Chia Seeds for Uremia Patients Are chia seeds harmful for uremia patients? Kidney patients always ask us various dietary questions. They care about the diet very much. In this article, let’s have a look at whether chia seeds are good for patients with uremia.

3 reasons to add chia seeds to kidney diet:

1. Combat diabetes

Chia seeds are a natural remedy for type 2 diabetes because of its ability to slow down digestion. Diabetes is a leading cause of kidney disease. From this viewpoint, uremia patients can take chia seeds.

2. Improve heart health

Chia seeds can increase healthy cholesterol while lowering total, LDL and triglyceride cholesterol. This is good for heart health. Uremia patients need to have a healthy heart because heart disease is the leading cause of death than from uremia itself.

3. Improve your bone health

Bone problem is a common complication from damaged kidneys due to low calcium level in blood. Well chia seeds pack a punch in the calcium department. One ounce of chia has 18% of the recommended daily intake of calcium. This is a great way to prevent osteoporosis and other illnesses that challenge the integrity of your bone.

The above are some benefits of chia seeds to uremia patients. However, it does not mean all patients can take them. For example, patients should limit or avoid chia seeds if they have high potassium or phosphorus level in blood because chia seeds are loaded with abundant phosphorus and potassium.

It is vital for uremia patients to pay much attention to their diet. But it is not enough. The key point for uremia is to repair injured kidney tissues and improve the renal function. Here Chinese medicine treatments including Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Medicinal Soup, Moxibustion Therapy, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Steaming Therapy, etc can restore impaired kidney tissues and gradually improve renal function through dilating blood vessels, improving blood circulation, preventing inflammation and coagulation, providing nutrients and relieving renal ischemia-anoxia state.
