Should Protein Be Limited if Child Has Nephrotic Syndrome

Should Protein Be Limited if Child Has Nephrotic Syndrome Nephrotic Syndrome patients often have massive protein leakage. In order not to worsen proteinuria, protein intake is often required to be restricted. Should protein be limited if child has Nephrotic Syndrome?

Children should supplement enough protein.

For children, they are undergoing growth. During this course, they need a lot of protein. If protein is limited, it is likely for them to have malnutrition so as to affect their growth and recovery. But protein intake should within the recommended daily allowance. Excessive protein intake can put extra stress on the kidneys so as to speed up kidney failure.

High quality protein is recommended to children with Nephrotic Syndrome.

High quality protein contains more essential amino acids, which can be absorbed by our body so as not to increase the workload of kidneys. Therefore, it is recommended to children with Nephrotic Syndrome. Egg white, lean meat, fish and milk are all such kind of protein.

Recommended diet to children with Nephrotic Syndrome

Compared with adult patients, children seldom have diet restrictions. But if they have swelling, they should restrict the intake of sodium. Food high in sodium, such as soda biscuit and snacks should be limited as well. Fresh vegetables and fruits are good source of vitamins, dietary fiber and various trace elements, so they should be added into diet.

Diet is just a part of Nephrotic Syndrome treatment. If you want your child to lead a normal life, you should know how to protect their kidneys from being damaged. Traditional Chinese Medicine has thousands of years of history. There are a lot of external therapies in TCM, which have few side effects and are more suitable for children, such as hot compress therapy, medicated foot bath, circle therapy, etc. They can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing and prevent kidney failure.
