Can Stage 3 Kidney Disease Patients Eat Whey Protein

Can Stage 3 Kidney Disease Patients Eat Whey ProteinWhey protein is the King of protein, and it extracts from milk. Patients with Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease are suggested to choose high-quality protein. Is whey protein a good choice for these patients?

The nutrient structure of whey protein

First of all, the nutrient value of whey protein is highest among various types of protein. General speaking, complete protein contains a variety of essential animo acids in high content. Animo acids are essential for the body but can’t be produced by the body, so they should be taken from foods. Whey protein just belongs to high-quality complete protein.

In addition to rich essential animo acids, whey protein also has two obvious advantages.

1. Whey protein can be absorbed easily, so it provide nutrition for the body quickly and reduce the burden on kidneys.

2. The content of fat and lactose is relatively low, and it contains beta milk globulin, alpha lactalbumin, immunoglobulin, and some other active ingredients.

Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease

At stage 3, kidneys have moderate damage, so patients should control their protein intake to reduce the burden. If patients’ urea level is normal, they are suggested to take in protein 0.8g/kg body weight every day. Otherwise, their protein intake should reduce to 0.6g/kg.

Whey protein and Stage 3 CKD

From the above analysis, we can conclude whey protein is one great source of protein for patients with stage 3 chronic kidney disease. This is because it can avoid the extra intake of saturated fatty acid and cholesterol and prevent cardiovascular disease. From this point, whey protein is beneficial for patients with stage 3 chronic kidney disease.

However, this doesn’t mean these patients’ protein intake should completely come from whey protein. To determine how much whey protein you can take in every time, you can consult the doctor online in detail.
