Is Parsley Good for Stage 4 Kidney Disease Patients

Is Parsley Good for Stage 4 Kidney DiseaseParsley is often seen in our daily life, and many people love to eat this vegetable. However, for patients with stage 4 chronic kidney disease, they should pay attention to choosing correct vegetables in their CKD Stage 4 Diet. Is parsley good for these patients?

In stage 4 kidney disease, kidneys have severe decline of glomerular filtration rate (GFR), so they are unable to filter waste products and toxins efficiently. Then, a series of problems occur. In this case, patients should control the intake of some nutritions including protein, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, fat and so on.

Just like most fruits and vegetables, parsley is rich in potassium, and about 100 g of parsley contains 693 mg of potassium. If patients with Stage 4 CKD have high potassium level in the blood, they should limit their consumption of parsley. If not, parsley can still bring the following health benefits for these patients.

1. Lower high blood pressure: With the decline of kidney function, blood pressure increases easily. If uncontrolled effectively, high blood pressure will speed up the aggravation of kidney disease into kidney failure and increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.

2. Ease swelling: For kidney patients, swelling is often resulted from fluid retention or protein leakage. Parsley has the diuretic property that can prompt kidneys to produce more urine, taking away more fluid. Finally, swelling can be eased.

3. Nourish the body: This vegetable is one nutrient food that contains various minerals, vitamins and so on. Most of these substances can help improve patients’ overall health condition.

4. Alleviate renal anemia: Just as the above mentioned, parsley is rich in minerals including iron, which is one material of red blood cells.

To be responsible for your safety, you had better consult the doctor online to determine how much parsley you can eat one time.
