Is Jackfruit OK to Consume For CKD Stage 3 Because of jackfruit's rich properties like vitamin, minerals, electrolytes and fiber, some people may think it is good for CKD Stage 3 patients. Is Jackfruit OK to eat for Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 3 patients?

Patients with CKD Stage 3 has a reduction in GFR(glomerular filtration rate). At this time, kidneys are severely damaged, losing the function of keeping electrolyte balance. Excess sodium, phosphorus and potassium can not be excreted from the blood. Hyperkalemia (high blood potassium) is possibly caused. Hyperkalemia can cause the following uncomfortable feelings: nausea, weakness, numbness or tingling, drowsiness, coma, irregular heartbeat and heart failure.

Although jackfruit is so sweety and tasty, patients with CKD Stage 3 need to limit the intake. Jackfruit contains a high level of sugar and potassium. Firstly, diabetes is one important factor leading to the progression of CKD. For that reason, jackfruit is not good for patients with CKD Stage 3 and diabetes,due to its large amounts of sugar. Secondly, hyperkalemia is another common symptom in Stage 3 CKD. As mentioned in the second paragraph, hyperkalemia is so dangerous. What’s worse, jackfruit is rich of potassium. Therefore, patients with CKD Stage 3 should control the intake of jackfruit, if they have high potassium level.

Lastly, I would like to list some high-potassium fruits and foods for guidance.

Food Group High Potassium Foods
Fruits Avocado, bananas, cantaloupe, dried fruit, honey-dew melon, kiwi, mango, oranges and orange juice, papaya, prune juice
Vegetables Artichoke, dried beans and peas, pumpkin, potatoes and French fries, spinach (cooked), sweet potatoes, tomatoes and tomato juice, vegetable juices, winter squash
Dairy Ice cream, milk, yogurt
Miscellaneous Chocolate, molasses, salt substitute, seeds and nuts
