The first reason is that eggplant is low in potassium, sodium and phosphorus. With the decline of kidney function, diseased kidneys may be unable to remove extra potassium, sodium and phosphorus. In stage 3, potassium and phosphorus are usually restricted, but patients should develop a low-sodium diet. If not, excessive amount of sodium may trigger or worsen patients’ high blood pressure or swelling.

The second reason is eggplant’s rich chlorogenic acid. This substance has high antioxidant activity that can shield kidney cells and other cells from oxidant, so eggplant can protect the remaining kidney functioning tissues and prevent further kidney damage.

The third reason is its rich fiber, vitamins and minerals. Eggplant is one great source of dietary fiber that can help improve patients’ appetite to make them have desire to eat more foods and regulate their digestive system. Stage 3 CKD patients also need to supplement vitamins, while eggplant is abundant in vitamin C, vitamin B and folate. Therefore, patients can get a lot of benefits from this vegetable.
