Can Kidney Disease Patients Eat KetchupKetchup is a popular condiment when you eat hot dogs, hamburgers and French fires. Ketchup is quite delicious, but it is not very healthy for Kidney Disease patients. Thereby, it is important to make sure the nutritional truths behind ketchup for Kidney Disease patients.

For patients with Kidney Disease, they should protect their kidney function from further damage. In their daily life, besides medical treatments, healthy diet also plays an important role in treating Kidney Disease. Now, I would like to tell you the components of ketchup.

Tomato content

As the name suggests, one of primary components of ketchup is tomatoes. Tomatoes contain rich vitamin C, rutin, lycopene, and acidity, etc. These minerals are able to help lower serum cholesterol, prevent coronary artery disease, lower high blood pressure and ease swelling. Thereby, eating correct amount of tomatoes is good to help treat kidney disease to some extent.

Sodium content

Ketchup is made by crushing tomatoes and mixing with water, sugar, vinegar, salt, etc. Although ketchup contains high amount of tomatoes, it still contains quite a bit of salt. It is necessary to limit intake of sodium for Kidney Disease patients, because sodium is not only the main culprit in water retention, but also is to blame for a number of other serious diseases. For example, in clinical, sodium has been found to contribute to high blood pressure as well as damage to arterial walls. Generally speaking, you should avoid ketchup with high salt in order to get optimal health.

High fructose corn syrup content

Ketchup has also been found to contain high amount of fructose corn syrup. Fructose corn syrup is typically used as a sugar substitute. It is easily cause obesity, high blood pressure, and it can increase risk of cardiovascular disease. What’s more, it is considered to be one of the key factors for diabetes.

As mentioned above, you can know that ketchup does have some disadvantages for patients with Kidney Disease. However, if you cann’t help eating some food with ketchup, you can make it by yourself according to your kidney condition.
