Why Egg White is Good for Kidney FailureAs we all know that egg white is considered as a good food to kidney failure patients, so they are recommended to eat egg white as much as possible by their doctors. However, many of them have no idea why egg white is good for their damaged kidney. Now, we will give you the answer about this question.

Egg is very common in our daily life and it is regarded as a necessary food to our body because of containing high protein. It has been always eaten owing to its abundant nutrients, especially among kidney failure patients. But one thing to keep in mind is that you only can eat egg white. This is because egg yolk is rich in neutral fat and cholesterol. If kidney failure patients eat it, which can not only increase metabolic product of urea, but also even causes uremia. So to the kidney failure patients, it is best to eat more egg white than egg yolk.

Protein is the nutrition to our body, but clinical shows that some protein is low in quality which can produce lots of wastes in our body. These wastes need to be discharged out of our body through kidneys, so these proteins are not recommended to the kidney failure patients as they can cause extra burden on kidney. However, egg white contains high quality protein and meanwhile causes fewer burdens on kidney, so it is highly recommended by doctors.

Since egg white is so good to our body, are the patients eating more and the better they are. The answer is NO. Proteinuria is a symptom of aggravated kidney failure when they ingest too much protein. Because of this reason, it is necessary to take a low protein diet for the kidney failure patients. How much egg white they can eat everyday depends on their specific illness condition.
