Iseating too much pangasius harmful to kidney dialysis? Toxicology expert reveals "here is the key"

A well-known chain restaurant in Taichung, "Jiang Xiaoyu Yuanyang Sauerkraut Pot", is involved in the sale of expired pangasius fish. A restaurant owner pointed out that most of the pangasius fish sold in the market are soaked in "phosphate". Eating too much may cause kidney dialysis, which has aroused public concern. In this regard, toxicology expert Zhao Mingwei said that the key is the "intake dose". If you only eat two or three pangasius fish, you don't have to worry about kidney dialysis at all.

Jacky Bistro Reservation Catering Tavern" posted a post on Facebook yesterday (18th), "Basa fish" is just catfish from Vietnam. Taiwanese love to import it. After soaking in phosphate, it doubles in size and eats too much Phosphate may cause chronic kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, etc. "Several of my friends died after dialysis, so I have worked hard to promote it in the past few years!"

In this regard, toxicology expert Zhaoming Weijin pointed out on Facebook that it is not the first case to use fish to soak "phosphate" pangasius.

Phosphate will affect the absorption of calcium ions to the human body, and it is easy to cause osteoporosis; , Excessive phosphate is a great burden on the kidneys, and long-term high intake can easily cause kidney function problems. But phosphate itself is not bad, because the intake of phosphate is not limited to pangasius. All meat and seafood proteins contain phosphate. As long as you eat meat, you will ingest phosphate.However, Zhao Mingwei emphasized that "dosage is the key." The daily upper limit of phosphate is 70 mg per kilogram. Adults can take up to 2800 mg per day, but it is not recommended to eat the upper limit every day. The general diet will take about 1000-1500 mg, so, in addition to the normal diet, each adult has about 1000-1500 mg of room for phosphate supplements per day. "Based on the phosphate content of 30 mg per sausage, it's about 33. If you only eat two or three pangasius, you don't have to worry about kidney dialysis at all!"
