Should Someone Eat Kale If They Have 50% CKDIf Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients only have 50% kidney function, they are at Stage 3 CKD. Should someone with CKD Stage 3 eat kale?

Kale for kidney disease patients

If there are only 50 percent kidney function, it means the kidneys are moderately damaged. As a result, wastes and toxins in the blood cannot be filtered by glomeruli effectively. In that case, patients need to keep a restricted diet, including:

-Reduce sodium. High sodium depositing in the body will cause fluid retention that can cause swelling in extremities, shortness of breath or high blood pressure.

-Limit Protein intake. When protein breaks down, it can produce wastes filtered by kidneys, thus burdening on kidneys.

-Lower potassium and phosphorous. Kale is rich in potassium and should be avoided if patients have abnormal potassium levels in the blood. Other foods such as artichoke, refried beans, butternut squash, bamboo shoots, broccoli, brussels sprouts, and pumpkin, spinach are also high in potassium. Patients should avoid the above foods if they have only 50% kidney function.

How to improve kidney function?

Based on our researches and clinical practices, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs and Stem Cell Therapy.

● Stem Cell Therapy. Stem cells can help restore some kidney function because they can help form new renal tissues. In our hospital, Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital, we can provide four types of stem cells with different charges.

● Traditional Chinese Medicine. The main function of our herbal medicines is to increase blood circulation and repair damaged renal tissues. Then, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to function well. Some herbal remedies such as Maikang Compositions, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Acupuncture are good for patients to improve kidney function naturally.
