Can Nephropathy Syndrome Patients Eat Mushrooms

Can Nephropathy Syndrome Patients Eat MushroomsIt is well known that a reasonable, healthy diet plan not only plays an important role in patients’ body, but also is beneficial for slowing down the progression of kidney diseases, of course, including nephropathy syndrome. However, it is not mean everyone can eat mushrooms. So recently, lots of people consult us can nephropathy syndrome patients eat mushrooms and what should they do. Dealing with these two problems, the following passages may help you greatly.

Nephropathy syndrome means that your kidneys fail to remove the waste products and excessive toxins from your blood. And most the waste products result from the foods that you eat in the daily life. In view of this, I am afraid the answer to the question can nephropathy syndrome patients eat mushrooms may be not. The reasons are as follows:

1. Mushroom is rich in protein. For people with nephropathy syndrome, the damaged kidneys can not work well to remove the metabolism of protein food properly. Thus protein will build up in their blood and it can be regarded as the burden of kidneys. So patients with nephropathy syndrome are suggested to have a low protein diet. But in order to meet the needs of body, high quality protein diet is highly recommended to them, such as milk, lean meat, egg white and so on.

2. The other reason is that mushroom contains rich potassium. Much intake of potassium can cause hyperkalemia easily and in this situation, some symptoms may occur, like stiff tongue, chest pain, fatigue. All of these symptoms may affect patients’ life seriously.

Actually, there is no a certain answer to the question can nephropathy syndrome eat mushrooms. For people with nephropathy syndrome, they had better to take a special and reasonable diet that is based on their own illness conditions and then decide whether they can eat mushrooms. In addition, under the guidance of doctors, they should take some effective treatments as early as possible. If you need help, feel free to contact us, we are pleased to help you.
