Nephrotic Syndrome often gets relapse. In order to reduce the sufferings, I have sorted out the daily nursing care knowledge of Nephrotic Syndrome, including diet, daily living and clinical nursing. Hope the 3 points can help you.

1. Diet

-A low-salt diet should be maintained during high-dose hormone treatment or with edema.

-Protein intake should meet the needs of the body and urine loss.

-Water intake should be restricted appropriately if patients have severe edema or less urine.

-People who already have hyperlipidemia and hypoproteinemia should limit their cholesterol and saturated fat intake.

-To eat more fresh fruits and vegetables and take vitamin supplements, especially vitamin C and B.

-To increase dietary fiber intake to reduce the incidence of acidosis.

2. Daily living

-To maintain personal hygiene and exercise appropriately without fatigue.

-To develop good living habits and get enough sleep.

-To keep the air fresh and reduce personnel exchanges in the patient room.

-To keep a happy mood and avoid the relapse of the disease and fluctuation of blood pressure caused by emotional factors.

3. Clinical nursing

-Patients with significant edema and a large amount of proteinuria should be bed-ridden more.

-Those with severe edema should change their positions frequently.

-Those with eyelid or facial swelling should have a higher pillow.

-Those with pleural effusion should be half-lying.

-Those with scrotal edema had better lift the scrotum with bandage.
