Can Kidney Failure Patients Eat Onion

Can Kidney Failure Patients Eat OnionOnion is one basic flavoring in many cooked dishes. When coming to a healthy diet for Renal Failure patients, most patients think of it. Well, is onion beneficial for kidney failure patients? Can these patients eat this vegetable?

When kidney disease develops into kidney failure stage, meal plan plays a quite important role to affect the progress of patient’s illness condition. A kidney-friendly diet can help manage patients’ complications and slow down the aggravation rate of kidney damage, while a kidney-harmful diet may worsen patients’ illness condition.

Onion is low in potassium that is beneficial for renal failure patients. When kidneys are unable to excrete extra potassium, high potassium level in the blood will cause a series of problems. In view of this, onion won’t increase the burden on kidneys.

Onion is rich in flavonoids, especially quercetin. This substance is a powerful antioxidant that can help protect remaining kidney functioning tissues from further damage and reduce the risk of heart disease and various cancers.

Onion contains abundant chromium. As kidneys fail to work, they are unable to maintain proper protein metabolism. Chromium is one mineral that can help maintain proper protein metabolism.

What’s more, onion is also good to keep cardiovascular health, improve patients’ health, kill bacteria and boost kidney patients’ immunity. All of these benefits are good for renal failure patients. From this analysis, we can know eating correct amount of onion is beneficial for these patients.

In addition to onion, many other foods are also good for patients with renal failure. For example, cauliflower, cabbage, red bell peppers, olive oil, and so on, are helpful to protect kidneys and not reduce the burden on kidneys.
