Get A Watermelon Spritzer and Beat The Heat

Summer is here! Enjoying a slice of juicy and cooled watermelon to cool off in the hot weather is nice. But is it suitable for people with kidney problems?


Watermelon is good for kidney health with moderate consumption. A registered dietitian certified in kidney nutrition shared in her platform that watermelon benefits kidney health because it is a fruit. Research found that people who consume lots of fruits and vegetables tend to have better blood control, lower acid levels, and a slower progression of kidney problems. Fruits and vegetables are also packed with dietary fiber that helps regular bowel movement, which may help lower the risk of end-stage kidney problems by avoiding potassium and uremic toxins accumulation.


A cup of diced watermelon contains around 170mg of potassium, which can fit into a kidney-friendly diet for those who need to limit potassium intake. Also, watermelon doesn’t directly impact creatinine levels. Although eating plenty of watermelons will not lower creatinine, eating more kidney-friendly food like fruits and vegetables help prevent creatinine level from going up.

"Can doctors know how well my kidney is functioning by simply looking at my creatinine level in blood?" That's properly a common question to ask. In short, the answer is no. Today, we will go through what creatinine is and how it is linked with kidney function.   Creatinine is a waste product produced when creatine, a molecule that provides energy to the muscles, is broken down. Creatinine is then eliminated from the body through the kidneys. When the ki
Swelling is one of the common signs for people living with kidney problems. It often indicates the kidneys do not remove excess fluid. Swelling can happen in ankles, feet, or any body part. It is rather uncomfortable because it can affect walking or cause shortness of breath.   There is an easy test to get an idea if one has swelled. Press on a bony area on the lower legs for around 5 seconds. Observe any pit formed, and if there is a dimple, note the depth of the pit

How long does it take to see results? Should I stop taking it after a while? Are there any side effects? These are some of the most common questions we get, and let’s find out the answer together.   How long does it take to see results? Results often vary among different users, as no two individuals have the same condition, diet, and lifestyles, which could all play parts in the effects of DTS.

DTS is scientifically proven to be beneficial to kidney function and has a positive effect on supporting the eGFR level. It is suitable for people to use as kidney support. Some may wonder, how about individuals without any kidney issues? Is DTS good for them too?   Absolutely yes! As “prevention is better than cure” is one of the basic modern healthcare strategies, the best time to take DTS is right before any kidney and liver problems show up. The herbal
Using creatinine as an indication of kidney function level is common, but just this number alone is not the optimal way to monitor kidney health nor to detect early kidney problems. According to professional recommendations, using an eGFR level is a more accurate indication of kidney health.   Creatinine is a by-product generated from protein metabolism. Therefore, muscle mass and diet can affect creatinine generation. For example, a muscular person or a person who cr
A study conducted in 2016 has shown that extracts from different parts of Eucommia, such as bark, stem, and seeds, contain health-promoting properties. Here are some examples:   1. Eucommia bark extract demonstrates an antihypertensive effect, confirmed by many human and animal models. 2. Under vivo and vitro studies, Eucommia has established strong antioxidant properties. 3. Eucommia leaf extract shows properties that promote the
