Peanut Butter is a quite delicious food which is favored by most people. However, for Stage 3 CKD patients, they may should be careful while eating peanut butter. Because kidney disease patients are required to have balanced diets. Can I eat peanut butter with stage 3 kidney disease? Now, let’s have a see.
Stage 3 CKD
A person with stage 3 chronic kidney disease has a moderate kidney damage which is marked by the moderate decrease of GFR (30-59ml/min). In the stage, patients begin to suffer from some disorders due to kidney damage. As we all know, our kidneys play an important role in keeping the electrolyte and acid-base balance, and they are responsible for discharging extra wastes and toxins from the body. However, for stage 3 kidney disease patients, their kidneys are unable to do these job effectively. And they are prone to suffer from high phosphorus level and high potassium level, etc.
Well then, can stage 3 kidney disease patients eat peanut butter?
On the one hand, peanut butter can be a bad choice for kidney disease, because it contains a large amount of phosphate; on the other hand, it also a good source of potassium. In the early stage, proper intake of peanut butter is beneficial for lowering blood pressure. But with the progression of kidney disease, your kidneys cannot remove the extra phosphorus and potassium from your body. Therefore, if patients have high phosphorus and potassium level, it is better to keep away from peanut butter.
Actually, there is no certain food that kidney disease patients can eat or cannot eat. Whether stage 3 kidney disease patients can eat peanut butter or not depends on patients’ individualized illness condition. After all, illness conditions are different from person to person.
