Is Cabbage Good for CKD patients

Is Cabbage Good for CKD patientsAs we know, CKD patients need to pay attention to their daily diet, which can help reduce their kidney burden and protect the residual kidney function. Cabbage is a common vegetable, which contains lots of nutrition and benefits for people, so it is favored by people. Then is cabbage good for CKD patients?

Here are some benefits of eating cabbage for people, which can help CKD patients to know whether they can eat cabbage or not.

1. Strengthen the immune system

Since cabbage is high in vitamin C, so it can help for patients to boost their immune system and prevent the possible infection and inflammations to kidneys.

2. Lower cholesterol

Indole-3-carbinol is a good element in cabbage, which can help prevent the liver from excreting an enzyme that can helps to carry cholesterol throughout the body, and this can help lower high cholesterol level.

3. Anti-inflammation

Cabbage also has the function of anti-inflammation, and this is mainly functioned by glutamine in cabbage. So eating cabbage can help people prevent inflammations and this is also good for CKD patients to prevent the inflammations in kidneys.

4. Improve bone health

Cabbage is rich in calcium, magnesium and potassium, all these will be good for the bones of people. Since CKD patients often suffer from renal osteopathy, so eating cabbage will be helpful for them.

5. Lower BUN level

When CKD patients have less than 50% kidney function, they may suffer from high BUN level, cabbage will be helpful for them to removing the uric acid from the body.

6. Lower high blood pressure

Cabbage is rich in potassium which has the function of expending the blood vessels and increase the blood circulation, which will help lower high blood pressure. However, since CKD patients often suffer from high potassium level because of their kidney damage, and high potassium level will cause heart problems for CKD patients. In this condition, for CKD patients who have high potassium level need to avoid cabbage.
