End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) is characterized by severe kidney damage. A good diet is indeed good for preventing some symptoms and prolong patient’s lifespan. Are artichokes safe for End Stage Renal Disease patients.
Medical uses of artichoke
The leaf, stem, and root are used for medical purposes. Artichoke is used to for high cholesterol, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), kidney problems, anemia, fluid retention (edema), arthritis, bladder infections and liver problems.
However, not all kidney disease patients are suitable to taking artichoke. Why?
Dangers of too much artichoke intake
People at the end stage of kidney disease are always have abnormal potassium and phosphorous levels since the kidneys have failed to maintain electrolyte balance. Excess phosphorous cannot be discharged by the kidneys.
Artichoke contains protein 2.8g, calcium 51mg, phosphorous 69mg in per 100 grams of edible parts.
Therefore, whether you can take artichoke is based on your blood phosphorous level. You’d better take a blood test and consult your doctor about the specific dosage. You can also send you test report to email@example.com, and our doctors can give you some suggestions.
Recommended foods for End Stage Renal Disease patients
Vegetables: Cabbage, cauliflower, raw onions, lettuce, cucumber, etc.
Fruits: Cranberry, pomegranate, apple, red grapes, cherry, etc.
Treatment for End Stage Renal Disease
The key to dealing with kidney disease is to repair damaged renal tissues, so as to improve kidney function. Over-the-counter medicines cannot help you achieve that goal. Therefore, I recommend you to take Traditional Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy is an innovation of hundreds of Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCMs). The reasons why our experts choose these herbs are their functions. They can expand blood vessels, reduce inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes. In fact, all these benefits are to improve blood circulation and improve ischemia and anoxia in kidneys.
