Get facts on ghee

Ghee is a dairy product that is widely used in India. It has many health benefits. It contain abundant saturated fatty acids but short of chain fatty acids. This makes them easy to digest unlike the saturated fats found in animal meats which are difficult to digest. More over, it contains soluble vitamins such as A, D and E and hence can benefit vegetarians.

However, I do not recommend kidney disease patients take ghee, because it will produce wastes that will burden the kidneys.

Dietary guidance for kidney disease patients

● Limit fluid intake. Impaired kidneys cannot maintain water balance, resulting in excessive water building up in the body that leads to swelling, or frequent and urgent urine. Therefore, some patients are required to limit the water intake.

● Controlled protein. High quantity of protein will produce some by-products that are discharged by the kidneys. Consult your doctor about how much water you can take each day.

● Eat less potassium and phosphorous level. Once the kidneys are damaged, they also lose the function of maintaining electrolyte balance. Abnormal potassium and phosphorous will lead to some serious complications, so they should be taken within closely monitoring.
