Can Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Eat Jackfruit

2014-09-03 01:55

Durian, also known as jackfruit, is a species of tree and is native to parts of South and Southeast Asia. This kind of fruit has been cultivated in Indian rainforests. In some certain areas, jackfruit is widely welcomed due to its acquired taste. Durian is also the national fruit of Bangladesh. Many patients especially those in Asia would ask can a Nephrotic Syndrome patient consume jak? Well, this article is for answering that question and also its reason.

Jackfruit is rich in nutrition, and also could tonify spleen and Qi according to the Chinese medicine. Additionally, jak enhances one’s kidneys, invigorates the blood circulation and is the perfect fruit for those who are tortured by painful menstruation. God, for such a perfect fruit, how could it against patients with Nephrotic Syndrome? Still, the answer is negative. Although durian obtains so many good qualities, but remember this, going too far is as bad as not going far enough. The reason why jackfuirt isn’t suitable for Nephrotic Syndrome patients is exactly because of its good qualities.

Other than this, durian is rich in potassium, which can be dangerous for patients with no matter Nephrotic Syndrome or any other kidney problems. The content of potassium in 100g of jackfruit is 261mg! Wow, that’s way too much for kidney impairment patients. Got it? That’s one reason why we don’t recommend those patients consume too much durian. Furthermore, staying away from this fruit as much as possible is very much helpful.
