Consumption Of Ambon Banana Syrup In Kidney Disease Sufferers?
Sorry doctor. I am confused with my father. My father said the DHT brand syrup can make his kidney heal well, the syrup is consumed every day. I’m afraid my father might even get diabetes or diabetes. Also his kidney was damaged by the red coloring material from the syrup. Please enlighten me based on the real analysis that I should have known.
Hello Putu Suhasiswa, thank you for asking.
The contents of each syrup brand are certainly different for each type of syrup, depending on the manufacturer that determines the composition of the syrup. In general, syrups contain high glucose and other additives such as preservatives, artificial flavorings, and food coloring. For people with kidney disorders or kidney failure it is not recommended to consume too many sugary drinks. That is because:
In people with kidney disorders, fluid balance needs to be closely guarded. For example in people with terminal kidney failure, the amount of fluid that enters the body every day must follow the advice of the treating doctor. There should not be too much liquid and not too much thinking. This number must be monitored very closely. If the amount of fluid is too small, the filtering work of the kidneys will be heavy and risk damaging the kidneys further. If the amount of fluid is too much, excess fluid cannot be removed by the kidneys, causing a buildup of fluid in the body that can result in leg edema or pulmonary edema. High sugar levels in drinks will increase blood glucose levels. High blood glucose causes water from the tissues to enter and be retained in the blood vessels, resulting in less urine volume and edema. High blood glucose can lead to diabetes. High blood glucose, preservatives, flavorings, and dyes can further damage kidney function. It's best to give your father a slow and wise understanding. Give understanding that drinks and sweet foods can be consumed, but in limited quantities, not every day. Bring your father together to change his diet and lifestyle. The approach may need to be repeated so that your father understands. Thus our brief explanation, hopefully you can find the right solution soon. Regards.
