What foods to avoid with Nephrotic Syndrome? If you want to know the answer, the following information may be helpful for you.

Massive protein intake

Nephrotic Syndrome patients often have massive protein leakage. The leaky kidney is like a sieve. The more protein you consume, the more protein it filters. Besides, when you consume a lot of protein, your kidneys have to work hard to remove the waste products from the blood, which is bad for recovery. Therefore, to reduce protein leakage and decrease the workload of kidneys, Nephrotic Syndrome patients are often asked to avoid too much protein intake.

Food high in sodium

Nephrotic Syndrome patients also often have severe swelling. Too much sodium intake can make you thirsty, which may make you drink excessive water and sodium can retain fluid in body so as to worsen swelling. Therefore, when you have severe swelling, you had better avoid sodium intake. When it is relieved, you can follow a low sodium intake.

Other food

If your blood potassium level is high, you had better avoid food high in potassium, such as bananas. If your blood phosphorus level is high, you had better avoid food high in phosphorus, such as nuts. If your blood cholesterol level is high, you had better avoid food high in fat. Therefore, which food you should avoid depends on your medical conditions.
