Is Carrot Juice Good For A Person Who Suffers From CKDConsuming carrots are known to be good for the overall health and especially for the organs like skin, eyes, digestive systems and teeth. Well then, is carrot juice good for a person who suffers from chronic kidney disease (CKD)?

Yes, carrot juice is good for patients who have kidney disease and patients can get the following health benefits:

1. Keep blood pressure under control

High blood pressure is a complication of kidney disease. If left untreated, it may cause further kidney damage and speed up the disease into kidney failure. Carrots have potassium in it which helps balance the high levels of sodium associated with hypertension and keeps blood pressure under control. However, as for patients who have high potassium level in blood, they should limit or avoid the intake of carrot juice.

2. Purify the blood

In kidney disease, there will be lots of wastes and toxins in the blood. Toxins in blood invade kidney, leading to inflammation or proliferation of renal intrinsic cells, which damages kidney tissues. Besides, toxins in the blood may cause various kidney problems. In view of this, it is very important to purify blood. Carrots are rich in alkaline elements which purify and revitalize the blood.

3. Reduce the risk of heart disease

Heart disease is a leading cause of death in kidney disease. The high soluble fiber content in carrot helps reduce cholesterol by binding LDL, the bad cholesterol, and also increases the HDL which reduces blood clots and heart diseases.

What’s more, carrot juice is also beneficial for anemia, constipation, acidosis and water retention. But it is far from enough to treat kidney disease only drinking carrot juice. A medical treatment is required. Under this condition, kidney disease patients should try Chinese medicine treatment like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Immunotherapy and Mai Kang Mixture, etc. Gradually kidney damage can be repaired and kidney function will also be improved effectively.
