9 Foods That Are Destroying Your Unhealthy Kidneys


Hey there! I’m going to ask you a question. It may sound personal, but I am your Bestie
after all. How’s your diet been lately? Health professionals often warn you about
foods that can hurt your heart, stomach and liver. But what about your kidneys? Do you ever think about how your lifestyle
affects your kidneys? Because chances are the food you’re eating
is harmful to them. Did you know that an estimated 30 million
people in the United States suffer from kidney disease? Let’s talk 9 Foods That Are Currently Destroying
Your Kidneys? Bananas, whole-wheat bread, avocados? Why is life so damn cruel? Without further ado, bring on the list. Avocado Let’s get this one out of the way, cause
like me, you’re probably shocked by this. On a menu of healthy foods everyone tells
you to eat, avocado is normally at the top. Every hipster and barista with man-bun can’t
wait to tell you about that new avocado-flavoured product they’ve been turned on to. Well they might taste delicious, but if you
have kidney problems, now’s not the time to listen to Bryce! When a person is suffering from kidney disease,
they need to keep tabs on their potassium intake. Let’s break this down for perspective. A person with healthy kidneys is recommended
around 4700 mg of potassium each day. But if your kidneys are in pain, a healthy
diet you must gain! I’m trying to come up with a proper kidney
catch phrase here. Let me know how I’m doing. We’re talking 1500 – 2700 mg. This means cutting down on potassium-filled
foods like avocados. One avocado holds approximately 975 mg of
potassium. So don’t try to be all fancy and new-age. 2. Oranges I know. It definitely seems like we’re starting
this list on the wrong foot. Afterall, everybody loves oranges. Citrus is good for maintaining already healthy
kidneys, but a kidney patient who’s trying to watch their health can be greatly affected
by the amount of potassium– by the way you’re going to be hearing that word a lot in this
video. The reason? Well when a person is suffering from damaged
kidneys, potassium and other minerals build up in the blood. This can cause heart disease. While one orange contains an estimated 240
mg of potassium, a single glass of orange juice carries around 332 mg. I don’t know about you, but just one glass
doesn’t exactly quench my thirst in the morning. If you’re looking for a healthy replacement
that can make your kidneys happy, grape juice and apple juice are recommended highly. 3. Pickles Let’s go back to hipsters for a second. They all seem to love their jars of pickles. Every cashew milk bar I go into seems to have
a giant jar of pickles at the counter. Wait, why the heck am I in a cashew milk bar–
Am I a hipster? Anyways if you somehow are considering an
all-pickle diet, you may want to check how your kidneys are doing first. Let’s push potassium to the side for a moment
and talk sodium. The average person is recommended 1500 – 2300
mg of sodium per day. How much does one pickle contain? Drum roll please… 1200 mg! That can be up to 80% of your daily intake. A steady diet of sodium-heavy foods can open
the door to high blood pressure and kidney stones! Keep your hand away from the pickle jar! 4. Apricots Let’s take a vote here. How many of you under the age of 65 really
think about apricots all that often? Just kidding. If you get a hold of apricots, you should
definitely try them. These delicious fruits are known to be high
in Vitamin A, Vitamin C and copper. But again, if your kidneys are weak, a healthy
diet you must seek… Again these can’t all be gems, people. One cup of dried apricots can hold up to 1500
mg of potassium. I say this with confidence… Your great aunt Ethel’s kidneys must be
healthy as hell for all those apricots she chows down on. 5. Soda Alright, I know this is technically not a
food. But in all honesty, neither is orange juice
and you guys are alright with that. Seriously though, I’m bringing up soda because
it leads into our third big nutrient of the video. We’re talking phosphorus! Phosphorus is a key mineral of the human body. While it only comprises about 1% of your body
weight, phosphorus is responsible for the formation of your bones and teeth. A healthy adult is recommended to consume
between 800mg – 1200mg per day. Additive phosphorus however is not ideal for
your health. In fact, the average can of cola holds somewhere
between 50 – 100mg of additive phosphorus in each can. If you happen to be a regular soda drinker,
watch out. If you haven’t been listening to your mom
