Can Diabetic Nephropathy Patients Drink MilkMilk is one of important part of our daily life, but for diabetic nephropathy patients, they have strict requirements on foods and beverages. Can they drink milk or not? That’s a question. Now, let’s see the answer.

Most people think that milk contains a large amount of sugar, so it is not suitable for diabetes patients with kidney disease,while, it is wrong. Drinking milk in a right amount can bring various nutritions for diabetic renal disease patients.

The healthy benefits of milk for diabetic nephropathy patients

Milk is rich in high-quality protein which is good for diabetic kidney disease patients. It can provide more essential amino acid for the body and reduce the wastes products in the metabolic process. Besides, milk is also rich in calcium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, etc, so it is one good source of minerals for diabetics with kidney disease.

For any kidney diseases patients, they are prone to have bone problems. Milk is an excellent source of calcium which can strengthen their bone and the proportion of calcium and phosphorus is appropriate. Therefore, they can prevent the onset of low calcium level. Especially, if you are in the early stage of this disease, it is better to consume milk since it will provide energy and enhance your immunity to fight infections or flue or fever.

Notices when drinking milk

1. Don’t add sugar into your milk. Since diabetes patients should control their blood sugar strictly, they had better not add sugar into the milk or choose sugar-free milk.

2. If you have high phosphorus, I’m afraid that you should keep away from milk because it made by dairy products always contain rich phosphorus.
