Is Whole Grain Oatmeal Good for Diabetic Nephropathy PatientsDeveloping strict restrictions on daily diet is a requirement for all kidney disease patients, including diabetic renal disease patients. Well then, can they eat whole grain oatmeal? As the saying goes, one bowel of oatmeal a day can keep away from doctor. Is it same to patients with diabetic nephropathy?

Actually, diabetic kidney disease patients can benefit a lot from eating whole grain oatmeal. For instance:

Control blood sugar

Even though is oatmeal is a carbohydrate, it is a very good carbohydrate. As it is high in soluble fiber and it is slower to digest, it will not raise blood sugar as much or as quickly. It works better in controlling blood sugar level over time.Tight control of blood sugar can slow renal function deterioration.

Lower cholesterol

Oatmeal is a great source of soluble fiber, which is also found in apples, pears and barley. Soluble fiber inhibits the body’s absorption of low-density-lipoprotein, or LDL,which is known as the bad cholesterol. A well controlled of cholesterol level can prevent the heart disease to large extent.

Prevent the development of diabetes

Aside from fiber, oatmeal is also a good source of magnesium, which regulates the body’s insulin and glucose level. To up the ante, add milk into oatmeal. The boost of low-fat dairy can also lower the risk for diabetes.

Reduce the risk of high blood pressure

High blood pressure is the common symptom in diabetic kidney disease. Since oatmeal is high in fiber, which is heart-healthy, it offers many cardiovascular benefits, including a reduced risk of developing high blood pressure. What’s more, studies show that men can also reduce their risk of heart failure if they eat one bowl of whole grain oatmeal, per day.

Full of antioxidants

Oatmeal contains a special type of antioxidant called avenanthramide, which can protect LDL cholesterol from oxidizing from copper, thus reducing the risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

Strengthen immune system
