Is Egg Good For 3 Stage Kidney Failure

Is egg good for kidney failure stage 3? Egg is one of the major sources of protein which helps your body perform well. However, too much or too little protein intake both are not good for kidney failure patients. Therefore, the question like whether it is good for kidney failure stage 3 patients to eat eggs. Actually the answer is that egg white is better than egg yolk for patients with kidney failure.

Why egg white is good for kidney failure stage 3 patients?

Egg white is high quality protein food which helps reduce the excessive urea nitrogen excretion. Also consuming high quality protein will reduce the burden of their moderately impaired kidneys.

Though egg white is good for stage 3 kidney failure patients, they should also limit the egg white intake everyday. If they take excessive protein, it will also put a strain on kidneys and worsen your kidney condition. The reasonable protein intake every day for kidney failure patients is 0.6 grams of protein per pound body weight.

Why kidney failure patients should stay away from egg yolk?

Egg white is high in cholesterol. For kidney failure patients, they are at a higher risk for hyperlipidemia. Therefore, kidney failure patients should not eat too much protein intake; otherwise it will aggravate hyperlipidemia.

In addition, egg yolk also includes rich trace elements like calcium, iron and phosphorus. For kidney failure stage 3 patients, they are more likely to have high phosphorus level in blood. Because of this, they should limit phosphorus intake and avoid egg yolk or eat little.
