Almond Is Good for People with Polycystic Kidney DiseasePeople with Polycystic Kidney Disease are always recommended to eat some nuts because of their rich nutritions and great benefits. Among all nuts, almond is very common in our daily life. The reason why we say almond is good for people with PKD is because it has many healthy benefits.

Almond can help control the complications of PKD

Lower high blood pressure

As cysts in both kidneys grow bigger and bigger, they will impair kidney functioning cells and causes some complications. It is revealed that about 60% of people who have PKD have high blood pressure by age 20-30. Potassium present in almond and low sodium can help regulate blood pressure.

Regulate cholesterol

With the changes of lifestyle, high cholesterol level is a common healthy problem for PKD patients. Regular consumption of almond helps to increase HDL and LDL, thereby effectively controlling cholesterol level.

Boost energy

People with advanced PKD usually feel fatigue even though they don’t do any exercise, so boosting energy is very important for them. Almond contains rich manganese, copper and riboflavin, all of which are good to boost energy.

Ease pain

Back pain is a common complaint of PKD patients, because the enlarged kidney cysts oppress their surrounding tissues and nerves. The benzoin produced by almond has a function of painkiller. Therefore, some patients try to eat almond seed to ease their back pain.

Almond also has many other healthy benefits

It is reported that almond has a benefit of anti-tumor, lowering high blood sugar, prevent constipation, anti-inflammation, and so on. If you have these symptoms, almond is a natural remedy for you.

However, just like other nuts, almond is high in potassium and phosphorus that may need to be avoided if excess potassium or phosphorus builds up in your body. Therefore, you had better enjoy it with the guideline of doctor.
