Should Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Avoid Saturated Fat

Should Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Avoid Saturated FatAs we all know, Nephrotic Syndrome is consisted of a group of symptoms, one of which is hyperlipemia. Saturated fat is a great source of cholesterol. Should Nephrotic Syndrome patients avoid saturated fat?

Nephrotic Syndrome patients should avoid saturated fat.

The reason why Nephrotic Syndrome patients have hyperlipemia is that massive protein leaks out of your body, leading to hypoproteinemia. Hypoproteinemia can make your liver to make massive lipoprotein. Saturated fat can raise cholesterol levels further and increases your risk of heart attacks so as to threaten your life, so if you have Nephrotic Syndrome, you had better avoid saturated fat. Food high in saturated fat include fatty meats, lard, full-fat dairy product like butter and cream, coconuts, coconut oil, palm oil and dark chocolate, etc.

Nephrotic Syndrome patients can eat moderate unsaturated fat.

From the above we can see that saturated fat is bad for Nephrotic Syndrome patients, but it does not mean you should avoid fat. Fat is an essential part of our diet which we can not live without. In such case, you can eat moderate unsaturated fat, because unsaturated fat can help you lower bad cholesterol level, inhibit inflammation and protect your hearts from being damaged. Fish oil, flaxseed oil, olive oil, sunflower oil, soybean oil and so on are all such kind of fat. But too much is as bad as too little.

Should Nephrotic Syndrome patients avoid saturated fat? To achieve a good therapeutic effect, you had better avoid saturated fat and choose some unsaturated fat to eat. Besides fat, you should pay attention to other aspects of diet, such as protein, salt, potassium and other trace elements.
