Mango is loved by many people, even for diabetic kidney disease patients which are due to its good reputation of king of tropical fruit. However, it is well known that many foods or drinks can make a further damage for patients with diabetic nephropathy. Then, is mango suitable for them?
First, let’s have a look about something about diabetic renal disease.
It is secondary to diabetes which mainly occurs among people with a long history of diabetes. In some severe condition, it is likely to induce kidney failure. And many symptoms will be presented, such as high blood pressure,high blood sugar, high cholesterol level, edema, fatigue, poor appetite,and so on.
Then, I will analyze this fruit’s nutrients overall in the following contents.
1. Lower high blood pressure
It contains nucleus, which can be used as a medicine to help lower high blood pressure as well as high cholesterol in the blood.
2. Reduce edema or swelling
It is also a natural diuretic, which can be helpful for patients who still have edema. It can help increase the urine output, and help remove more wastes from body.
3. Improve immunity
It is rich in carotene and vitamin C, which both can help regulate the immune system and improve immunity. Besides, it has been proved that vitamin C can also help patients to protect their residual kidney function.
Whether yu can eat it depends on the level of your blood glucose. In fact, it contains a lot of natural sugar. If your fast sugar is below 100mg/dl, PBG (postprandial blood glucose) is less than 100mmol/l, patients have a moderate amount of mango, which may help you to treat diabetic nephropathy. Otherwise, eating excessive will aggravate your illness condition. Except for that, it is full of potassium which is very dangerous if you have high potassium level. Also, if you are allergic to it, you’d better avoid this fruit.
From above we can know, not all patients can eat mango freely. Therefore, for diabetic kidney disease patients, they should eat or avoid it according to their illness condition. You can leave a message below or contact our dietitian for a wise decision.
