Can Kidney Disease Patients Drink Orange JuiceOrange juice has a refreshing and invigorating taste, it also comes packaged with a host of nutritional benefits for people. However, we should know for kidney disease patients, they should have a strict restriction on daily food and beverages. Well then, can kidney disease patients drink organ juice? Let’s see the following contents, and try to find out the answer by yourself.

Orange juice is mainly made up orange and water. Of course, sometimes, people may add a handful of sugar into this juice. To be frank, this kind of juice is not suggested to patients with kidney disease, especially people who in the advanced stage of kidney disease. Why? Because this drinks is a great source of potassium. Wanna more info, you can also talk with our Online Doctor directly or email us to

As we all know, our kidney is one of important organs and it needs to do many “work” to guarantee our body healthy. Except for producing urine, it also help regulate blood pressure, promote the production of EPO as well as keep electrolyte and acid-base balance. What’s more, healthy kidneys also help ship out the excessive potassium and keep potassium within a normal level which is about 3.5~5.5mEg/L. However, once patients are diagnosed with kidney disease, it implies that there is something wrong with your kidneys. And along with the decline of renal function, the damaged kidney loses it abilities as it did once. In this case, a large amount of potassium will build up in the body, causing high potassium which is also called hyperkalemia. It is very dangerous if left untreated, because it will cause more serious condition, like heart disease, nausea, irregular heartbeat and so on.

Under this condition, if you still insist drinking orange juice, it is not the optimal choice for you. in addition to oranges juice, you are required to keep away form banana, avocado, cantaloupe, kiwi, papaya and so on.

But what I want to stress is that not all kidney disease patients can not drink it at all. For example, if patients have no symptoms of high potassium and swelling, they can drink it in a right amount. Because it also contain vitamin C which is good for enhancing immunity.