since the age of like… three, you may not have heard that soda isn’t the healthiest
choice for you in general. Check out our video covering the Cancer Risks
of Drinking Soda & Juices. Also, for a little balance on the subject
at hand, check out the video for 13 Foods That Make Your Kidneys Healthy. 6. Whole Wheat Bread More often than not nowadays, people seem
to recommend any bread over white. It’s like some people live their entire
lives preaching the gospel of “whole wheat”. For the most part, people are correct. Whole-wheat bread is a great source of vitamins
and minerals. But again, if your kidneys are a hurtin’,
a good diet you should be assertin’? Is that– Nevermind. A single slice of whole-wheat bread carries
around 57 mg of phosphorus and around 69 mg of potassium. If you’re making a sandwich, that’s 114
mg of phosphorus and 138 mg of potassium. And that’s just before adding the meat,
which leads us into our next food… 7. Red Meat Don’t worry, this is not going to be another
lecture on how red meat is poison and you should stay away from it. Blah, blah, blah. Every health pamphlet you pickup on a street
corner says that. We’re talking specifically about how red
meat affects the kidneys. A recent study showed that kidney patients
with steady diets of red meat were three times more likely to develop kidney failure than
those who eat clean veggies. This includes things such as pork, lamb and
beef. Yes, your precious jerky. Come to think of it, I know we said we weren’t
going to lecture you on how bad red meat is… But I guess we just did. We’ll make a video on 11 Ways Red Meat is
Good For You. Uh, alright maybe scrape it down to 2 Ways. 8. Spinach It’s hard to believe the food Popeye ate
to get stronger could do so much harm to kidney patients. Let’s talk one more fancy word, oxalates. Oxalates are a natural compound found in various
foods. Calcium oxalate is found in 80% of kidney
stones. If you have kidney stones, it is recommended
that you consume around 40 to 50 mg of oxalates a day. Where does spinach enter the conversation? Well it might be a food you want to steer
clear of considering it contains around 100 mg a serving. 9. Bananas Like we mentioned earlier, cutting potassium
out of your diet can be a lifesaver if you have kidney disease. I should’ve maybe explained this beforehand,
but I never think that far ahead. The kidneys are meant to filter out blood
and remove waste through your urine. This also includes potassium. And there is no food more synonymous with
potassium that the dreaded banana! The average banana holds an estimated 422
mg of potassium. Since a banana is just around 89 calories
and absolutely delicious, it’s not uncommon for a person to eat more than one. Remember, you want 1500 – 2700 mg minimum
if you’re a kidney patient. This mean’s one banana could be roughly
15 – 28% of your daily potassium intake. Just remember, if your kidneys are about to
bust, your potassium intake you’ll need to adjust- I apologize for how bad that was. I try too hard, I must say. Do you suffer from kidney problems? Are you thinking of cutting back on any of
these foods? Sound off in the comment section, and don’t
forget to hit the bell and subscribe for more great advice from your Bestie!

    For Bestie.
    Please remember that Avacado may be a recent phenomenon in the West, but my forfather's (I am over 60) ate avacadoes for breakfast and in salads for centuries. Similarly, papaya, mangoes, sweet potatoes ,ginger, garlic, pepper of all kinds, aubergines and many more foods that are now popular and sought after in the Western hemisphere. People in the Carribean and from tropical countries have eaten these food all their life.

    However, I sincerely thank you for your many helpful and excellent videos.

    (Incidentally, I knew that about spinach being bad for people with a tendency to kidney stones; because of oxalic acid. Ditto sorrel. Ditto beetroots, to an extent.)

    And any dried fruit, not just apricots, is sure to be high in potassium.

    Maybe instead of just producing clickbait we should ask what kind of chemicals seem to be knocking out so many people's kidneys…

    There's a huge difference between artificial potassium, and natural potassium. I don't know who your advertising for. but potassium is a necessity in everybody's diet and natural potassium is good for you. you can't overdose on natural potassium. How ever you can on toxic artificial additive vitamins, minerals, especially artificial potassium. All can harm your whole body, not just your kidneys.
