Can Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Consume Uva Ursi

Can Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Consume Uva UrsiUva ursi is a kind of herb often used to treat urinary problems. As we all know, one character of Nephrotic Syndrome is severe edema. Can Nephrotic Syndrome patients consume uva ursi?

Uva ursi is diuretic.

Healthy kidneys can remove the excess water from the body, but for Nephrotic Syndrome patients, there is something wrong with the kidneys. As a result, water retains in the body.

Uva ursi contains ursolic acid and powerful astringents, which makes it a mild diuretic so as to increase urine output and ease edema. Besides, uva ursi may help to flush out bacteria by promoting urination so as to reduce the risk of urinary tract infection. It has also been used to reduce the accumulation of uric acid and relieve pain of kidney stones.

Uva ursi helps reduce high blood pressure.

Diuretics are often used to treat high blood pressure. If you have high blood pressure with Nephrotic Syndrome, uva ursi may be helpful.

Uva ursi relieves kidney pain.

If kidney function impairs, the uric acid easily deposits in the kidneys, forming kidney stone. Due to the pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects of arbutin, uva ursi extract may also be used as a natural remedy to help relieve pain associated with kidney stones.


Uva ursi is regarded as safe when it is used in standard therapeutic dosage, however, it has side effects such as irritability, restlessness, insomnia, nausea, vomiting, headache, etc. In addition, uva ursi is effective only in alkaline urine, so you should not consume highly acidic foods when you consume uva ursi. Therefore, you had better consult your doctor before you use it to treat your kidney disease. Do not use medications at random in case that they have renal toxicity.
