I find this page by accident. When I click the online consultation, a real doctor just appeared in the video. He answered all my questions and made a detailed analysis of my kidney problem.
I’m taking care of my grandfather, he is on dialysis due to renal failure. My question is can he consume black tea? His doctor told him to avoid green tea but didn’t mention black tea. Is black tea OK?
Hello, friend. Thanks for using our Online Service. For your questions, sincerely hope the following content will be helpful for you.
The intake of black tea is beneficial for Kidney Failure patients condition. It can relieve the edema level and reduce the risk of dying from CVD (Cardiovascular Disorder). Patients with dialysis easily experience bone diseases. Black tea has the ability of strengthening bones. Therefore, they can drink black tea properly, because the polyphenols of black tea have the ability of preventing the substance from destroying bone cells. For patients with kidney disease, keeping a healthy diet is good for patients to control and ease their own disease condition.
But different patients have different symptoms. Not all the kidney disease patients are suitable for the black tea. For example, black tea is also rich in potassium and phosphours. When your potassium or phosphorus levels in the test shows high, you should try to avoid black tea due to its high content of potassium and phosphorus.
