What Can I Eat with Nephrotic Syndrome and Type 2 Diabetes

Question: I am a patient of Nephrotic Syndrome Suffering from 2011. And I am also a type 2 Diabetic patient. Kindly let me know the diet. Thanks.

What Can I Eat with Nephrotic Syndrome and Type 2 DiabetesAnswer: Nowadays the morbidity of type 2 diabetes becomes higher and higher due to unhealthy lifestyle and some other factors. Exposed to high blood sugar level for years, capillaries become fragile so that protein leaks into the urine. In the early stage of Diabetic Nephropathy, there is microalbuminuria. With the progression of Diabetic Nephropathy, there is massive proteinuria. When protein leakage is more than 3 g/24h, Nephrotic Syndrome occurs. Besides medications, diet can help you control both Nephrotic Syndrome and Diabetes to certain extent.

Food low in sugar

Diabetics should limit their intake of sugar and food high in sugar, such as cake, chocolate and some fruits, because they may increase your blood sugar level further.

High quality protein

Though a lot of protein leaks into urine, it is unnecessary for you to supplement excessive protein, because it may increase the workload of kidneys so as to worsen proteinuria. Moderate high quality protein such as egg white and lean meat intake is OK.

Fresh vegetables

Fresh vegetables are high in vitamins, which can protect your from many diseases, such as cold and infection. Besides, they are packed with rich fibers, which helps lower blood sugar level and reduce blood cholesterol level.

In addition, you should pay attention to the intake of carbohydrates, fat and some other minerals, such as potassium, phosphorus and calcium.

As long as you have massive proteinuria, your GFR will gradually decrease. And 5-20 years later you may have kidney failure. Therefore, importance should not only attached to diet, but also the treatment you receive now. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, there are many therapies to help your kidneys and improve kidney function, such as Mai Kang Mixture, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath and decoction.
