Ramadan fasting and patients with CKD Stage 3

In fact, whether a Ramadan fasting is good or not is still a controversial studying topic. Here is a general introduction about several surveys. As for you own condition, you can send you test report to us at kidney-symptoms@hotmail.com or leave a message below.

● Pros

Some experts advocate beneficial effects of Ramadan fasting in chronic kidney disease patients.

First, they hypothesized that the tendency in blood pressure reduction, which was observed during the month of Ramadan, might has some beneficial effects on the patients’ renal function.

Second, they assumed that the body weight reduction during fasting can reduce the overhydration in patients with Chronic Kidney Disease and, subsequently, can improve the renal perfusion.

Third, they suggested that the reduction in dietary protein intake during the fasting month of Ramadan may be in charge of the decline in the serum creatinine values.

With respect to these observations, the authors suggested that fasting during Ramadan is safe for patients with chronic kidney disease.

● Cons

Chronic kidney disease is associated with gradual loss of kidney function over time. Many physicians are concerned about the worsening effects of fluid deprivation and electrolyte disturbance during Ramadan on the remaining renal function in patients with chronic kidney disease.

The authors argued that the fluid deprivation in Ramadan may induce acute tubular cell injury in chronic kidney disease patients.
