Strike a balance to rest and exercise

When you do not have obvious symptoms, such as high blood pressure, swelling and protein leakage, you can do some gentle exercise, such as walking, jogging and tai chi to improve your condition. If you have severe swelling, high blood pressure or kidney function impairment, you had better have a good rest.

Pay attention to diet

If your kidney function has been severely damaged, you should limit the intake of protein to reduce proteinuria. You should also guarantee the intake of carbohydrates to control sugar level and through plenty of energy intake to reduce the metabolism of protein. Besides, sodium should also be limited into 3g. If your potassium level is high, you should restrict its intake as well.

Have an eye on symptom changes
