Is Barley Tea Good for Hypertensive Nephropathy PatientsFor healthy people, barley tea is a good choice for health care. However, is the same with Hypertensive Nephropathy patients?

Barley tea contains 17 minerals and more than 19 amino acids, which are all necessary for patients’ health. What’s more, some other substances in barley tea, such as vitamins, unsaturated fatty acid and dietary fiber also benefit patients a lot.

However, if hypertensive nephropathy patients have the following problems, they should avoid this beverage.


This is a common symptom in patients, which is due to low red blood count. Iron is a component of red blood cell, while some substances in this tea can stop iron absorption. Therefore, patients with anemia should avoid this beverage.

High level of toxins in gastrointestinal tract can induce gastrointestinal disease. If patients have this symptom, they should stay away from this drink, since caffeine in this drink can stimulate gastrointestinal tract.

Fluctuating blood pressure

Some substances in this drink can speed up blood flow and affect blood pressure, which can aggravate blood pressure fluctuation, and even cause some severe conditions, such as shock and arrhythmia.

For hypertensive nephropathy patients, their urine may be acidic and there can be high concentrations of metabolic wastes in their urine, such as uric acid and oxalic acid. This condition makes patients susceptible to kidney stone. And tannic acid in barley tea can make this condition worse.
