Amino Acid Supplements for Kidney DiseaseAs we all know, nutrition balance is very important for everybody. Amino acid is such one kind of nutrition and is necessary for keeping a healthy body. It has two sources: Protein and amino acid supplements, which are good for kidney disease patients. Why? Read on, and you will find the answer.

The function of amino acid

Amino acid is a basic component of protein. It produces enzymes and is also involved in mood, concentration, sleep and a number of other physiological phenomena.

Why kidney disease patients need amino acid supplements?

Patients with kidney disease are always told to have a limited protein diet. As a result, many of them keep far away from protein. In fact, for kidney disease patients, the protein intake is limited instead of forbidden. Some foods such as lean meat, egg white, milk and fish are of low but high-quality protein and are good choices. If they take a low protein diet for a long term, they may be malnourished. Therefore, based on a low protein diet, they need to supply necessary amino acid, in order to improve the malnutrition situation and delay the progression of kidney failure.

What are the benefits of amino acid supplements?

When kidney disease patients are lack of protein intake, they may feel fatigue, lack of energy and sleep problems, depression and anxiety. Amino acid supplements can be used as fuels and are good for cells’ growth. Essential amino acids are processed and used by the body to make new proteins, which are then used to create new tissues in every system of the body. Amino acid supplements can improve the regeneration of new tissues to some extent.

Warning

You should pay attention to the amount of amino acid supplements.

On one hand, amino acid supplements can boost your protein intake, and then excessive protein will burden your kidneys, because protein creates wastes and toxins, affecting kidney function.

On the other hand, if you suffer from food allergies, some amino acid supplements might cause adverse reactions. For example, whey and casein proteins might trigger dairy allergies, and soy amino acid supplements are unsuitable for those with soy allergies.

To sum up, if you want to take amino acid supplements, you’d better consult your doctor. Our experts online can also recommend you an appropriate dose.
