Hi, thank you for visiting Healthcare Magic. A bad effect of Khaini is its high sodium content. a person on dialysis has to consume less sodium (salt) that a person with normal kidney function.
It also promotes many disorders in the oral cavity like gum disease, oral ulcers and cardiovascular disease.
