Nephrotic Syndrome is caused due to various diseases and underlying disorders that damage the kidneys, leading to excessive leakage of protein in the urine. These disorders include membranous nephropathy, diabetic nephropathy, and focal segmental glomerular sclerosis, etc. The glomeruli, small blood vessels that filter wastes and excess water from the blood, are damaged. For people with Nephrotic Syndrome, a proper diet can help alleviate the symptoms and slow the progression of kidney disease.
Firstly, Nephrotic Syndrome patients are not recommended to have a
high-protein diet, which may increase the burden of the kidneys, caused further
damages, and result in development of renal insufficiency. Therefore, a
low-protein diet, which reduce protein breakdown is more suitable.
Secondly, Nephrotic Syndrome patients need to arrange a low-sodium diet in
order to control the swelling and high blood pressure. So foods with high salt
content and use of table salt should be restricted.
Thirdly, Nephrotic Syndrome patients should limit the intake of high
phosphorous foods, such as nuts, beans, and dairy products. Sodium may limit the
kidneys' ability to eliminate phosphorus from the blood stream. High blood
phosphorus levels can cause weaken bones, and make them easier to break.
Fourthly, Nephrotic Syndrome patients had better arrange a low saturated fat
and cholesterol diet, which can decrease your risk of cardiovascular disease.
Moreover, have a adequate intake of caloric diet, which can help keep an ideal
body weight and maintain protein stores.
Diet therapy plays a complement role in Nephrotic Syndrome treatment and
