    Can CKD Patients Eat Chocolate

    Chocolate is very delicious food that all of us like to eat. but if you are diagnosed with CKD, can you eat chocolate? I think this is a very common question patients matter most. Now, this article will tell you whether you could eat it.

    In general, if you have CKD, your doctor might tell you to stay away from chocolate. In fact, this does not mean chocolate is harmful to kidneys but eating too much chocolate may increase the volume of phosphorus and cause many complications.

    The kidneys are vital for human survival. It can filter blood and remove wastes like creatinine and urea from body. However, if you have CKD, your kidney function will be affected and cannot work as normal. If you eat chocolate, the phosphorus level in your body will creep up and cause renal bone disease, anemia, internal environment disorder and so on.

    Generally, the amount of phosphorus in white chocolate is about 176mg, and the the dark chocolate with 70 to 85 percent cacao solids can be 308mg. Therefore, the level is high. If you limit the intake of phosphorus, symptoms of kidney insufficiency can be minimized.

    In addition, chocolate is also a kind of food with high calorie. If CKD patients eat too much, the occurrence of hyperlipidaemia will be increased.

    Therefore, in order to treat your disease early, you’d better not eat chocolate. What’s more, some other food with high-phosphorus should also be limited. It is better for you to eat a mild and nutritious diet in daily.

    In all, you’d better consult your private doctor before you eat chocolate. And if you are diagnosed with CKD, you should take it early and timely. Have any question? Please feel free to consult our online doctor or leave a message below.
