Health benefits of sweet potatoes for Nephrotic Syndrome patients

-Control blood sugar level

If your Nephrotic Syndrome is caused by Diabetic Nephropathy, sweet potatoes are a good choice for you. Sweet potatoes taste sweet, but their natural sugars are slowly released into the bloodstream, helping to ensure a balanced and regular source of energy, without the blood sugar spikes linked to fatigue and weight gain.

-Protect your hearts

Heart failure is a common complication of Nephrotic Syndrome, because almost all Nephrotic Syndrome patients have high cholesterol level. The high content of B6 vitamins in sweet potatoes are helpful in inhibiting the deposition of cholesterol and keeping the blood vessels elasticity. Their potassium content is also helpful for your heart, because it lower blood pressure by maintaining fluid balance.
