What Is the Recommended Diet for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

What Is the Recommended Diet for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsNephrotic Syndrome patients should pay attention to what they eat and drink, because they seriously affect the prognosis of Nephrotic Syndrome. What is the recommended diet for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?

About salt intake

If your Nephrotic Syndrome is not stabilized, you should limit the intake of salt in case that it worsens your swelling. Generally speaking, its consumption should be controlled into 2 g per day. Sometimes it is necessary for you to avoid salt intake if your edema is very severe. When edema disappears, you can follow a normal intake of salt.

About protein intake

Because of massive protein leakage, most Nephrotic Syndrome patients have protein deficiency in body and swelling. In such case, you should supplement moderate protein, but you should avoid massive protein intake, because it increases blood flow into the kidneys, worsens proteinuria and speeds up glomerulosclerosis. How much protein you can eat depends on your remaining kidney function.

About vitamin intake

With Nephrotic Syndrome, it is likely for you to have vitamin deficiency. Vitamins play a very important role in maintaining the normal function of our body, for example, vitamin C strengthens immune system and affects the absorption of iron. Besides vitamin tablets, you can supplement vitamins through fresh vegetables and fruits.

About trace elements intake

We can also not live without trace elements. What trace elements you should eat depends on your medical condition. If your potassium level is high, you should limit food rich in potassium. If your calcium level is low, you can eat food high in calcium. If your phosphorus level is high, you should restrict phosphorus intake, etc.
