Seaweed Health Benefits and Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)Seaweed health benefits have been recognized by many people. It is good for calcium absorption, increasing urine output, reducing blood pressure and high cholesterol level. However, is it good for Polycystic Kidney Disease patients?

Effects of seaweed on Polycystic Kidney Disease

In general, people with this kidney disease is recommended to take low-sodium, low-protein, limited potassium and phosphorous die. Even though seaweed has so many benefits, it is not recommended to be taken by Polycystic Kidney Disease patients. The reasons can include:

● Rich content of iodized salt. Since the kidneys have failed to discharge excessive sodium adequately, taking seaweed can increase the risk of water-sodium retention and leading to swelling or high blood pressure.

● High in potassium and phosphorous. Some of Polycystic Kidney Disease patients may have been diagnosed with abnormal level of potassium and phosphorous in the blood. In that case, they are not allowed to eat seaweed.

● Oxalate. Even though seaweed contains low oxalate, it is not good for PKD patients to eat. Once consumed, oxalate binds to calcium in your body and, under certain circumstances, it crystallizes to form mineral deposits and stones. Kidney stone is one of the common complication of Polycystic Kidney Disease.

Consumption tips

The cases may vary from individuals to individuals, so you’d better ask your doctor if the health benefits of consuming seaweeds outweigh any potential health risk.
