2013-09-26 15:34

Can Kidney Patient Drink Coffee or TeaCoffee and tea are two common drinks both in western countries and eastern countries. In our daily life, many people like to drink a cup of coffee or tea every day, but for kidney patients, coffee or tea is not always a good choice of drinks.

Firstly, we should know healthy kidneys are remarkable excretory organs that removes wastes produced by the decomposition of foods and drinks we consume. Secondly, learn how strong kidneys’ compensatory ability is, and this determines kidneys can still work normally unless more than 50% of kidney functioning tissues are damaged.

From the above analysis, we can know kidney patients with more than 50% kidney function may find their diet or lifestyle doesn’t change a lot, so they can still drink some coffee or tea one daily. However, the amount patients can drink is difficult to determine so that they should consult their doctor or the online doctor before consuming coffee or tea.

If patients have 50% kidney function or less, coffee and tea should be restricted strictly or avoided. This is because these two kinds of drinks can cause some healthy problems for kidney patients:

- Cause or worsen high blood pressure: Drinking caffeinated beverages including coffee and tea might constrict blood vessels so as to increase patients’ blood pressure.

- Make blood sugar up and down: Some researches suggest that caffeine in coffee and tea may change the way diabetic process sugar, so it can cause increase as well as decrease in blood sugar.

- Some other problems: Drinking too much coffee and tea may also lead to heartbeat, tremor, sleep problems, confusion, swelling, dizziness, etc.
