Coconut has many benefits for your health and improves your immunity. However, coconut seems not a good choice for Kidney Disease. Coconut oil contains a high amount of saturated fat.

Whether you are eating the meat, drinking the juice, or consuming it as oil, coconuts are a delicious and nutritious source of fiber, minerals, amino acids and vitamins. According to the dietitian, coconut has plenty of magnesium, potassium, calcium and electrolytes. In fact, coconut water is known to have the same electrolyte levels as human plasma, and has even been used for plasma transfusions!

Health benefits aside, one the most promising applications for this tropical beverage is as a premium mode of re-hydration.

Some doctors go so far as to recommend this nutritional liquid in cases of diarrhea or other situations were re-hydration is a medical necessity. But there are a few caveats worth noting.

Caution should be used in people with: a) poor kidney function; and b) those who require higher glucose and sodium content as part of the re-hydration process. The relatively low levels of sodium and sugar in coconut water are generally considered positive attributes, but may not be ideal in all circumstances.

Coconut Oil and Kidney Disease

Indeed, it has more than lard and even butter. Due to the high amount, consuming coconut oil can elevate your level of blood cholesterol and increase your risk for developing heart disease. It cannot help kidney disease, an inflammation in the capillaries within the kidneys.
