Stage 3 Kidney Disease is characterized by moderate decreased glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of 30-59ml/min. Patients do not feel obvious symptoms or discomforts until they enter into Stage 3 CKD. As we all know, our kidneys are important organs which are packed with numerous functions.

However, once the kidneys are injured, a lot of symptoms will occur like creatinine level, poor appetite, frequent urination, edema and so on. For these reasons, peanut is bot a good choice for people with Stage 3 CKD.

Injured kidneys are easily causing high potassium level in your body. It is reported that there is 563.0g potassium level in 100g peanut. For stage 3 kidney disease treatment, if patients intake too many peanuts, then high potassium level will be elevated again. In the condition, it puts a strain on kidneys and worsen your health conditions.

2. High phosphorus in peanut

For patients, high phosphorus level will inhibit the absorption of calcium. What’s more, high potassium and low calcium level is the very common symptom for stage 3 kidney disease. In the condition, eating too may peanuts will induce some complications such as bone problems, heart problem and so on.
