Can Patients in Kidney Failure Stage Sugar-Free Products

We know that kidney failure stage patients are easily to develop into diabetes, and they have to keep a regular and healthy diet. Is it possible for them to take Sugar-Free Products? Will this lead to Diabetic Nephropathy?

Pay attention to diet is a good sign in treating kidney diseases, especially in treating Chronic Kidney Failure. But, sometimes we may step into a wrong way even if we plan a right one. I believe that there are many patients attracted by the name of SUGAR-FREE, and believe that there is no sugar in this kind of products. So, they can intake this kind of food without increasing their blood sugar. And, of course there are some patients believe that only avoid products with sweet test can we prevent intake extra sugar and control blood sugar in a suggested level. Well, they are not absolutely wrong, but they are not right at all.

Kidney failure patients do have a risk of getting diabetic nephropathy, but, it does not mean you can not eat products with sugar. It only means you have to control sugar ingestion less than 20g per day. And for sugar free products, they do not mean there is no sugar. They often use sugar alcohol to replace cucrose, glucose, maltose, fructose, but the final metabolism is gluocse, which will increase blood sugar. Besides, sugar-free products are made of rice, flour, and many lipa, which contain plenty of calorie. So, control the intake is necessary, instead of forbidden or without limitation.
