Corn is a whole grain food, high in fiber, low in fat, a source of essential nutrients and only about calories per medium ear. A kidney patient can get the following benefits from corn:

1. Lower the risk of heart disease

Dietary fiber as part of an overall healthy diet helps reduce blood cholesterol levels and may lower your risk of heart disease. It is the insoluble fiber that binds to cholesterol preventing it from being absorbed into the bloodstream. A good heart is able to reduce the risk of death in renal patients. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in kidney patients.

2. Prevent constipation

Constipation is a common complication from kidney disease. Corn is rich in insoluble fiber which is responsible for promoting regularity and helping preventing constipation by speeding up the passage of food and waste through the intestines and by absorbing water to keep stools soft. Kidney patients can eat corn and other foods with insoluble fiber to alleviate constipation.
