Is It Okay For Nephrotic Syndrome Patients To Drink Cocoa Or Chocolate DrinksIs it okay fro Nephrotic Syndrome patients to drink cocoa or chocolate drinks? This is one frequently asked question by Nephrotic Syndrome patients. Here I will give you the answer.

Nephrotic Syndrome patients are not recommended to drink cocoa drinks due to the following reasons:

1. Feel thirsty

Carbonated beverages contains lots of pigments, additives and preservatives which are all harmful to body health. These substances need much water to be metabolized. Besides, caffeine in cocoa have diuretic property which will discharge water from the body. Therefore, if nephrotic syndrome patients drink cocoa drinks, they will feel thirsty.

2. Affect digestive systems

Carbonated beverages will damage digestive systems, affect appetite and even cause gastrointestinal dysfunction, leading to gastrointestinal disease.

3. Lead to osteoporosis

Cocoa contains high levels of phosphorus. A large amount of phosphorus intake will affect the absorption of calcium, causing imbalance of calcium and phosphorus. Once calcium loss occurs, nephrotic syndrome patients are easy to suffer from osteoporosis, bone fracture and bone pain.

In view of the above side effects, Nephrotic Syndrome patients should avoid drinking cocoa or chocolate drinks. Besides, foods or drinks with high phosphorus level should also be avoided or limited. Common high phosphorus foods include dairy products, milk, cream soup, ice cream, organ meat, beer, nuts and grain seeds.

Aside from diet, Nephrotic Syndrome patients also need to take medical treatment to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function so as to help patients live a high quality life. Here I recommend Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. The active ingredients in this therapy can eliminate immune complexes and inflammatory factors from your kidneys. Besides, it can also dilate blood vessels, prevent inflammation, degrade extracellular matrix and provide nutrients. Gradually kidney function can be improved and their life qualities will also be improved.
