Role of Calcium in Children with Nephrotic Syndrome

Role of Calcium in Children with Nephrotic SyndromeChildren are always asked to ingest necessary trace element, so as to guarantee a healthy body. For children with Nephrotic Syndrome, they also need to replenish enough trace element like calcium, which not only plays a role for the normal function of the body, but also has positive effects on their illness. Well, for children with Nephrotic Syndrome, what is the role?

Trace element refers to an element that has an average concentration of less than 100 per million measured in atomic count or less than 100 micrograms per gram. In our body, the most common trace element includes calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, nitrogen and magnesium and so on.

Trace element plays an important role for our health. For calcium, it is the major component of our bone and tooth. For children, they need more calcium to support their physical development.When calcium content in their blood is lower than the reference value, they are more likely to suffer from various bone problems and teeth problems like bone pain, bone fracture, osteoporosis, teeth loose, rickets and skeleton deformity and so on.

For children with Nephrotic Syndrome, their kidney is affected. Kidney is an organ with bean shape. It can help to maintain electrolyte balance. Therefore, for children with Nephrotic Syndrome, they run a high risk for electrolyte imbalance like hypoproteinemia. For this reason, children with Nephrotic Syndrome should be especially careful about their calcium intake, so as to avoid further health tissues. Besides, how much calcium is needed by a kid with Nephrotic Syndrome depends on his specific illness condition. Therefore, if you have a child suffering from this kind of kidney problem, it is necessary for you to ask his or her doctor for proper calcium intake. Also, you can get a personalized diet plan from our nephrologists by leaving message to igacure@gmail.com.
