Can Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Eat Orange

Can Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Eat OrangeAs we all know that for Nephrotic Syndrome patients, they usually have a strict diet requirement. However, can nephrotic syndrome patients eat orange? To find the answer, please read on.

Actually, to judge whether someone can eat a certain fruit is mainly decided by the nutrition contained in it. Normally, healthy kidneys are able to remove excessive potassium from the body successfully and maintain the potassium level in a normal range ( 3.5-5.5mEq/L). Unfortunately, for nephrotic syndrome patients, their kidneys fail to work properly, as a result, a lot of potassium will build up in the body which may lead to heart failure or arrhythmia ( irregular heartbeat ) to them.

Can nephrotic syndrome patients eat orange? While the amount of potassium in one small orange always is 237 mg, so if nephrotic syndrome patients have high potassium level, generally speaking, they are not allowed to eat orange. In this case, in addition to orange, other rich potassium foods like banana, beans, potatoes, spinach, salmon, cod, etc had better be avoided as well.

Of course, if nephrotic syndrome patients’ potassium level is normal, they can eat orange to supplement some vitamins and nutritions. But not the more the better. If you or your relatives happen to be a patient and want to get some personalized suggestions just depend on specific illness conditions, please contact us by emailing to igacure@gmail.com or chatting with our online doctors for free help, we are here to help you.
