To know clearly about foods for kid with Nephrotic Syndrome, we need to firstly understand what Nephrotic Syndrome is.

Nephrotic Syndrome actually is not an independent illness, but a group of clinical manifestations which include severe proteinuria, swelling, hyperlipidaemia and hypoproteinemia.

Medicines are required to alleviate them, but if patients do not pay attention to their daily diet, these symptoms will be aggravated severely.

For a 5 years old child with Nephrotic Syndrome, the following diet arrangement is needed:

1. High quality protein

Urea nitrogen is a waste that is formed when protein is consumed in our body. High protein intake will increase the production of urea nitrogen, which can increase kidney burden, so limiting protein intake is generally needed. However, for a 5 years old child, he needs protein to meet his physical development and mental development. High quality protein can be fully consumed in our body and meanwhile produce less wastes. Therefore, high quality protein is recommended for children with Nephrotic Syndrome.
