What Can I Do To Help Prevent Nephrotic Syndrome

What Can I Do To Help Prevent Nephrotic SyndromeAvoiding situations or controlling the other diseases that can contribute to kidney disease can sometimes prevent nephrotic syndrome(NS). Well then, how can you help prevent NS?

First, you can prevent risk factors for kidney damage by:

Keeking blood pressure at less than 125/75mm Hg with medicines, diet and exercise.

Monitor strictly your blood sugar level if you have diabetes.

Maintain healthy lipids levels like cholesterol and triglycerides.

Quit smoking or using other tobacco products.

Second, if you have been diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome, you should do the following things.

Avoid dehydration

Treat diseases that can cause dehydration such as diarrhea, vomiting or fever.

Avoid alcoholic beverages. This is because this kind of beverage will increase urine volume, which can cause dehydration.

Prevent dehydration during hot weather and when you take exercises.

Stopping working outdoors or exercising at the first sign of dizziness, lightheadedness or fatigue.

Avoid X-ray tests that use contrast materials.

Avoid medications that can cause kidney damage.

Prevent heart disease.

You can achieve this via a low fat diet, quitting smoking and getting regular exercise. This can help reduce your overall risk of heart disease and stroke.

Foods to include with nephrotic syndrome

Protein foods

Excessive protein intake should be avoided as the kidneys have to function more vigorously to filter surplus protein. This can cause tubular damage to the kidneys. Moderate protein intake can help preserve renal function. Foods like wheat, legume, egg white, lean meat, dry fish are all a rich source of proteins but should be consumed in moderation.

Low fat foods

Vegetables and fruits are naturally fat free and moreover a good source of essential nutrients. As aforementioned, eat fresh vegetables instead of canned foods to reduce salt intake.

Tightly control accompanying medical conditions, and diet management help prevent Nephrotic Syndrome. Also, if you were diagnosed with it, don’t lose confident. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has a great chance to help you improve your renal function and live a high quality life.
