Second, bottle gourd can alleviate the symptom of edema, which is a basic characteristic of Nephrotic Syndrome. Excess water and toxins are flushed out due to the diuretic properties of this vegetable.

Third, urinary infection is a common combination of Nephrotic Syndrome. Bottle gourd reduces the chance of urinary infection because it is alkalizing and has a diuretic effect. Besides, it supports the urinary system of our body by reducing burning sensation from high acidic urination.
