What Is the Rationale for Restricting Protein Intake in Nephrotic Syndrome

What Is the Rationale for Restricting Protein Intake in Nephrotic SyndromeNephrotic Syndrome is a collection of symptoms like proteinuria, swelling, hyperlipemia and hypoproteinemia. Besides medical treatment, Nephrotic Syndrome patients are often required to follow a restricted diet, such as protein restriction. What is the rationale for restricting protein intake in Nephrotic Syndrome?

Causes of protein restriction for Nephrotic Syndrome patients

As we referred, Nephrotic Syndrome patients often have massive proteinuria. A lot of protein leaks into the urine, why not supplement protein? I think many Nephrotic Syndrome patients have the similar doubt. We indeed need to supplement moderate protein to satisfy the need of our body, but it does not mean we should eat without restriction. When protein comes into body and is digested, it does not produce the useful substances, such as amino acids to support our body, but also makes a lot of waste products of urea, which increases the workload of kidneys so as to speed up kidney failure. Besides, too much protein intake worsens your proteinuria.

High quality protein is preferred for Nephrotic Syndrome patients.

We should know which kind of protein is good for our body. High quality protein contains more essential amino acids, which can be absorbed by our body to maintain its function, so it is a good choice for you if you have Nephrotic Syndrome. Lean meat, fish, milk, egg white and so on are all high quality protein.

Acceptable daily protein intake for Nephrotic Syndrome patients

How much protein you can take depends on your remaining kidney function. There is a general introduction in How Much Protein Should A Nephrotic Syndrome Patient Have Daily. If you would like to know the answer, please send your medical test report to igacure@gmail.com. After analyzing your case, we will reply you.
