Minimal Change Disease(MCD) is a common kidney disease which always occurs in children. It is also the leading cause of nephritis syndrome in kidney disease. Well-managed diet plays an important role to delay the progression of MCD. Then is it OK for me to drink fruit juice with MCD? Let’s learn it together.

What kind of fruit juice can I drink with MCD?

Orange juice

A new study shows that a daily glass of orange juice may help prevent recurrent kidney stones better than other citrus juices like lemonade. And it can help delay the progression of MCD with high vitamin C and microelement.

Lemon Juice

Lemon juice helps to dissolve kidney stones, especially those formed by the deposit of uric acid, says Dr. Roger Sur of the University of California San Diego Comprehensive Kidney Stone Center. so it is good for minimal change disease patients. It is helpful to relieve the symptoms of this disease and improve patients’ immunity to help treat MCD.

Tart Cherry Juice

Cherries and cherry juice relieve gout, which is cause by uric acid crystals in the joints; the same uric acid that can cause kidney stones. Tart cherry juice is high in potassium, antioxidants and anthocyanins, chemicals that prevent uric acid from forming into crystals, according to Dr. Theodore Baroody in "Alkalize or Die." The potassium in cherry juice works like it does in lemonade, keeping the urine more alkaline with a higher pH, says Baroody. He recommends drinking an 8 oz. glass of tart cherry juice diluted with the same amount of water daily to protect the kidneys.

If you happen to be a MCD patient, the effective therapy is the most vital for you. So, choosing a perfect therapy to help you win a healthy kidney.
