Is Peach Good for Polycystic Kidney Disease PatientsPeach or peach juice is favored by many people as well as some PKD patients. However, is peach good for people with Polycystic Kidney Disease?

Peach pulp contains rich nutritions, namely, protein, fat, sugar, calcium, phosphorus, iron, vitamin B, vitamin C and water. These nutritions determine people can get many benefits from peach consumption.

First of all, peach is always used to ease anemia, because peach is rich in iron. For people with Polycystic Kidney Disease, they are more likely to suffer from anemia, when large kidney cysts damage their surrounding kidney tissues. Eating peach or drinking peach juice is an easy method to alleviate their anemia.

We know high blood pressure usually occurs as the first symptom of PKD, and then how to lower hypertension becomes patients’ one big concern. Peach is proven to be effective on extending blood vessels and anti-coagulation, thus reducing high blood pressure. Therefore, PKD patients can take peach as their adjuvant therapy for hypertension.

Some PKD patients also complain of swollen leg, foot or ankles, because of fluid retention or heavy loss of protein in urine. In this condition, peach is a good choice, because of its low sodium but high potassium. Potassium is the mineral that PKD patients should take relatively more especially in early stage.

Whether your doctor has told you peach is good for you or not, remember to check several things before eating it. All of these are simple but really worth noticing:

- Don’t eat peach if you have gastrointestinal disorders.

- If you are allergy to peach, avoid it.

- Choose completely ripe peach to eat.

- Don’t eat too much one time.

- If your potassium or phosphorus level is higher than the normal, steer clear of it.
