Water Intake with Nephrotic Syndrome

Water Intake with Nephrotic SyndromeAs we all know, Nephrotic Syndrome patients often have severe edema, resulting from massive proteinuria and kidney function impairment. In such case, patients are often asked to limit their water intake, because too much water can worsen their edema and increase the workload of kidneys. How much water intake is OK for Nephrotic Syndrome patients? If you want to know the answer, please go on reading.

Water intake should be made according to the remaining kidney function and the amount of urine you make. The more urine you produce, the more fluid you can take. The general rule is that the water intake is the urine volume in the previous day plus 500-700 ml of fluid. If you can leave your basic information below, we can give you an accurate answer.

If you have to restrict your water intake, the following measures can help you reduce thirst feeling.

-Avoid food that can make you feel thirsty, such as high sodium salt and sweet food.

-Drink water only when you feel thirsty

-Chew gum or suck an ice cube to stimulate saliva.

Besides water, you should pay attention to the intake of salt and protein. Because salt can retain water in the body. Foods such as pickles, sauces, cheese and so on are good source of salt, so you had better avoid them. Too much protein intake can worsen your proteinuria, increasing the decline of plasma colloid osmotic pressure so as to worsen edema. How much protein protein you can take also depends on your kidney function.

When your Nephrotic Syndrome are brought under controlled, there are few diet restrictions. In our hospital, there are seven TCM stereoscopic therapies, which can make your whole body balanced and harmonious. If you would like to know them, please contact online doctor.
