2014-02-16 07:44

Which Fruits to Avoid with Kidney FailureIn kidney failure, kidneys are functioning less than 15%, so patients often have many problems. In this condition, patients should avoid some fruits that may increase the burden on kidneys. What fruits to avoid with kidney failure?

Since the basic kidney function is to cleanse blood, maintain electrolyte balance and regulate blood pressure. When kidneys lose their ability to do this work, a restricted diet plan is needed. Then, patients had better avoid the following fruits.

1. Fruits are rich in potassium

Potassium is one mineral that seriously diseased kidneys can’t filter out extra potassium efficiently, so fruits high in potassium should also be eaten carefully. Banana, lemon, organ, kiwi fruit and some potassium-containing fruits should be limited.

2. Fruits contain a lot of phosphorus

No matter whether kidney failure patients have begun dialysis, phosphorus is one thing that kidney failure patients should control their intake. If you have bone disease, skin itching, muscle cramps or high PTH level, it means your phosphorus level is higher than the normal value. Therefore, fruits containing a lot of phosphorus should be controlled like pomegranate.

3. Fruits are source of oxalate

Additional oxalate intake will increase the risk of kidney stone that may worsen patients’ illness condition directly. For this reason, kidney failure patients had better avoid fruits which contain high content of oxalate.

4. Fruits with the property of diuretic

If you have kidney failure and nearly no urine output, you had better stay away from fruits with the property of diuretics. The reason is that this kind of fruit will increase the burden on kidney.
