Can Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Drink MilkThere goes a saying in China that a chronic disease needs 30% medical treatment and 70% nursing care. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, they should especially pay attention to their diet. Can Nephrotic Syndrome patients drink milk? Many patients want to know the answer. Now let’s have a quick look.

Nephrotic Syndrome patients can drink milk.

-Nephrotic Syndrome is a kind of kidney disorder that damages the glomeruli, allowing a lot of protein releases into urine so that hypoproteinemia occurs. Hypoproteinemia can decrease plasma colloid osmotic pressure, leading to swelling. Your immunity can also be weakened. Therefore, if your kidney function is normal, you should supplement enough high quality protein to alleviated hypoproteinemia and some other complications. Milk is such a kind of protein.

-80% amino acids in milk are essential to our body. And their structure is very close to our body so it is easy to be absorbed and utilized. Besides amino acids, milk is packed with other nutrients, which are good for Nephrotic Syndrome patients as well. If calcium and phosphorus in your body is disordered, milk is helpful for you to regulate them.

-Lactose in milk can help you regulate acid secretion in stomach, promote the intestinal peristalsis and activate secretion of digestive glands so as to improve your appetite. It can also enhance the absorption of calcium so as to keep your bones healthy.

Though milk has so many health benefits for Nephrotic Syndrome patients, they should avoid too much intake of milk. Because massive protein intake can put extra stress on kidneys so as to speed up kidney failure. How much milk you can drink per day depends on your medical condition.
