Are Bananas Good for People With Chronic Kidney Disease

CKD Diet,CKD Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients are often on a strict diet. There are many restrictions on patients’ diet including fruits and foods. Well then, are bananas good for people with CKD?

As far as I know, elements like potassium, magnesium, etc, found in bananas and other fruits tend to put an additional load on the kidneys. Healthy kidneys keep the right amount of potassium in the body, and when kidneys are damaged, excess potassium can not be discharged timely, leading to high potassium. Therefore, for CKD patients, they are running high risk for hyperkalemia. And the intake of bananas is restricted for such patients.

Besides, other fruits with rich potassium include oranges, tomato, spinach, parsnips, beets, potato, sweet potatoes and white beans, etc. People with kidney disease should pay attention to these foods.

But above all, kidney patients need to treat kidney disease from root. The radical therapy for CKD is to repair kidney damage and improve renal function. Common western medicines have no such effects while systematic Chinese medicine treatments including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Medicinal Soup, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy, Steaming Therapy and Enema Therapy, etc. They first purify your blood through removing wastes and toxins from your body. This can give you a clean blood environment. Then Chinese medicines can arrive at kidney lesion directly to repair kidney damage and improve renal function through dilating blood vessels, improving blood circulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing nutrients. When renal function is improved, it can remove excess potassium from your body. Then patients can eat bananas when they want.
