2. If patients have no swelling, they have no need to limit salt, water and protein intake, and they can eat shrimp moderately. When nephritis patients suffer from swelling, they need to follow a low salt diet. Nephritis patients with severe swelling cannot eat shrimp and other stimulating foods.

3. Chronic nephritis patients are easy to suffer from hyperphosphatemia while shrimp contains rich phosphorus. At this condition, shrimp cannot be eaten otherwise it will worsen hyperphosphatemia and cause further kidney damage.
