Is It OK For a Patient of CKD to Have Cauliflower and CabbageAs the old saying goes in China “A closed mouth catches no flies”. If we do not pay attention to what we eat or drink, we may get sick due to wrong diet. People with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) should keep a restricted diet. Is it OK for a patient of CKD to have cauliflower and cabbage? Follow me to find the answer.

Effects of cauliflower and cabbage for CKD patients


Except for abundant vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, rich benzpyrole and thiocyanate are also found in cauliflowers. These substances are all good for eliminating wastes and toxins in the body, thus reducing the burden on the kidneys. The best way to consume cauliflower is to take the boiled type with peppers and salt. Do not eat too much salt that will damage your kidneys.


As one of the super vegetables for persons with Chronic Kidney Disease, cabbage is so popular among them since it contains rich vitamin C, vitamin E and carotene. The total amount is three times more than tomatoes. Several phytochemicals can help with elimination of free radicals. For those who have End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) on dialysis, they are recommended to take more cabbages.

Now, you can see that persons with Chronic Kidney Disease are OK to take cauliflower and cabbages.

Dietary guidance for people with Chronic Kidney Disease

Yet, in the advanced stages of Chronic Kidney Disease, especially Kidney Failure, patient need to increase the intake of high-quality protein intake to supply energy for them.

3. Potassium and phosphorous
