Can I Eat Kale Salad With CKD Stage 4Kale is loaded with all sorts of beneficial compounds and some of which have powerful medicinal properties. Well, can a person with chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 4 eat kale salad?

First, let’s see health benefits of eating kale salad.

1. Help anemia

Anemia is a common complication in CKD stage 4. To alleviate anemia, kale can do some help. Kale has more iron and helps more oxygen get to your blood and greatly helps those who are anemic.

2. Prevent bone loss

Low calcium and high phosphorus often happens in kidney disease. Low calcium easily results in bone problems. Kale has more calcium which aids in preventing bone loss, preventing osteoporosis and maintaining a healthy metabolism.

3. Antioxidant properties

Antioxidants are substances that help counteract oxidative damage by free radicals in the body. Antioxidants have been studied to have powerful cardioprotective, blood pressure lowering, anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant and anti-cancer effects to name a few. This is beneficial for preventing further kidney damage.

4. Lower cholesterol level

Kale contains bile acid sequestrants which can lower cholesterol levels. This should lead to a reduced risk of heart disease over time.

5. Rich source of magnesium

Eating plenty of magnesium may be protective against type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

From the above, we can see kale salad is ok for CKD Stage 4 patients. However, it does not mean all patients can kale salad. For example, although potassium in kale is able to reduce blood pressure and lower risk of heart disease, this does not allow patients with high potassium in blood to eat kale salad.
