2015-06-03 09:52

Q:

Anyone who has had a kidney transplant take a probiotic? If so did your nephrologist say it was ok? Just wondering because I am trying to love a healthier lifestyle and bought some today. Read the package and it is said not to take if your immunocompromised.

A:

Can Kidney Transplant Patients Take A ProbioticProbiotics do not work directly on the immune system. They promote health gut bacterial flora, and more and more science is showing that healthy gut bacteria improves the functioning of the body. One of the more promising areas is a team that recently mapped all the proteins in the body, and are starting to understand how and why the expression or suppression of proteins influence health and wellness. 99% of warnings on labels are to protect the company from liability, not you from harm. We all know to not dry your hair with a blow dryer in the shower. Still, it is always good to check with your doctor if you have questions, and if they say something you do not understand or think you might not agree with, ask some question. The best probiotics are probably culturelle and florastor. 99% of hospital formularies specify one or the other, or both sometimes.

In addition, probiotics are used for kidney health. Certain probiotic microorganisms can utilize urea, uric acid and creatinine and other toxins as its nutrients for growth. Overloaded and impaired kidneys have a buildup of poisonous wastes in the bloodstream. Probiotic microorganisms multiply, thereby creating a greater diffusion of these uremic toxins from the circulating blood across the lining of the intestinal walls into the bowel.

However, we cannot say all patients after kidney transplant can take probiotics. Whether you can take probiotics or not depends on your specific conditions. Thus, you should get the permission from your doctor before taking probiotics. If you have any question, you can consult our online doctor directly or leave a message below. We will reply you as soon as possible.
