Is It Okay to Eat Peanut Butter for A Glomerulonephritis Patient

Is It Okay to Eat Peanut Butter for A Glomerulonephritis PatientPeanut butter is one condiment loved by many people. However, when making this condiment, people usually add some sodium into it. For glomerulonephritis patients, sodium is one mineral that they need to take in carefully. Is it good or harmful for glomerulonephritis patients to eat peanut butter?

To this question, different people hold different opinions.

Some people think peanut butter is good for glomerulonephritis patients.

Of course, the premise is not to add extra amount of sodium into peanut butter. When glomeruli are damaged, kidneys are unable to play their filtration function normally. Some nutritions and vitamins may be filtered out. Peanut is one nutritious food that can provide high-quality protein, various vitamins, unsaturated fatty acid and minerals for the body. Therefore, it can help strengthen patients’ body, improve their immunity and prevent inflammatory reactions within kidneys. From this point, these people conclude peanut butter is helpful for glomerulonephritis patients.

Some other people think peanut butter shouldn’t be recommended for nephritis patients.

In their view, peanut butter is made of peanut, which contains rich potassium and phosphorus. If kidneys are damaged severely, patients are more likely to have high serum potassium and phosphorus level. In this case, they should limit the intake of potassium and phosphorus, so peanut butter should be avoided. Besides, some peanut butter tastes quite salty that means it contains rich sodium. From this point, patients with glomerulonephritis should not eat peanut.

From the above analysis, we have known the reason that glomerulonephritis patients can eat or not eat peanut butter. If you have this problem, you had better consult the doctor online before you consume this condiment. To be responsible for your health and safety, doctors will give you the suitable amount and some other suggestions.
