Is Coconut Oil Suggested to People on DialysisThe diseased kidneys fail to remove toxins from body adequately. A balanced diet can help reduce strain on kidneys and improve overall health condition. Is coconut oil suggested to people on dialysis?

Health benefits of coconut oil

Coconut oil has many health benefits include hair care, skin care, stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, increased immunity, bone strength. Just name a few here. These benefits of oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid etc. Given these health benefits, coconut oil is recommended to people strongly. Even though, it is not a good choice for people on dialysis.

Why coconut oil is not suggested to people on dialysis?

Coconut oil consists of more than ninety percent of saturated fats, with traces of few unsaturated fatty acids. High concentration of saturated fats in coconut oil is harmful to people on dialysis.

Dialysis patients should follow a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol. These patients are considered the group at the greatest risk of developing coronary artery disease. They often have increase in serum triglycerides and low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. Although they must eat a relatively high-calorie diet to spare protein, patients on dialysis should avid foods that raise triglycerides and cholesterol concentrations. As coconut oil is high in saturated fat,the patients on dialysis are recommended not to take.
