Fasting, Kidney Disease and You…What You Should Know

Fasting and Chronic Kidney Disease: Helpful or Not?

Robert Galarowicz for Healthy Kidney Inc. back again with more answers to the questions you’ve all been asking. Today I want to talk about fasting. Fasting is essentially just abstaining from eating for a set period of time. It’s used by people who are looking to lose weight, are observing special religious customs such as Ramadan, or for various health reasons.

Fasting can be very beneficial for those looking to improve their health, but what about for those dealing with kidney disease. Can fasting and kidney disease co-exist? Luckily we do have the benefit of a large body of research concerning this subject and the answer is, it depends on which stage you are in.

In those who are dealing with chronic kidney disease’s early stages, that is, anywhere from stage 1 to stage 3, cautious fasting may be able to be observed. Any stage beyond that, however, such as stages 4 and 5, should not partake in fasting, as it can be very dangerous. In cases of fasting for religious observance, there are even health-related exclusions for those with kidney issues, and should definitely be looked into for those considering fasting despite their kidney disease.

In short, it’s important to always review and weigh the health benefits versus the detriments regarding any dietary changes one decides to implement, especially if you’re also dealing with chronic kidney disease.
