While helpful, dialysis may cause some side effects on kidney disease patients. Is pomegranate good for kidney dialysis patients?

Benefits

● Reduce risk of cardiovascular disease

Researches reported that patients on dialysis, in addition to their renal disease, also suffer from increased risks of diabetes (over 50 percent increased risk), high blood pressure (over 80 percent risk increase), and cardiovascular disease.

Drinking pomegranate juice is beneficial for reducing blood pressure and cholesterol level, so it is good for reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease which is life-threatening factor for kidney dialysis patients.

● Good resource of antioxidants

Pomegranate juice is known to be a good source of antioxidants. The patients who drank the pomegranate juice showed a reduction in both inflammation and damage caused by free radicals.

● Reduce complications of dialysis

The researchers say their findings suggest that pomegranate juice taken in controlled amounts with monitoring of potassium content may help reduce complications in dialysis patients. Patients with chronic kidney disease often need to restrict the amount of potassium in their diet to prevent potassium overload.

Considerations

Since pomegranate juice contain relatively high levels of potassium, and potassium overload is considered an important risk, especially for dialysis patients with dietary potassium restriction.

Therefore, I recommend you to take habitual pomegranate juice monitored by your dietitian and a nephrologist.

Tip

Dialysis is not the only way for Kidney Failure patients. Our hospital—Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital has committed to treating kidney disease by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The main treatment is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. It is applied by the nephrologist with the help of osmotic device.

This therapy can expand blood vessels and repair damaged renal tissues so as to improve kidney function. This therapy can give kidney dialysis patients remission to the greatest extent. Patients from more than 70 countries have benefited from this therapy, and you can also trust us.
