People who have high blood sugar and PKD is recommended to drink a glass of lime juice one daily.

4. Preserve kidney function

Lime has been used for hundreds of years as healthy fruit, because its vitamin C content is far higher than citrus. Vitamin C is a great antioxidant that can help keep kidneys from worsening. This is why kidney disease patients should supplement enough vitamin C.
