patients should have a specific diet. Well then, is honey good for diabetic kidney disease patients?

As we all know, the benefits of honey go beyond its great taste. Its natural gugars play an important role in preventing fatigue during exercise. The glucose in honey is absorbed bu the body quickly and gives an immediate energy boost. And it is known that honey has also been found to keep levels of blood sugar fairly constant compared to other types of sugar. If kidney disease patients eat honey in right amount, they can get various benefits from honey.


-- promote digestion

-- enhance immunity

--protect angiocarpy

--beauty skin

--regulate blood pressure

Even so, it does not mean that kidney disease patients can eat honey freely. Why? Eating too much honey will increase various risks for kidney disease patients. For example:

For Kidney Failure patients, eating too much honey can cause bone problems.

Honey contains a large amount of phosphorus, and kidney disease patients are prone to suffer from high phosphorus level. High phosphorus level restrain our body from absorbing enough calcium. If this condition lasts for a long time, hypocalcemia or low serum calcium level will occur. Low calcium level in blood is the main cause for renal failure patients to experience bone problems like bone pain, bone fracture and osteoporosis.

Through the above analysis, we can see that honey has both benefits and certain risks for kidney disease patients. Therefore, remember that you should have a right amount of honey intake. As for the issue about how much you can take in one day, you need to combine with your phosphorus levels and potassium levels.
