Is Carrot Juice Good for Nephrotic Syndrome

Is Carrot Juice Good for Nephrotic SyndromeBecause of the delicious taste and rich nutrient value, carrot is favored by people all over the world. But for Nephrotic Syndrome patients, they lose the right of enjoying all foods. Is carrot juice good for Nephrotic Syndrome?

Carrots are good for Nephrotic Syndrome patients.

You may often eat carrots, but their health benefits are often ignored. Now let’s have a quick look.

-Reduce the risk of heart disease

Heart disease is a common complication of Nephrotic Syndrome, because of high cholesterol level in the blood. Pectin in carrots lowers the serum cholesterol levels. Besides, carrot juice has highly cleansing power, which can scrubs away even the old build-up of arterial deposits so as to reduce the risk.

-Improve anemia

Kidney patients often have anemia because the damaged kidneys can not secrete erythropoietin to produce red blood cells. Carrot’s molecules are closest to human’s hemoglobin molecules, making it very beneficial in blood-building.

-Alleviate edema

Nephrotic Syndrome patients often have severe edema. Carrot juice is diuretic and drinking such a kind of juice helps to eliminate excess fluid from the body, reducing water retention.

-Boost immune system

Even if your Nephrotic Syndrome has been brought under control, infection or cold calls it back again. Carrots are packed with rich vitamin C, which can increase the production and performance of white blood cells and build resistance to various kinds of infections.

Carrot juice has other health benefits, for example, it can cleanse the liver to reduce the workload of kidneys, it can aid in protein building and bone health so as to reduce the chance of renal bone disease, it can also help digestion and constipation. Space limited, so we do not list all of them here.


Though carrot juice has so many health benefits for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. They should avoid intake of excess carrot juice. After all, it contains a lot of water. Too much intake of water may worsen edema. Therefore, you had better consult your doctor to make sure how much carrot juice you can take. If desired, please contact our online doctor who can give you some suggestion as well.
