Diet for Purpura Nephritis Patients
Reasonable diet for Purpura Nephritis patients plays an import role in the rehabilitation of illness. What should patients eat? How much is appropriate? We can formulate program according to the type of kidney disease and the severity of illness.
1. Can patients with Purpura Nephritis have salt and alkali?
For normal adults, the intake of salt is about 5 to 6g. In some areas, every day, the intake of salt is 12g for each person. If people eat more salt and alkali which contain sodium, it is easy for water to stay in their body inducing edema. So patients with edema should control the intake of salt and alkali. Patients should take 2 to 3g salt, which is called low-salt diet. It is not scientific to have salt-free diet for a long time, which can result in fatigue and dizziness.
2. How much is the intake of water for Purpura Nephritis patients?
Generally, normal urine is 1000 to 2000ml a day. For patients who have Acute Nephritis, oliguria of Acute Renal Failure as well as Purpura Nephritis, Chronic Renal Failure accompanied by oliguria and edema, they should control the intake of water. If the water can’t be discharged, it will stay in the body to aggravate edema and blood pressure. However, there is no limit of water for patients whose urine is normal. In addition, patients of urinary tract infection, such as acute pyelonephritis, urethritis, cystitis, should drink more water and more urinating, which is beneficial to the rehabilitation of illness.
3. Can patients with Purpura Nephritis eat fish, shrimp, eggs and meat? Because some patients of Purpura Nephritis think fish and shrimp are not good to kidney, they don’t them consciously. Actually, there is high quality protein in these foods. If patients have allergic diseases, such as Purpura, Purpura Nephritis or have heterosexual protein allergy or have the history of fish allergy, they should be cautious of eating these foods. But there is no need to taboo. Fish, shrimp, eggs and meat are rich in animal protein, which are the main construction materials of cells and tissues. Foods which contain proteins can be resolved by liver and discharged by kidney. So when renal function drops, patients should decrease the intake of protein based on the principle of meeting the nutritional needs of human metabolism and balancing the burden of kidney.
4. Don’t be crapulent. Don’t eat unclean food.
In addition to take regular treatment, patients with Purpura Nephritis should pay much attention to their daily diet, which also plays an important role. Hope what mentioned above is helpful.
