Nephrotic Syndrome is a common clinical renal disease, which can damage your kidneys severely. Therefore, it is necessary for you to treat Nephrotic Syndrome as early as possible. Diet therapy is also part of treatment. What food should someone with Nephrotic Syndrome eat depends on the symptoms of patients.
High quality protein
Because most Nephrotic Syndrome patients have massive proteinuria, it is necessary for them to control the intake of protein. And it is better for them to consume high quality protein such as egg white, lean meat and milk. How much protein you can take depends on your remaining kidney function. Too much protein intake can increase burden on the kidneys so as to worsen the medical condition of kidney patients.
Low sodium diet
Another character of Nephrotic Syndrome is severe edema. If so, you should pay attention to the intake of sodium, because sodium can retain fluid in the body, worsening edema. It is better to control the sodium intake into 2-5 g per day. Besides, you should control water intake and some spicy food intake.
Low fat diet
Most Nephrotic Syndrome patients have hyperlipemia. In the daily, limiting the intake of fat, especially saturated fatty acid can help you relieve hyperlipemia. But you can eat proper unsaturated fatty acid, such as fish oil and flaxseed oil, which are good for health.
Fresh vegetables and fruits high in vitamins
In the daily, Nephrotic Syndrome patients should consume some vegetables and fruits high in vitamins to supplement nutrients for the body and boost immune system to help you fight against disease, such as cranberry, apple, guava, etc.
Diet plays an important role in slowing down the progression to kidney failure. But it is only an adjunctive treatment. Diet should be combined with aggressive treatment. For more information, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
