How Much Sodium Intake Should Be for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients on A Daily Basis

How Much Sodium Intake Should Be for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients on A Daily Basis Sodium plays an important role in human metabolism. For healthy people, they have to supplement moderate sodium to maintain the normal function of body, while for Nephrotic Syndrome patients, sodium can not be removed out of the body timely. Therefore, they are required to restrict the intake of sodium. How much sodium intake should be for Nephrotic Syndrome patients on a daily basis?

For healthy people, they should take 6-12 g sodium per day to satisfy the need of body. If you do not take enough sodium, it is likely for you to suffer from sodium deficiency so as to cause muscle cramp, dizziness, nausea, weakness, etc. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, they usually have water and sodium retention. In order to relieve swelling, reduce blood pressure and decrease the risk of heart failure, they should limit the sodium intake into 2-3 g per day. When they have severe edema, it is necessary to avoid sodium intake. As long as your blood pressure is under control and swelling is alleviated, there is not restricted sodium intake. Over restriction of sodium can cause malnutrition, which is not good for kidney recovery or even worsen your kidney disease.

Low sodium diet affects the patients’ appetite. If you can not supplement enough nutrients, you can not recover from Nephrotic Syndrome quickly. In such case, you can use sugar, vinegar, ginger, garlic and so on to improve the taste. With the help of dietitian, you can get a more professionalized guidance on diet.

How much sodium intake should be for Nephrotic Syndrome patients on a daily basis? It depends on your medical condition. When your Nephrotic Syndrome is stabilized, there are not so much restrictions on diet and you can lead a normal life. In China, we develop a series of natural therapies for Nephrotic Syndrome.
