Can People with Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease Eat EggplantEggplant is a very common vegetable all over the world, and is very delicious. So, can patients with stage 4 CKD eat eggplant? Here we will talk about this in detail.

To begin with, understand eggplant.

There are much nutrition in eggplant, such as calories, protein, fat, vitamin A, B1, B2, C, E, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, sodium, fiber, etc.

Now see the point:

As is known to us, deposition of potassium and phosphorus occurs very seriously on patients with stage 4 CKD. In addition, sodium can has bad effects on blood pressure, increasing blood pressure, and high blood pressure follows patients with stage 4 CKD very closely. Thus, patients with stage 4 CKD are not suggested to eat eggplant in daily life.

Besides, low protein is needed for patients with stage 4 CKD, because protein produces urea nitrogen which is a waste when decomposed in body, which means that much protein can put more burdens on kidney, affecting kidney function and causing further damage to kidney.

Finally, water intake also plays a very important role for patients with stage 4 CKD. If patients with stage 4 have severe swelling, water must be limited in daily life. Because lots of water can aggravate swelling, and putting more pressure on kidney.

As a consequent, diet in daily life is very significant, and should be taken notice of by patients with stage 4 CKD. And taking regular exercise can be beneficial to them. Jogging, walking and swimming can be good choices which can be suitable for patients with stage 4 CKD.
