The Diet of Nephrotic Syndrome

The Diet of Nephrotic SyndromeNephrotic Syndrome is not a single disease, but a syndrome with proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia and swelling. A proper diet will help you slow down the progression of symptoms and complications and it can also prevent other health problems. Then, what foods should patients with nephrotic syndrome eat?

1. Protein needs. Your doctor may analyze your lab results and estimate how much protein you require. A high-protein diet may be suggested one time, but it is rarely encouraged any more. Most patients with nephrotic syndrome only need 0.8 grams of protein a day.

2. Sodium intake. You don’t have to limit your sodium take over much, and you can have 2000-3000mg a day in total. In general, processed foods are rich in sodium. It is very important that how you distribute them into three meals. Thus, you should make sure the sodium content of the foods that you choose when you are buying things.

3. Fat and cholesterol intake. Saturated fats and trans fats should be avoided. You should focus on eating foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids. Also you need limit the cholesterol to 200-300 mg a day.

4. Soluble fiber. You will increase your intake of soluble fiber, which can help the body to get rid of cholesterol. Soluble fiber can be found in oats, apples, citrus fruits, carrots, strawberries and legumes.

5. Number of meals per day. Many patients with nephrotic syndrome may feel full faster. They can not eat much at one time. For this situation, we suggest you could have six or more small meals per day instead of the traditional three large meals. You should depend on your own feeling and never use over-dose foods to keep nutrient balance. Meanwhile, you should avoid drinking fluid when you are eating. Because it can lead to full feelings.

A good diet with an effective treatment can help patients with nephrotic syndrome recover quickly. Mirco-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy as a famous treatment helps a lot of patients recover, and I hope it may help you solve problems as well. So, you can Consult Our Online Expert, if you need help.
