How Milk Is Helpful in Decreasing Blood UreaMilk is one of common food in our daily life and it is the most ideal natural food. It is called “white blood” by human due to its nutritions. Then, how milk is helpful in decreasing blood urea?

Before answer this question, I would like to tell you some information about high blood urea. High blood urea is easy to be induced by kidney damage and kidney failure. Urea nitrogen is the metabolic product of protein in the body. With decline of kidney functions, they fail to function properly and cannot discharge these metabolic wastes timely, resulting in deposition of a large amount of urea nitrogen in the blood, thus causing the elevated blood urea. Of course, high blood urea can be caused by other factors, such as a high-protein diet, trauma, infection, fever, malnutrition and so on. For kidney disease patients with high blood urea, firstly, they should avoid any risk factors (such as to prevent infections) and control protein intake. After knowing the cause of high blood urea, nextly, I will analyze the nutritions of milk.

Milk contains many nutritions, including 87.5% water, 3.5% fat, 3.4% protein, 4.6% lactose and 0.7% mineral salt. There are as many as twenty types of amino acids within milk and in these amino acids, eight kinds of amino acids cannot be synthesized by human body. Besides, protein in milk is “total protein”.

From this analysis we can know, milk contains a large amount of protein. However, kidney disease patients with high blood urea are generally required a high-quality and low-amount protein diet. Because of urea in blood is the end product of protein metabolite, limiting intake of protein contributes to reducing production of urea. So milk is often not recommended to kidney disease patients with high blood urea. However, lactose within milk can help to regulate gastric acids and promote gastrointestinal motility and secretions in digestive glands. And if patients have proteinuria, protein intake should meet the protein loss which helps to overcome hypoproteinemia.

All in all, milk has both benefits and disadvantages for kidney disease patients. If your blood urea is induced by kidney disease, you must be cautious when drinking milk. If you have any doubts, please leave a message below or consult with our online doctors directly.
