Tomato And Its Association With Kidney DiseaseYou must have heard that not all food is good for your kidneys. Some food can do harm to them, and even cause irreversible damage if you are not careful. Can people with kidney disease eat tomato?

Potassium and sodium levels balance is essential for kidneys’ health. So too much salt or too much potassium rich food can also harm the kidneys. Tomatoes are potassium rich food and should be avoided or limited by kidney disease patients.

Potassium and kidney disease

Potassium is a mineral which helps your nerves and muscles work well. Normally, healthy kidneys can keep the right amount of potassium in your body. However, if your kidneys are not functioning well, the potassium level can become too high or too low. This can affect your heartbeat. A very high level of potassium can cause your heart to stop beating. Therefore, potassium rich foods including tomatoes, bananas, prunes, oranges, fish, whole meal cereal should be moderate in their consumption if you have kidney disease.

People with kidney disease

Some people in the early stages of CKD do not need to limit their potassium intake, while others do need to restrict it. There is no benefit to restrict potassium unless your potassium levels are high. If you need to restrict potassium, your doctor will tell you how much potassium you should have each day so as to keep your potassium level in the healthy range.

Apart from limiting potassium level by diet, the radical way for normalizing potassium level should repair damaged kidneys and improve renal function. After many years of experiment, our hospital has made great breakthrough in the field of kidney disease and achieved incomparable effects compared with other hospitals and their treatment methods. On the basis of Chinese medicine, we have innovated Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy which can repair damaged kidney intrinsic cells and gradually improve renal function. Only in this way can potassium level be normalized.
