Dietary Guidelines for Nephrotic Syndrome

Dietary Guidelines for Nephrotic SyndromeNephrotic Syndrome is consisted of a group of symptoms, such as massive proteinuria, swelling, hypoproteinemia and hyperlipemia. According to its feature, we should adjust diet to help control the symptoms you have. In the following, there are some dietary guidelines for Nephrotic Syndrome. Hope it can help you. If you would like a personalized diet plan, please contact online doctor.

Nephrotic Syndrome patients should control sodium intake.

Swelling is a typical symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome. Sodium retains water in your body, worsening swelling. In order to prevent worsening swelling, you had better limit sodium intake into 2g per day and avoid food high in sodium, such as pickles, bacon, processed food, etc. When swelling disappears and plasma protein returns to normal range, you can follow a normal diet.

Nephrotic Syndrome patients should pay attention to protein intake.

Because of massive proteinuria, it is likely for Nephrotic Syndrome patients to suffer from malnutrition. But too much protein intake increases blood flow into kidneys and raises GFR so that more protein loses from your body, which speeds up kidney failure. Therefore, Nephrotic Syndrome patients should pay attention to the amount of protein intake, which depends on their medical condition.

Nephrotic Syndrome patients should restrict fat intake.

High blood cholesterol level raises your risk of heart failure. It can also cause glomerulosclerosis. Thereby patients should limit the intake of fat, such as animal pluck and seafood. But you can eat some unsaturated fat, such as fish oil and flaxseed oil.

Nephrotic Syndrome patients should supplement trace elements.

Nephrotic Syndrome patients lose a lot of protein and trace elements with massive proteinuria, leading to calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron and some other element deficiency. Therefore, patients should supplement them to maintain the normal function of body.

The above is a brief introduction to dietary guidelines for Nephrotic Syndrome. What you eat and drink depends on your medical condition. If you can send your medical test report to igacure@gmail.com, our doctor can help you make a personalized diet plan and treatment plan.
