Dietary Principles For Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

2015-02-09 09:03

Dietary Principles For Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsProper diet plays an important role in the treatment of Nephrotic Syndrome. Patients with nephrotic syndrome should be given high calories, high protein and high vitamin diet. Besides, they should limit fluid and sodium as well as potassium intake. The detailed dietary principles are as below:

1. limit potassium level

If you experience high potassium level in blood, you should limit food with rich potassium, such as vegetables, fruits and juices. High potassium level can lead to heart arrest.

2. sodium restriction

If you are struggling for water retention and experiencing swelling, you should limit sodium intake, especially for congestive heart failure and high blood pressure. You should even follow no salt diet. When congestive disease and high blood pressure are treated, you can follow a diet as healthy people.

3. supplement enough calories

Children and adolescents should supplement enough calories. If protein or sugar limitation impacts the intake of calories, this will affect the growth and development of children. Children may experience malnutrition and other medical conditions. As for chronic kidney failure patients, it is very important to consume enough calories. As for fatty diabetic nephropathy patients, they should be cautious about calories intake.

4. proper protein intake

If you have asymptomatic proteinuria or hematuria, you do not have to limit your diet strictly. You only need to reduce protein or salt intake properly. Kidney dysfunction patients should control protein intake such as poultry, seafood and bean products, which is beneficial for reducing the burden on kidneys so as to protect the kidneys. However, how much protein you can eat depends on your medical conditions, otherwise you may experience malnutrition. This is also not good for you to alleviate your kidney disease.
