Does Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Need To Limit The Water Intake

Does Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Need To Limit The Water IntakeEdema is one of the typical features of Nephrotic Syndrome, especially in eyelid, both lower extremities, sometimes hydronephrosis maybe occur. Why nephrotic syndrome can cause edema? In fact, the cause of edema not only is concerned with renal lesion, but also has something with the kidney patients’ water intake. So, nephrotic syndrome patients need to limit the water intake.

The right amount of water intake plays an important role in treating nephrotic syndrome. Some nephrotic syndrome patients without obvious edema limit their water intake blindly just because they are afraid of edema. While some nephrotic syndrome patients think drinking more water can remove the toxins of their bodies, so they drink much water every day. Both the above two cases are wrong, and the right way to drink water is making ends meet and drinking when thirsty.

There are many methods of water loss, they mainly include three types, visible dehydration, invisible dehydration and endophytic water. You can calculate your water intake according to them. Visible dehydration means that water lose due to urine, feces, vomitus. Invisible dehydration refers to sporadic moisture by skin and respiratory tract. While endophytic water refers to the moisture released by food oxidation and cell metabolism.

So, how to calculate the lost water? Visible dehydration is obvious. Invisible dehydration:0.5milliliter/kg body weight/hour or 12milliliter/kg body weight/day. Of course, its need to be adjusted properly by your age, temperature, humidity. Invisible dehydration: 400-500ml+the urine volume of the previous day.

While, except water, sodium, protein and lipid are also need to be adjusted according to your condition’s changes.
