But patients should not eat grapefruit when they suffer from hyperlipidemia or kidney failure. Besides, some substances in grapefruits can prevent enzyme activity to promote drug absorption. Thus, kidney patients had better not eat grapefruits when they are taking medications.

    5. Asparagus lettuce

    Asparagus lettuce is the most suitable food for kidney patients with high blood pressure and low potassium. Eating asparagus lettuce can improve the blood vessel tension and promote urine output. Moreover, it contains low sugar so it is also good for diabetic nephropathy patients.

    Although diet is important, it is only a supporting therapy. The radical treatment for CKD patients should be a systematic Chinese medicine treatment including Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, etc. These therapies can remove toxins and wastes out first to provide a clean blood environment.
