Low Phosphorus Diet For Nephrotic Syndrome

Low Phosphorus Diet For Nephrotic SyndromeAs we all know that for Nephrotic Syndrome patients, they usually have a strict diet requirement suggested by their doctors. Among them, having a low phosphorus is considered as an important part. Many patients may be eager to know why they should have a low phosphorus diet for nephrotic syndrome. The reason as below;

Kidney is an important organ which performs the function to keep the balance of phosphorus in the blood. However, when kidney is damaged, in other words, for Nephrotic Syndrome patients, the kidney fails to work properly, as a result, a lot of phosphorus will accumulate in the body. If patients still consume too much phosphorus absorbed from diet, in this case, a build up of phosphorus will lead to hyperphosphatemia to nephrotic syndrome patients. What is worse, high phosphorus level will lead to low calcium which will cause various severe bone diseases. From seeing this, low phosphorus diet for nephrotic syndrome is very necessary.

The following lists some specific high phosphorus foods which are not appropriate for nephrotic syndrome patients in general:

Milk and its product: yogurt, pudding, icecream, cheese, etc.

Vegetables: asparagus, broccoli, spinach, mushrooms, etc.

Soy bean and its product.

Others: chocolate, cola soft drinks, sardines, sesame, yolk, pluck, etc.

In addition to low phosphorus, the well-planed diet for nephrotic syndrome also includes high quality protein, low potassium and salt, the right amount of liquid, etc.

However, here is no a certain answer about choosing what low phosphorus foods for nephrotic syndrome patients, because their illness condition varies from individual to individual. Of course, you can also ask for your doctor to give a professional diet list which may help slow down the progression of nephrotic syndrome greatly.
