As we all know, diet plays an important role in recovering from disease. What can a child suffering from Nephrotic Syndrome eat? If you want your kids to recover as early as possible, the following information will be very helpful for you.
Eat less salt
For children, they are in a stage of growth and development. Therefore, there are not so many restrictions on food as adults. But it is still necessary for you to limit their salt intake. Because Nephrotic Syndrome patients usually have severe swelling, and salt intake can make the swelling worse and elevate blood pressure. Before swelling disappears, the child should eat less salt. Some snacks are also high in salt, so you had better choose the right snacks for them. When swelling has disappeared, it is unnecessary for you to limit salt intake, but a low salt intake is recommended, which can help stabilize the disease.
Moderate protein intake
Children need a lot of protein to maintain the growth and development. But with Nephrotic Syndrome, massive protein goes out of body. In such a case, if too much protein is taken, it can add insult to injury. In such a case, you should know the correct amount of protein your child should eat, which does not put extra stress on kidneys. In addition, high quality protein such as egg white, lean meat, milk, poultry without skin is recommended.
Eat more fresh vegetables and fruits
Fresh vegetables and fruits are high in vitamins and minerals, which are all helpful for the recovery.
