The Effects of Sea Cucumber on Kidney DiseaseSea cucumber is known as a rare tonic and many patients want to take this food to enhance their body. What are the effects of sea cucumber on kidney disease? You can get the answer from this article.

First of all, sea cucumber is a good tonic for healthy people due to its various nutrition values. It contains low level of cholesterol and rich in protein. In addition, its meat is tender to be digested. Therefore, it is good for the elderly, children and weak persons.

However, for kidney disease patients, sea cucumber is not OK to be eaten. When they have kidney disease, they must have a kidney function decline. Under such condition, the kidneys cannot discharge wastes such as creatinine, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), which are the productions of protein metabolism. Therefore, patients with kidney disease are always required to have limited protein intake. Here I mean low-quality protein. Foods that contain high-quality protein are recommended.

Sea cucumber contains large quantity protein, most of which are known as collagen. Collagen is a kind of low-quality protein, containing less necessary amino acids. Some of the contents of sea cucumber cannot be used to repair the damaged cells. Those useless substances can only be supplied for producing energy, while over calories in the body will cause metabolic disorders. Therefore, if you want to depend on sea cucumber to improve your kidney function, you are totally wrong.

What’s more, if you also have acute enteritis, dysentery, cold, cough or loose motions, you are forbidden to eat cucumbers.

Foods like white egg, milk and lean meat are good for patients with kidney disease, because these foods are rich in high-quality protein.
