Is Okra Good For Kidney Failure Patients

"My dad is about to have a kidney failure, so he goes on a dialysis every week, and he consumes a lot of okra. I was wondering if that will affect him in a negative way". This is a question from our mail box chinakidneytherapy@gmail.com. Well then, is okra good for kidney failure patients?

Is Okra Good For Kidney Failure PatientsHi, this is dr David. Different patient has different condition. Without knowing his condition very clearly, I can not say okra is good for him or not. I can give you some suggestion for your reference.

1. High potassium in okra

Okra is high in potassium. People with kidney failure can not remove potassium from their bodies. Once the potassium level is high enough, it can cause a cardiac arrest or heart attack. Thus, if your dad has high potassium level in blood, he needs to limit the consumption of okra. Moderation is allowed.

2. Rich vitamin C

Vitamin C is rich in okra. Increasing your intake of vitamin C-rich foods can support your immune function, prevent free radical damage and may help regulate blood pressure. This is able to slow down the progression of kidney failure.

3. Reduce kidney damage

One study found that regular consumption of okra can help prevent kidney disease. In the study, people who ate okra daily reduced clinical signs of kidney damage more than those ate a diabetic diet. This also ties in with diabetes, as nearly 50% of kidney disease cases are caused by diabetes.

4. Give you strong bone

Kidney failure patients tend to have weak bone. Okra contains folate which can build bone density and gives you field to fight osteoporosis. The strong bone gives you body more agility.

In summary, okra is good for kidney failure patients while people with elevated potassium level in blood should be cautious. If you doubt whether okra is good for you or not, you can send your medical reports to our mail box. Our experts will tell you if okra is allowed to you or not.
