Is Garlic Effective On Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Failure

2013-09-10 15:15

Is Garlic Effective On Stage 4 Chronic Kidney FailureSome people with kidney disease may have heard that garlic can help treat kidney disease or chronic kidney failure in early stage. However, is garlic still effective on stage 4 chronic kidney failure? Many patients have asked a similar question. Today, we are here to give out the answer.

In stage 4 chronic kidney failure, more than 70% of kidney function is damaged, so more and more symptoms appear. Garlic contains rich nutritions, some of which are able to ease patients’ symptoms or improve their kidney condition.

1. Antibacterial and antiviral

Garlic is most well-known for its anti-inflammatory properties. People with stage 4 chronic kidney failure usually have low immunity so that they are more susceptible for infections or inflammations. Eating some garlic can help them get rid of various infections such as urinary tract infections.

2. Blood thinning

The anti-clotting properties of ajoene in garlic can help prevent the formation of bloood clots, so as to guarantee the smooth blood flow. Besides, garlic can also help improve blood circulation.

3. Lower high blood pressure

High blood pressure has a close link with chronic kidney failure. In stage 4, most patients’ blood pressure has been much higher than the normal. If left alone, it is more likely to worsen patients’ condition and cause further kidney damage. Alicin in garlic can block the activity of angiotensin, a protein to help increase blood pressure, to reduce hypertension.

4. Help treat diabetes

Along with high blood pressure, diabetes is another risk for kidney disease patients, so well control of diabetes can help slow the progress of chronic kidney failure. Garlic increases insulin release to regulate blood glucose for diabetic kidney disease patients.

Although garlic has so many benefits for people with stage 4 chronic kidney failure, patients who have anemia, diarrhea, gastrointestinal disease, etc may need to avoid it.
