This news gave people who like cantaloup a warning, and they will be more cautious when taking the cantaloup. Moreover, if you are suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), especially those in the end stage, you should think more about the question.
Is cantaloup suitable for patients with Chronic Kidney Disease?
The quantity of Potassium ion in a cantaloup is very high, and there is about 250mg potassium in each 100g cantaloup, which is a hazard to the end stage Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) sufferers. When Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) gets into its end stage (End Stage Renal Disease(ESRD) - Can End-stage Kidney Disease Be Reversed or Improved), which is also called the renal failure stage, the renal function of excretion and regulation will decrease and the metabolism disordered, manifesting by little urine or even no urine. On this occasion, the potassium in the body can not be excreted through urine, and gradually the retention of potassium may result in Hyperkalemia.Is There Any Medicine to Cure Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 3 Is There a Natural Remedy for CKD
