What Should Be Included in the Diet to Stop Proteinuria for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

Question: My 3 year old son underwent treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome for 6 months. He was cured. After 5 months, protein started coming in the urine and level is 3+. Please let know what should be included in the diet so that protein should not coming in urine.

What Should Be Included in the Diet to Stop Proteinuria for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsAnswer: Nephrotic Syndrome is a nonspecific kidney disease characterized by proteinuria, swelling, hypoproteinemia and hyperlipemia. It can not be cured. What doctors usually do is to help patients eliminate symptoms. But due to some factors, Nephrotic Syndrome comes back now and then.

Diet plays an important role in controlling Nephrotic Syndrome.


Nephrotic Syndrome patients should pay attention to the intake of protein. Too much protein intake puts extra stress on kidneys so as to worsen proteinuria. Too little protein intake can not satisfy the need of body. As we all know, children need large quantity of protein to grow. How much protein your son should eat depends on his medical condition.

-Fresh vegetables and fruits

Fresh vegetables and fruits are packed with rich vitamins, fiber and trace elements. They are all good for health, so they should be added into diet.


Nephrotic Syndrome patients should restrict salt intake to alleviate swelling.

Diet is not enough for you to stop proteinuria. If you want to control proteinuria, you have to find a suitable treatment plan to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. Immunotherapy can cleanse immune complexes from the kidneys and blood to eliminate kidney inflammation so as to stop protein leakage. It can also set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. Moreover, it can strengthen your immune system to help you fight against the disease and make your whole body harmonious and balanced to reduce the relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome.
