Is Apple Good for Peritoneal Dialysis Patients

Is Apple Good for Peritoneal Dialysis PatientsJust like hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis is often used to prolong Kidney Failure patients’ life expectancy. Because peritoneal dialysis is usually done every day, the diet plan for patients on peritoneal dialysis is less restricted than that for hemodialysis patients. Apple, as one most common fruit in our daily life, is loved by many people including kidney patients. Can patients on peritoneal dialysis eat apple?

The nutritions of apple

Apple is one nutritious fruit that contains sugar, protein, potassium, calcium, phosphorus and some microelements. Because apple can bring a lot of benefits, most of us have heard that one apple a day keeps the doctor away. From this point, we can know apple can also bring a lot of health benefits for patients on peritoneal dialysis. They are:

- Improve patients’ immune ability: Apple is rich in vitamin C, one common antioxidant. Antioxidant can help boost patients’ immune ability and remove free radicals from the body. Therefore, patients can find the have more energy to protect the body from damage.

- Regulate calcium and phosphorus balance: When kidneys are unable to remove extra phosphorus, they may lack calcium. Then, patients are at a risk of bone disease, skin itching, and so on. Apple contains calcium, so they can supplement calcium and regulate their calcium and phosphorus level.

- Boost patients’ overall health condition: Apple can help protect the remaining kidney functioning tissues and other organs from damage, so they can achieve boosted life quality.

However, this doesn’t mean all patients on peritoneal dialysis can eat apple, so patients are suggested to consult the doctor in detail before eating this fruit. If patients have high potassium level or high blood sugar level, they are suggested to limit their intake.
