Effects on of zucchini on kidney disease patients

Zucchini has abundant vitamin C, glucose and calcium. It has the function of increasing urine output and fighting against inflammation. More over, it is a kind of vegetable that has low phosphorous level, so it is allowed to be consumed for kidney disease patients. You can consult our doctors online for specific suggestion, or you can email to kidney-symptoms@hotmail.com and get reply within 24 hours.

Here is a general dietary guidance for patients with kidney disease

● Protein

Too much protein intake will burden the kidneys since it will produce much urea that is a kind of waste discharged by the kidneys. Meat, eggs and dairy products are not good for you. Choose low-protein foods like grains and fresh vegetables.

● Sodium

Restrict your sodium is very important. Impaired kidneys cannot excrete sodium with urine effectively, leading to water-sodium retention. As a result, you have high risk of having swelling and high blood pressure. Avoid foods that are rich in sodium, including processed meat, dried vegetables, canned soups, frozen dinners, bouillon cubes and table salt. You can replace sodium with spices and herbs such as coriander, cinnamon, turmeric, onions, etc.

● Phosphorous

Damaged kidneys have difficulty maintaining phosphorous balance. High level of phosphorous in the blood will hinder the absorption of calcium. This can lead to brittle bones and bone and joint pain. Avoid high-phosphorus foods such as cheese, sardines, cola soft drinks and peanut butter, while foods such as broccoli, non-cola soft drinks, sherbet and zucchini are good choices.

● Potassium

Abnormal potassium level can cause irregular heartbeat, muscle weakness, and even coma. You are required to eat less high-potassium foods like bananas, broccoli, chocolate, tomatoes, cantaloupe, prunes and mushrooms. Low-potassium alternatives include apples, watermelon, pears, cucumbers, grapes, cranberries, cherries and carrots.

Besides diet, appropriate treatment is more important. The goal of treatment should be improving kidney function. We are glad to give you some suggestions. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
