Is Broccoli Dangerous for Kidney Patients

Is Broccoli Dangerous for Kidney PatientsWhen you suffer from kidney disease, you should pay much attention to your diet. A healthy diet is very important for your kidney condition. Well then, is broccoli dangerous for kidney patients?

Broccoli is high in potassium. If your potassium level in blood is high, you had better limit or avoid its intake.

Why is high potassium dangerous for you?

It is the job of healthy kidneys to keep the right amount of potassium in your body. But when your kidneys are not working properly, potassium usually builds up in your blood, causing high potassium level. If your potassium becomes too high, it can cause an irregular heartbeat or a heart attach. In this condition, you need to limit certain foods that can increase the potassium in your blood to a dangerous level.

Broccoli is a high potassium vegetable. Besides, vegetables with rich potassium also include acorn, artichoke, bamboo shoots, refined beans, black beans, Chinese cabbage, carrots, lentils, legumes, dried beans and peas and okra, etc. Low potassium vegetables include alfalfa sprouts, beans, green or wax broccoli, cabbage, green or red carrots, cauliflowers, celery and eggplant, etc.

You can get some of the potassium out of high potassium vegetables. The process of leaching will help pull potassium out of some high potassium vegetables. But you should remember that leaching will not pull all of the potassium out of the vegetables. You must limit the amount of leached high potassium vegetables you eat.

Is there any way to reduce high potassium in kidney disease?

Yes, aside from paying attention to diet, the radical therapy for high potassium is to repair injured kidney tissues and improve renal function. Here we recommend Toxin-Removing Treatment which is a series of Chinese medicine treatments including Hot Compress Therapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Medicinal Soup, Mai Kang Mixture, Steaming Therapy and Enema Therapy, etc. Toxin-Removing Treatment first purifies your blood and then improves your renal function. When your renal function is improved, your high potassium level can be reduced radically.
