2015-12-23 05:23

How Could A Nephrotic Syndrome Patient Spend Christmas Happily And SafelyTomorrow evening is Christmas Eve and the day after tomorrow is Christmas Day. Are you satisfied it? Yes, we are all looking forward to its coming. However, for a person with Nephrotic Syndrome (NS), they may have some worries. How could he or she spend this Christmas happily and safely?

Healthy eating on Christmas

The Christmas feast is feared by persons on a special diet, their family members, and members of the health care team. Here will give you some suggestion on Christmas holiday.

1. Avoid high sodium food

Processed foods such as ham, smoked chicken or turkey, sausages, canned meat or fish/vegetables, ice cream, soy sauce, salted fish and ketchup should be avoided since sodium is used as a, preservative to process these foods.

2. Avoid fruits or vegetables high in potassium

Fruits such as papaya, soursop, custard apple, ripe banana, dried fruits (raisins, prunes, mixed fruit, cherries) are high in potassium and should be avoided.

Vegetables like pumpkin, spinach, mustard greens, mushrooms, beetroot and canned mixed vegetables should be avoided because of their high potassium content. In addition, all peas, beans and nuts are high in potassium and should be avoided.

3. Use natural seasonings

Natural seasonings such as onions, garlic, pepper, lemon and fresh vegetables should be used instead of salt, powdered seasonings, soy sauce and ketchup. White/granulated sugar or honey should be used to sweeten instead of brown sugar, molasses and wet sugar.

Chinese medicine treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome

Steroids are commonly used to treat nephrotic syndrome. They can help control some symptoms quickly. But they should not be used for a long time because the side effects of steroids are very huge. On the contrary, Chinese medicines are natural and are welcomed by more and more patients. Chinese medicine treatments especially Immunotherapy can treat Nephrotic Syndrome fundamentally. Immunotherapy can not only relieve symptoms such as edema, protein in urine and poor appetite but also repair injured kidney tissues and improve kidney function.

Healthy eating and Chinese medicine treatments can help a Nephrotic Syndrome patient have a prosperous Christmas and a happy New Year.
