    Is Coconut Oil Good for CKD Patients

    diet & fitnessCoconut oil is a very nutritious food that is popular in tropical countries. And it is thought to be helpful for human health. But is coconut oil good for patients with CKD? Now, follow us to find the answer below.

    CKD is short for Chronic Kidney Disease which can be caused by many factors. When there are pathological change of kidneys for more than three months, or your GFR is lower than 60mL/min, you may be possibly attacked by Chronic Kidney Disease. What’s more, it can progress gradually. If not well controlled, a lot of complications affecting all body systems will be likely to happen.

    Usually, the diet of CKD patients are strictly limited. What about coconut oil? Coconut oil is made of coconut which is sweat and delicious. A study shows that eating some coconut oil can be helpful for the kidney disease patients due to its effective function to build up immunity and bactericidal effect.

    Besides, coconut oil contains antimicrobial lipids, lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid which have antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties. The human body can convert lauric acid into monolaurin which research has supported as an effective way to deal with viruses and bacteria that cause kidney diseases.

    Coconut oil is also very effective to fight against infections. So it can slow down the progression of kidney disease and prevent complications. besides, it helps to dissolve kidney stones as well.

    From the above, we can see that it is helpful for CKD patients to eat some coconut oil in daily life to protect kidney function. But pay attention to limit the amount. For coconut oil is rich in protein, too much coconut oil intake may aggravate proteinuria.

    Therefore, we can make a conclusion that coconut is helpful for CKD patients. But it is not a treatment method. So it is essential for you to go to the hospital to check your kidney function and treat it timely and effectively.
