Can Kidney Failure Patients Have Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is supposed to be a cure for kidney infections which often start as an infection somewhere along the urinary tract. Kidney infection is a common problem among Kidney Failure patients, so some kidney failure patients use apple cider vinegar as a solution for frequent kidney infection. However, in some other cases, kidney failure patients are told they should stay far away from apple cider vinegar. Why is this?

Actually, whether kidney failure patients can use apple cider vinegar depends on their potassium level.

Kidney failure can cause disturbance of potassium metabolism, leading to high potassium level or low potassium level in blood. For people with elevated potassium level (higher than 5.5mmol/L), they run a higher risk for irregular heartbeat, muscle pain, muscle tremor, nausea, vomit, drowsiness and even coma. Kidney failure can cause elevation of potassium level, so some kidney failure patients should avoid using apple cider vinegar.

Kidney failure patients’ illness condition differs from case to case and some of them may suffer from severe low potassium level due to kidney problem. In that cases, apple cider vinegar will be a good choice in their daily life. Besides, for kidney failure patients, if their potassium level is elevated seriously, aside from apple cider vinegar, they also need to avoid foods like banana, spinach, white beans, dried apricots, baked potatoes, salmon, yogurt, avocados and mushrooms and so on.
