Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2013-12-08 09:20

Is Coconut oil Beneficial for Kidney PatientsCoconut oil is famous for its nutrient values. It is popular in western countries like the United States and Canada. It is also used extensively in tropical countries especially India, Thailand, Philippines etc. However, it was questioned for its high saturated fat content. For kidney disease patients, who have many diet restrictions, can they eat coconut oil? Is coconut oil beneficial for their health? In the following, let’s look into some information about it.

Lower blood sugar

For kidney patients with diabetes, coconut oil can help improve insulin use within the body, so it has the function of handling blood sugar.

Lower cholesterol

Though coconut oil contains high saturated fat, its main content is lauric acid which protects your heart by reducing total cholesterol and increasing good cholesterol. It does not increase LDL and helps keep arteries flexible and prevent atherosclerosis.

Boost immune system

It contains antimicrobial lipids, lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid which have antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties, so it can boost the body’s immune system.

Prevent renal osteopathy

Renal osteopathy is also a symptom that many kidney patients suffer from. Coconut oil can increase bone strength by allowing better absorption of calcium, vitamin D, and other minerals.

Improve fatigue

Because kidney can not work properly, kidney patients often feel tired. Coconut oil can boost thyroid function helping to increase metabolism, energy and endurance.
What is more, coconut oil can also help you from heart disease, skin disease and control weight etc.

However, it does not mean that kidney patients can eat coconut oil. Whether they can eat or not and how much they can eat should depend on their state of illness. Before adding it to the diet plan, you had better consult your dietitian for advice. If desired, we can also help you.
