Why Cannot Dialysis Patients Eat Chocolate

2015-09-02 16:38

Why Cannot Dialysis Patients Eat ChocolateChocolate is one of the world’s favorite foods. However, people on dialysis are not allowed to eat chocolate. Here I will tell you the reason why dialysis patients cannot eat chocolate.

Kidney disease and phosphorus

Normal working kidneys can remove extra phosphorus in your blood. When you have kidney disease, your kidneys cannot remove phosphorous very well. High phosphorus levels can cause damage to your body. Extra phosphorus in your body causes body changes that pull calcium out of your bones, making them weak. Thereby, kidney disease patients are easy to get bone diseases like bone pain, bone fracture and osteoporosis.

Kidney disease and potassium

When kidneys fail they can no longer remove excess potassium, so the level builds up in the body. High potassium in the blood is called hyperkalemia, which may occur in people with advanced stages of kidney disease.

Phosphorus and potassium in chocolate

Chocolate is high in both potassium and phosphorus. Dialysis patients should avoid chocolate and other foods with high potassium and phosphorus including dairy products, seeds, nuts and whole-grain foods.

Dialysis patients must follow a restricted diet. Besides, dialysis may also cause some side effects such as nausea, vomiting, muscle cramp and low blood pressure, etc. In view of this, many patients would like to look for alternative remedies. What are the alternative remedies? There are many alternative remedies such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Steaming Therapy and Mai Kang Mixture, etc. All these can help slow down the progression of kidney disease and repair inured kidney tissues as well as improve renal function. When kidney function is improved, dialysis frequency can be reduced or even be avoided. Patients can live a high quality life.
