Diet Plan for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients with Creatinine 5.8

Diet Plan for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients with Creatinine 5.8Creatinine level is an important indicator of kidney function, so we need to consider creatinine level into consideration while making diet plan and treatment plan. Nephrotic Syndrome is an illness that can elevate serum creatinine level. Well, what is the diet plan for Nephrotic Syndrome patients with creatinine 5.8?

First of all, creatinien level 5.8 is a very high level, which means kidneys have been severely damaged. Under such a condition, a low-salt diet is needed, as salt is rich in sodium and high sodium intake will aggravate swelling, the common symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome, and elevate blood pressure, which may cause further kidney damages.

Secondly, Nephrotic Syndrome is always marked by severe protein leakage. Creatinine 5.8 means illness is kidney failure stage. Under such a condition, a proper protein intake is very important. In general, if the patients are on dialysis, they need to increase protein intake into 1.2 gram per kilogram of body weight per day. However, if they have not start dialysis, they need to reduce protein intake to 0.2 gram per kilogram of body weight per day. Additional, high quality protein is suggested for Nephrotic Syndrome patients.

Thirdly, fluid limitation is also necessary for Nephrotic Syndrome patients, because drinking too much water will increase kidney burden and meanwhile aggravate fluid retention. Therefore, Nephrotic Syndrome patients need to avoid drinking too much soup in daily diet.

Forth, fried foods and fatty foods also need to be avoided by people suffering Nephrotic Syndrome. This helps to avoid worsening of hyperlipidaemia, one of the most common complication of Nephrotic Syndrome.

Lastly, high carbohydrate foods and high fiber foods are also recommended for one with Nephrotic Syndrome, but remember to choose the one low in potassium and phosphorus.

Serum creatinine level helps to reflect kidney condition, and we need to put it into consideration while making diet plan. But for Nephrotic Syndrome patients, high creatinine 5.8 can not be reduced to normal range just by adjusting diet habits.
