Question: My daughter is diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. What fruits and vegetables can boost her immune system? We took her back to hospital as she has relapse and still shows edema after three weeks of treatment.
Answer: Infections are a main cause of relapse for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. By boosting immune system, you can reduce the relapse greatly. But fruits and vegetables can only play a role of adjuvant treatment. Fruits and vegetables high in vitamins are preferred, such as apricots, bell pepper, blackberries, broccoli, onion, pineapple, spinach, tomato, kiwifruit, lemon, gooseberries, guavas, okra, carrot, mango, cucumber, celery, etc. However, those fruits and vegetables are not suitable for all Nephrotic Syndrome patients, because some of them are high in potassium. If your blood potassium level is high, you had better avoid those foods.
Besides foods, you can try some treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome.
In Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Toxin-Removing Treatment is often used. It is proved effective in Nephrotic Syndrome treatment. For example, it can turn proteinuria negative and make swelling disappear. Because kidneys are repaired and immunity is strengthened, those symptoms won’t come back easily. Now let’s have a quick look at this treatment.
Toxin-Removing Treatment is actually a combined treatment with Chinese medicine therapies such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Cycle Therapy, Steam Therapy, Mai Kang Mixture and so on to eliminate waste products and extra fluid out of body to make internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application. It can also expand blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into damaged kidneys to speed up kidney recovery. After about one week’s treatment, swelling will be relieved. After about half month’s treatment, swelling will disappear, and proteinuria will reduce. After about one month’s treatment, your Nephrotic Syndrome will be under control. And eventually proteinuria will vanish.
Fruits and vegetables are good for Nephrotic Syndrome patients to boost immune system, but you had better follow a correct medical treatment to bring the disease under control. For more information on Nephrotic Syndrome treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
