Is Watermelon Good for Chronic Kidney Disease Patient

2015-01-26 15:48

Is Watermelon Good for Chronic Kidney Disease PatientWatermelon is the king of fruits it can help the body remove wastes, so most of the people like to eat it. However, can watermelon be helpful for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)? Whether watermelon can be taken depends on the patient’s own conditions. Do you have swelling, high potassium level or diabetes? If so, you’d better not take watermelon. 

Watermelon aggravate swelling

For kidney disease patients, their kidney function is severely damaged, so large amount of fluid retains inside the body. Too much fluid builds up in the tissue space will compress the blood vessels, leading to ischemia and anoxia in the kidneys. Therefore, Stage 4 CKD patients are not recommended to eat watermelon.

Watermelon is rich in potassium

If the potassium level in the blood is high in the blood, it can cause hyperkalemia. Some symptoms such as weakness, abnormal heart rate, numbness, pale face and nausea, etc might be seen.

Watermelon contains rich sugar

That’s why diabetics are not recommended to take watermelon too much.Treatment for CKD stage 4 patientsIt is right that to make some die restrictions, but it is far from enough to deal with Stage 4 CKD. Since the kidneys have been severely damaged, treatment should aim at not only controlling symptoms but also protecting the remaining renal function.Therefore, I recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. As the main therapy in our hospital, this natural treatment has helped so many patients from abroad and at home. We choose Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and involve osmotic device, so as to make the effective ingredients play effects more fully than oral medicines.What’s more, since this therapy is an external application, it is very natural for kidney disease patients.
