Top 5 Healthy Foods For People With Kidney Failure

2015-01-19 15:20

Top 5 Healthy Foods For People With Kidney FailureFollowing a renal diet made up of kidney-friendly foods is important for people with kidney disease because they experience more inflammation and have a higher risk for cardiovascular disease. However, foods that contain antioxidants can help neutralize free radicals and protect the body. Here we will give you top 5 healthy foods for people with kidney failure.

1. red bell peppers

Red bell peppers are low in potassium and high in favor, but that is not the only reason why kidney failure patients can eat red bell peppers. These tasty vegetables are also rich in vitamin C and vitamin A, as well as vitamin B6, folic and fiber. Red bell peppers are good for you because they contain lycopene, an antioxidant that protects against certain cancers.

2. garlic

Garlic helps prevent plaque from forming on your teeth, lowers cholesterol and reduces inflammation. Garlic provides a delicious flavor and garlic powder is a great substitute for garlic salt in the dialysis diet.

3. apples

Apples have been known to reduce cholesterol, prevent constipation, protect against heart disease and reduce the risk of cancer. In addition, apples are high in fiber and anti-inflammatory compounds, and an apple a day may really keep the doctor away.

4. red grapes

Red grapes contain several flavonoids that help protect against heart disease by preventing oxidation and reducing the formation of blood clots. Resveratrol, a flavonoid found in grapes, is able to stimulate production of nitric oxide, which helps relax muscle cells in the blood vessels to increase blood flow.

5. egg whites

Kidney failure patients should consume high quality protein instead of high quantity. Egg whites are pure protein and provide the highest quality of protein with all the essential amino acids. For the kidney diet, egg whites provide protein with less phosphorus than other protein sources such as egg yolk or meats.

These foods are healthy for everyone-including family members and friends who do not have kidney disease or are not on dialysis. However, as for kidney disease patients, how much they can eat depend on their individual conditions.
