Diet Therapy For Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

Diet Therapy For Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsIn recent years, the popular treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome is Traditional Chinese Medicine. Though compared to western medicines, Traditional Chinese Medicine has a long term effect, but it almost has no side effect and it can effectively block the progress of renal fibrosis. Of course, except treatment, the diet therapy for nephrotic syndrome patients is also important.

The reasonable diet not only can supply the nutrient substance that we need, but also can build up our immunity to resist disease, besides it has the effect of treating disease. Next, let us see the specific diet therapy for nephrotic syndrome patients.

1. Limit water intake. If you have serious edema, you should keep free-salt diet, while if you have no obvious edema, you need not overly limit your water intake.

2. Limit salt intake. Traditional Chinese Medicine thinks that salt can get in kidney and overflow fluid, so you should limit your salt intake if you have edema. But the specific amount of salt intake should be planned according to your individual condition.

3. Control protein intake. Excess protein intake can increase the burden of your kidney, so you should control your protein intake properly. Besides, you can increase your amino acid intake to supply your demand for protein.

4. Bland diet. Traditional Chinese Medicine thinks that greasy food can damage our spleen and stomach, while bland diet is advocated due to easy to be digested. Modern research also thinks nephrotic syndrome patients should limit their animal fat intake and avoid the food rich in cholesterol, in addition, the food rich in unsaturated fatty acid should be eaten more.

5. Supply enough heat diet. It is necessary for the patients to supply enough heat diet and some microelements such as calcium, iron, etc, and vitamin A, D, B2, C.

In conclusion, scientific reasonable diet not only can reduce the burden of kidneys and regulate kidney function, but also can adjust the state of acid-base imbalance.
