Is Pomegranate Juice Good for People on DialysisPomegranate juice has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and other health benefits. It can help reduce the risk of some health issues such as heart disease and cancer. Drinking pomegranate is good to people on dialysis.

Dialysis patients are at risk of developing complications, such as infection,electrolyte disturbance and heart disease. Drinking pomegranate juice can help reduce the occurrence of some dialysis complications.

In a study, the patients on dialysis were ordered to drink either pomegranate juice or a placebo drink three time a week for twelve months. Oxidative damage and inflammation have less effects on the patients who drank pomegranate juice than those who drank the placebo drink.

Additionally, drinking pomegranate juice can reduce the risk of infection and heart disease which are two significant death causes for the patients on dialysis. This is certainly a positive for dialysis patients.

However,dialysis patients should drink pomegranate juice only in moderation. In renal failure, the failed kidneys can not remove potassium from body adequately. High levels of potassium can cause irregular heartbeat and even heart failure. Pomegranate juice contains potassium so the patients should keep moderated consumption. Therefore, it is important for the patients on dialysis to talk with their doctor before consuming pomegranate juice. Also, pomegranate juice can alternate the levels of certain medications. So it is important to follow the doctor’s guidelines.

A healthy diet is critical for people on dialysis. It can reduce the load on kidneys and improve the quality of dialysis as well as reduce the complication of dialysis. For more dietary suggestions on dialysis, you can consult us on line directly.
