Is Quinoa Recommended for Patients with Stage 4 CKD

Is Quinoa Recommended for Patients with Stage 4 CKDAs we all known, Stage 4 CKD patients have to pay more attention to their daily diet, because a well planed diet can help reduce burden and protect their kidneys. So patients will wonder whether they can take quinoa in their daily diet.

Actually, quinoa is the world’s most popular “superfood.” it is loaded with protein, fiber and minerals. Here are also many benefits for CKD Stage 4 patients if they have a appropriate amount of intake.

Lower high blood pressure

Hypertension is a common symptom in CKD, and the unwell controlled high blood pressure also will cause further damage to kidneys. Taking quinoa can help dilate blood vessels, and regulate blood pressure, which will be beneficial for CKD patients.

Reduce kidneys’ burden and supply necessary nutrition.

Quinoa contains high quality protein, which will be a good choice for CKD patients to satisfy their body needs. Because high-quality protein will produce less wastes in blood, so it can reduce kidneys’ burden. What’s more, sufficient high-quality protein intake also can prevent malnutrition.

Lower high cholesterol level

Quinoa also is rich in fibers which can help regulate blood sugar and lower high cholesterol level, which can help protect heart and prevent cardiovascular disease.

However, that does not mean all patients can take the food freely. Since the specific illness condition will be different from case to case, so CKD Stage 4 patients need to take quinoa depending on their own illness condition. For example, if patients have high phosphorus level in blood, they may need to limit the quinoa intake, because too much phosphorus intake will be harmful for CKD patients.
