Is Artichokes Bad For Kidney PatientsAs we all know, chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients should pay more attention to their diet. A good diet is indeed good for preventing some symptoms and prolong patient’s lifespan. Are artichokes bad for kidney patients?

Medical uses of artichokes

Artichoke is a medicinal herb with diuretic and digestive properties. It stimulates appetite and diuresis. It is useful in preventing kidney disease. It helps in relieving abdominal pain, heartburn and bloating.

Artichokes also control blood sugars in diabetics. Diabetes is the first leading cause for kidney disease. Consuming artichokes helps reduce the risk for kidney disease.

Artichoke leaves reduce cholesterol levels and lower the chance of cardiovascular disease.

Vitamin C in artichokes makes it possible for the body to resist inflammatory reactions and also to prevent infection to a good extent. Inflammation and infection protection prevents further damages on kidneys.

However, not all kidney disease patients are suitable to take artichokes. Why?

Dangers of artichoke intake

Kidney disease patients usually have high potassium and phosphorus level in blood since the kidneys fail to maintain electrolyte balance. Artichokes are rich in potassium and phosphorus. Kidney disease patients usually are recommended to avoid or at least limit the intake of high potassium and phosphorus food including artichokes.

How to treat kidney disease?

The key to treat kidney disease is to repair injured kidney tissues so as to improve renal function. Western medicines cannot help you achieve that goal. Therefore, I recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy is an innovation of traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The active ingredients help repair injured kidney damage and improve renal function through expanding blood vessels, reducing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix. If you are interested in this therapy, you can consult our online doctor or leave a message to kidneycares@hotmail.com. We will reply you as soon as possible.
