Is Walnut Good for Dialysis Patients with Diabetes and Kidney StoneAccording to traditional Chinese medicine theories, walnut is a good tonic for kidney, lungs and intestinal tract. However, it should be taken not so much by people who are on dialysis with diabetes and kidney stone. Why?

Properties in walnut

Walnut contains various nutritions. 63% of walnut is fat, 15.4% protein, 10% sugar, and calcium, phosphorous, iron and vitamins. However, for kidney disease patients, they are not recommended to take too many walnuts due to the rich protein. Since the severely damaged kidneys cannot filter the wastes produced after protein metabolism, taking too many walnut will burden the kidneys.

In addition, if diabetics takes lots of walnut will make their blood circulation thick, leading to obstructed blood circulation.

To sum up, walnut is not the best choice for dialysis patients with diabetes and kidney stone.

Other considerations

Kidney dialysis patients may experience large amount of leakage of protein, so they need also ensure they get enough high-quality protein resources such as egg whites, fish and milk.

In addition, they are very likely to develop anemia, so it is good for them to take folic acid supplement or rich-iron foods like greens.

One thing you should also know is that only diet restriction cannot solve the underlying problems. Either diabetes and kidney stone causing kidney damage should be treated from the root. That is, the damaged renal tissues should be restored. Therefore, you may as well try traditional Chinese herbs.

Traditional Chinese herbs

We choose right herbs that are suitable for the patient’s own condition. Then, putting these herbs into different therapies such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath and Blood Pollution Therapy. They works by improving blood circulation and repairing damaged kidney tissues, thus improving GFR (glomerular filtration rate) and enhancing kidney function.

Almost 30 years of clinic practices prove that our therapies are very natural and effective, and they can help Kidney Failure patients reduce the frequency of dialysis. I hope more patients can benefit from our natural treatments.
