Can People with Kidney Disease Drink Coconut WaterCan people with kidney disease drink fresh coconut water? Recently, some people have consulted us this question, so we would like to tell them whether they can drink young coconut water. 

Coconut water is nutritious clear liquid inside the coconut fruit which is packed with vitamins and minerals. There is usually more water in a young coconut, because the water is replaced by the white flesh gradually as it matures. Therefore, people with kidney disease but no symptoms are recommended to drink the coconut water that are harvested off when the coconut are still young and green.

Many studies have shown that young coconut water has a good antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity effect. For people with kidney disease, they are more susceptible to infections and inflammatory. Therefore, drinking moderate amount of coconut water is good for them.

Because some substances in the coconut water have a function of diuretic, they can prompt kidney disease patients to make more urine. As a result, more wastes and toxins will be removed from the body. However, if you can’t make sure, you are not suggested to drink it.

The coconut water is quite similar to intracellular fluid, so drinking it can supply enough fluid to the kidney cells, boost patients’ energy, increase the blood volume, prevent skin problems, etc. With more energy, patients can fight against their disease better.

Rich in potassium and other minerals, coconut water can help regulate electrolyte imbalance and replenish and rehydrate the body. It has been commonly used to treat dehydration due to dysentery, cholera, diarrhea and stomach flu and electrolyte imbalance.

However, not all people with kidney disease can drink coconut water because its high potassium and some other minerals. If your blood test shows you have high potassium or others, you had better avoid it.
