Diet For People With Nephrotic Syndrome And High Blood Pressure

Diet For People With Nephrotic Syndrome And High Blood PressureFor patients with Nephrotic Syndrome and high blood pressure, they may have such a doubt: what is the proper diet for me? Then let us have a look at the following contents.

In normal condition, kidneys can remove extra metabolic products and fluids form the body successfully. Meanwhile, it can help regulate blood pressure within the normal range. However, for those with nephrotic syndrome and high blood pressure, due to decline of kidney function, extra wastes and fluids will build up in the blood and at the same time, less renin will be released, thereby, high blood pressure will appear easily.

Diet for people with nephrotic syndrome and high blood pressure

As we all know that people who suffer from nephrotic syndrome and high blood pressure can help to ease the symptoms of the disease by eating a special and proper diet. Well, the following introduces some suggestions which may help you greatly.

1. Control protein intake

Although patients with nephrotic syndrome and high blood pressure show low protein in blood test, excessive intake of protein should be avoided as the kidneys have to function more vigorously to filter surplus protein, which can cause tubular damage to the kidneys. Besides, moderate protein intake can definitely help preserve renal function. Foods such as wheat, sprouts, legumes, egg whites, lean meat( skinless chicken), dry fish, and pulses are a rich source of proteins but should be consumed in moderation.

2. Low sodium intake

Swelling or edema associated with the syndrome comes from excess sodium in the body created by the kidney’s inefficient waste extraction. This symptom can be controlled through a low-sodium diet or by adjusting fluid intake.

3. Low-potassium, phosphorus, calcium intake

4. Low fat intake

5. Restrict intake of water

6. Low cholesterol foods
