Can Nephropathy Syndrome Patients Eat Oranges

Can Nephropathy Syndrome Patients Eat OrangesIn our daily life, oranges are loved by many people not only because it is rich in various nutritions, but also due to its delicious tastes. However, does this mean everyone can eat oranges ? Can nephropathy syndrome patients eat oranges? The following may tell you the answer.

Orange has sweet and sour flavor, and it is good at quenching people’s thirst, moistening lung, stimulating appetite and regulating vital energy. Besides, orange contains rich proteins, organic acid, vitamin and essential elements for human body such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and sodium. Since it is so beneficial, can nephropathy syndrome patients eat oranges?

For nephropathy syndrome patients, hyperkalemia is a common symptom. As we all know that orange contains high level of potassium and when patients eat too many oranges, excessive potassium will build up in their body, finally some problems would occur, such as bradycardia, ventricular fibrillation or even cardiac arrest which would become life-threatening.So nephropathy syndrome patients are not recommended to eat orange in their daily life.

Here is a list of common foods that have high level of potassium, hope it can help you:

Melons, bananas, elaborated, apple, orange, lemon, apricot, plum, peanut, melon seeds, raisins, laver, mushrooms, dried dates, lily, cauliflower, rape.

However, if you really want to eat oranges, you must control the amount of oranges intake strictly. In fact, though the reasonable diet plays an important role in slowing down the development of nephropathy syndrome to a certain degree, a effective treatment can help to repair the damaged kidney and improve kidney functions from the root.
