Should Corn Be Avoided By Kidney Disease PatientsShould corn be avoided by kidney disease patients? Kidney disease patients should know what they can eat and what they should avoid. Well then, how about corn? Is corn available for kidney disease patients?

In addition to its delicious sweet taste, corn is high in fiber, low in fat, and a great source of essential nutrients offering an array of health benefits given below:

1. Alleviate anemia

Anemia is a common complication in kidney disease. Corn contains a great amount of vitamin B12 and folic acid as well as iron, which is one of the essential minerals which are responsible for forming new red blood cells. Eating corn can help alleviate anemia in kidney disease to some extent.

2. Prevent diabetes and hypertension

Diabetes and hypertension or high blood pressure are two leading cause of kidney disease. If you have diabetes or hypertension, you should take treatment timely. Corn has proven to be effective in reducing the signs of diabetes. The regular consumption of corn kernels helps in the management of non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus and protects against hypertension due to the presence of phenolic phytochemicals in whole corn.

3. Beneficial for heart

Heart disease is a major cause of death in kidney disease patients. Thus, it is essential for kidney disease patients to take treatment to protect against heart diseases. Corn oil is proven to have an antiatherogenic effect on cholesterol levels, thus protecting against heart diseases. Corn oil is very beneficial for the heart health as it has an optimal fatty acid combination, thus making omega-3 fatty acids to remove the bad cholesterol and replace them at the bonding sites. Under such a condition, it stops the arteries from becoming clogged, reduces the blood pressure and reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke.

4. Remove toxins from your body

With kidney disease, toxins and wastes often build up in your body. If left untreated, it can cause dangerous conditions. Corn silk with diuretic property replaces damaged kidney to discharge some toxins and wastes from the body.

Generally speaking, kidney disease patients can eat corn silk. However, it is not enough for corn to treat kidney disease. More importantly, we need to revive the kidneys and help restore their normal function. This is done by a systematic Chinese medicine treatment including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath and Mai Kang Mixture, etc. Which one will be used is based on your specific illness condition.
