Thread: Are Peanuts good for kidney patients?

    Default Are Peanuts good for kidney patients?

    No pun intended.

    I also remember that time Jacky Cheung came to perform and this young patient was munching on it as it was supposed to be good for them?

    I THINK any patient on dialysis has no worries on what they can or cannot eat.

    Cause that's what my aunt said, when she was on it.

    If I remember my biology correctly, the function of kidney is to "filter" out the poison material in our food, then will convert to urine or faeces and release out from the body. If the kidney fail, then all these poison will not be converted and will stay inside the body.

    YES, it is good for the patients, in fact, for everyone!

    The kidney also produces erythropoietin, which is involved in the synthesis of red blood cells. Thats why patients with kidney failure need EPO injections, else they become anaemic

    i think peanuts = protein, so if excessive proteins in the body, get stored in kidney, become urea, den ureric acid... so not very good for kidney patients rite...

    sorry i dunno my biology well...
