    Is Coconut Water Good for My Kidneys

    Questions :" I am just looking for the info about “is coconut water good for my kidneys?” By the way, I am a stage 3 chronic kidney disease patient. For my question, could you tell me the answer?"

    Time: by 2014-06-24 03:19 

    Expert Answer

    Hello, sir or madam. Thanks for your consultation. For your question, I will make a general explanation to you.

    Generally speaking, coconut water is beneficial for stage 3 kidney disease patients. However, everything has two sides, and there is no exception of this drinks. You can know the benefits and disadvantages from the following contents:

    Coconut water has a good antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity effect. For people with kidney disease, they are more susceptible to infections and inflammatory. Therefore, drinking moderate amount of coconut water is good for them.

    Coconut water can be considered as a natural diuretic which contributes to removing excessive water and eliminating edema.

    Coconut water is also widely used to treat dehydrate due to dysentery, cholera, diarrhea and stomach flue and electrolyte imbalance. What’s more, drinking it can supply enough fluid to the kidney cells, boost patients’ energy, increase the blood volume, prevent skin problems, etc.

    However, not all kidney patients can drink it freely. Because coconut water is rich in potassium and other minerals. If you have hyperkalemia, you’d better keep away it from your beverage lists.

    To give you an individualized advice, you’d better tell me your overall illness condition or attach your medical report to ckdstage@hotmail.com.
