Can Chronic Kidney Failure Patients Eat Persian Walnut

Can Chronic Kidney Failure Patients Eat Persian WalnutPersian walnut, also known as English walnut, is the most common type of walnuts. This nut not only tastes very good but also provide us with tremendous amount of health benefits. However, is it OK to eat Persian walnut with chronic kidney failure?

Because Persian walnut belongs to nut family, chronic kidney failure patients should eat it carefully for its rich potassium and phosphorus. When kidneys can’t eliminate extra potassium and phosphorus from the body normally, excessive amount of potassium and phosphorus will build up in the blood that will cause many other problems such as irregular heartbeat and skin itching. In this case, chronic kidney failure patients should control their intake of potassium-containing and phosphorus-containing foods. From this point, kidney patients are recommended to make sure how much Persian walnut they can eat, before eating it.

After determining the amount to eat, patients with chronic kidney failure can get the following health benefits from walnut.

One good source of antioxidants. Ellagic acid, melatonin, vitamin E, polyphenolic compounds and carotenoids in Persian walnut all serve as antioxidants. They can help combat against aging and inflammatory reaction within kidneys.

Benefits of walnut for hair. With the progress of chronic kidney failure, patients are more likely to suffer from hair loss. Micro nutrients in walnuts can help prevent hair fall from happening and strong hair.

Diabetes prevention. Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney disease especially end-stage kidney disease. A research shows that regular consumption of walnuts is beneficial for maintaining insulin levels, so it is good for diabetics.

Besides, Persian walnuts are also able to boost brain functioning, reduce stress, improve skin condition and so on. However, just like other nuts, chronic kidney failure patients can’t eat walnut freely. Remember extra Persian walnuts will cause some side effects.
