Can I Eat Vegetable Lasagna If I Have CKDChronic Kidney Disease (CKD) should follow a kidney-friendly diet. Vegetable lasagna is simple to make and very tasty. People all love to eat this diet. However, if one person suffers from CKD, can he or she still consume lasagna?

The health benefits of vegetable lasagna will reveal the wholesome potential of the food lie on the potential benefits of the ingredients in the blood.

1. Tomato

Tomatoes and tomato sauces and ketchups are indispensable in the diet. Tomatoes sauces and ketchups are rich in an antioxidant called lycopene which is a type of antioxidant chemical. It helps protect the cells attacked from free radicals. In this light, a person with kidney disease can eat vegetable lasagna to protect further kidney damage caused by free radical attack.

2. Calcium

The cheese in the lasagna is loaded with heaps of calcium, which is important for kidney disease patients who have bone problems like bone pain, bone fracture and osteoporosis.

3. Whole grains

Lasagna made with whole wheat or whole grains, which are much healthier than the usual refined grains. This is because these unrefined grains are rich in dietary fiber and is helpful for your heart safe and alleviating constipation in CKD.

4. Veggies

Various veggies can be added to your lasagna such as eggplant, tomatoes, carrots and beans. There are heaps of health benefits from these veggies, which will include chronic disease like diabetes and also alleviate and aid in stroke treatment. However, you should be cautious when choosing vegetables. You should choose some foods with low potassium and phosphorus level, otherwise they may aggravate your medical conditions.

Every thing has two sides, good and bad, so is lasagna. What I want to say is that not all kidney disease patients can eat lasagna. Before eating lasagna, you should consult your doctor or our online renal experts.
