Can Kidney Patients Drink Green TeaGreen tea contains many antioxidants, such as tea polyphenols, which can alleviate oxidative stress, alleviate immune inflammation in patients with Chronic Kidney Disease, and is conducive to the rehabilitation of CKD. In addition, tea polyphenols can also help to delay aging, improve Cardiovascular Disease, and resist pathogens. But when kidney patients have the following complications, they can not drink tea. Now go on reading to learn more information.

1. Iron-deficiency anemia

The causes of renal anemia are complex, and iron deficiency anemia is its component. It is common in patients with renal failure.

Green tea contains more tannic acid, which can combine with iron to form sediments. Intestinal mucosa can not absorb iron, making anemia worse so as to damage the kidneys and organs of the whole body.

2. Insomnia

Insomnia occurs more frequently in dialysis patients. Caffeine in tea is exciting and not conducive to sleep.

3. Stomach illness

The accumulation of toxins and the side effects of glucocorticoid can induce gastric ulcer or gastric erosion in patients with nephropathy. Caffeine in tea stimulates the secretion of more gastric juice, making ulcers difficult to heal.

4. Arrhythmia

The risk of arrhythmia in patients with renal failure is high, and tea can increase the excitability of people, which may cause tachycardia, or even arrhythmia, while cardiac dysfunction will aggravate kidney disease.

5. Urinary calculi or kidney stones

Tea contains oxalic acid, which can lead to more stones. Patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) and urinary calculi should not drink tea as much as possible.

In addition, tannic acid in tea can not only combine with iron, but also with many drugs, which hinders the effect of drugs. Therefore, kidney patients should not drink a lot of tea, and it is better to drink tea after taking the medicine for 4 hours.

In short, patients with normal kidney function and without the above diseases can drink tea in moderation, and green tea is also beneficial to kidney health. However, patients with renal failure, PKD and urinary calculi should be cautious in drinking tea to avoid aggravating complications.
