Kidney Disease Warning: Never Eat Star Fruit with kidney damage or CKD - extremely DANGEROUS
It looks innocent and you may ask yourself, is star fruit dangerous to eat if you have kidney damage or Chronic Kidney Disease? The answer is that you should NEVER, under any circumstances, try starfruit or any food made with starfruit - Starfruit is DEADLY to those with kidney disease. While the Starfruit is a good source of several nutrients, especially fiber and vitamin C, it also contains a toxic substance called a neurotoxin. This neurotoxin can affect the brain, cause neurological disorders or even death in some people. People with healthy, normal kidneys can process and pass this toxin out from their body without any harm. However, for those with kidney disease, this is not possible. The toxin stays in the body and causes serious illness or even death.

Kidney Health – When your kidneys are healthy, they remove waste and excess toxins from your blood. Kidney health is also vital in regulating blood pressure and building strong bones.
When you have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) your kidney disease directly impacts your kidney function, reducing how well your kidneys remove toxins and waste from your blood. People with kidney disease also have difficulty controlling their blood pressure since it is one of the functions of a healthy kidney.
Everyone with Chronic Kidney Disease should work with their doctor to customize their own strategy. It is critical to follow your doctor's instructions for the plan specific to your kidney disease. Your doctor may prescribe medications, a kidney diet, and set limits for your daily Phosphorous, Potassium, Sodium, Protein, Carbohydrates, and Calcium.
By not following your doctor's plan and eating a healthy kidney diet, you will eventually end up with end-stage renal failure, also known as stage 5 kidney disease or Kidney Failure. At that point, your kidney disease diet will become extremely strict, and you may need to consider dialysis to stay alive. Dialysis does not duplicate all of the kidney's functions, and it is hard on your body as it uses machines to detox your kidneys and removes waste and toxins from your blood. It should be your goal to avoid dialysis by working with your doctor to improve your kidney function.
To prevent Kidney failure, follow your kidney doctor and kidney dietician's recommended kidney diet. Also, understand that there currently is no cure for Kidney Disease. However, it is possible to improve your kidney function and increase your GFR through the proper kidney diet and treatment.
Some essential things to limit or avoid on ALL kidney diets are sodium (slat), phosphate, potassium, carbohydrates (sugar), and protein. It is also suitable for your kidneys and overall health to avoid artificial sweeteners, artificial flavors, artificial preservatives, and highly processed foods.
If you have Chronic Kidney Disease, you also must manage your blood sugar levels (diabetes) and high blood pressure (hypertension) very carefully. Uncontrolled diabetes or high blood pressure can damage your kidneys, reduce kidney function, and increase toxins and waste in your blood. They also put additional stress on your kidneys, causing inflammation that reduces kidney function and lowers your GFR.
