Konjak contains many minerals such as phosphorus and potassium. With decline of kidney function, impaired kidney fails to discharge waste products and toxins from the body, and if you take konjak food in large amounts, excessive phosphorus and potassium will accumulate in your body and lead to a series of discomforts.
