Can Someone With CKD Drink Apple Cider As A BeverageMy mother has Chronic Kidney Disease and her creatinine level is 2.3 mg/dl. Doctors said her kidney disease is due to high blood pressure. I want to know whether I can give apple cider to her. Well, can someone with CKD drink apple cider as beverage?

For people with Chronic Kidney Disease, apple cider or apple cider vinegar is one beneficial beverage, and making sure the appropriate amount can make patients drink this beverage healthily and safely. If you have CKD and drink apple cider with your doctor or online doctor’s guidance, you can get the following benefits:

Regulate the PH level in your internal environment

Even though apple cider tastes sour, it shows alkaline after metabolism in the body. When kidneys can’t work normally, many acidic waste products like uric acid will build up in the body to disturb the stable internal environment by affecting the PH level. Apple cider can neutralize the acidic substances so as to normalize internal environment.

Ease patients’ fatigue

This beverage can participate in the human body metabolism directly, so it can be absorbed quickly to supplement energy timely. Besides, it also contains rich iron that can help treat anemia. For people with CKD, anemia is the main cause of fatigue, so we say apple cider can help ease their anemia.

Enhance immunity

Various vitamins and amino acids in apple cider can help boost patients’ immunity, so they can fight against infections and inflammation better.

Improve appetite

Through prompting digestion and removing waste products, this beverage is honored a natural and good choice to manage CKD patients’ poor appetite.

Besides, apple cider also contains many minerals such as potassium and phosphorus. If patients’ potassium or phosphorus level is higher than the normal, they may need to avoid or limit the intake of apple cider.
