Can Kidney Disease Patient Consume Orange

Orange,Kidney DiseaseOrange is well knowns for its high concentration of vitamins. And It is delicious and juicy. Can kidney disease patients consume orange? It depends on patient’s potassium levels.

Besides a variety of vitamins, orange also contain rich potassium. This is the reason why it confuses kidney disease patients.

Kidneys are two fist-sized organs that locates on the lower back of the body. Besides, removing the waste products from the blood, normal kidneys also help ship out the extra potassium and keep potassium at a normal level (3.5~5.5 mEq/L).

Potassium comes from the foods we eat every day. Healthy kidneys remove excess potassium in the urine to help maintain normal levels in the blood. High potassium is a common problem in kidney disease patients, especially for these who are in advanced stage. This is because when kidneys are diseased, the excessive potassium will build up in the blood. High potassium levels called hyperkalemia, which can be dangerous. It may cause weakness, heart failure, sudden death, nausea, slow pulse, numbness, irregular heartbeat etc.

If your potassium is high, you are not suggested to consume orange for its high potassium. Besides, other fruits, such as Mango, banana, avocado, cantaloupe, grapefruit, guava, kiwi, melon, papaya, are not good choices.

As foods are the major resource for potassium for the body, the foods with low potassium will be suggested for people with advanced Kidney Disease. (Email to and get the low potassium food list from dietitian).

Not every patient with Kidney Disease should avoid orange. If your potassium level stays in the normal range, moderate intake is okay. You are suggested to visit your doctor regularly. He or she can help monitor your potassium levels and determine the available fruits and vegetables for your own conditions.
