Q: 

My husband has CKD, but his kidneys are relatively stable. Is it ok for him to drink ginger root tea?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

There may be some adverse reaction to ginger, depending on what medications your husband is on due to his CKD. We have an article on ginger here that will help: http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/bland-diet
Your husband should consult his doctor to make sure ginger will be ok to take.
Best,
Susan
