    Can I Drink Bitter Gourd Juice with Stage 3 CKD

    2014-08-31 09:14| Font Size A A A

    Can I Drink Bitter Gourd Juice with Stage 3 CKD“I was told to develop a strict diet restriction so as to control the progression of Stage 3 CKD. I have a question: can I drink bitter gourd juice with this stage kidney disease?” These words come from one patient. Here let’s talk about this topic in this article.

    Stage 3 kidney disease means that there is moderate drop on the renal function. This is a critical period to take immediate measures to control the progress of illness condition. Patients will experience some symptoms and complications such as high blood pressure, high blood sugar, proteinuria, hematuria, poor appetite, fatigue, anemia and so on. As a matter of fact, bitter gourd juice indeed is good for stage 3 kidney disease patients. They can get the following benefits from eating bitter gourd.

    Lower blood sugar

    Diabetes is one of leading causes of kidney disease. Some kidney disease may prone to suffer from high blood sugar which can cause further kidney damage. The bitter gourd juice contains a rich charantin that is similar to insulin. It has a good effect on lowering the blood sugar. It can be an ideal beverage for stage 3 kidney disease with diabetes.

    Promote appetite

    Some patients with kidney disease may suffer from poor appetite because of the accumulation of the toxins in blood. The charantin and bitter principle in bitter gourd can help enhance appetite. What’s more, bitter gourd juice is a natural diuretic. Some patients may have a little urine. Eating bitter gourd can help increase urine output and relieve the swelling.

    Strengthen immune system

    In addition, bitter gourd is rich in vitamin C which can help improve immunity. And patients are able to fight against other diseases and infections.

    But what I want to stress is that not all stage 3 kidney disease patients can drink it freely. It still needs to depend on your own illness condition. Because it contains much potassium and phosphorus. If you have the hyperkalemia or hyperphosphatemia, you’d better avoid or at least limit intake of bitter gourd juice.
