At the growth and development stage, children should supplement plenty of calcium to meet the need. When children suffered nephritis, masses of calcium in body can run off. So calcium supplement is an important factor of diet for children with nephritis. Generally, here are some factors to the importance of calcium supplement as follows:
One, children patients with Nephritic Syndrome suffer masses of protein lose
discharged with urine. When the protein in urine is discharged from the body,
calcium in blood, which can easily combine with protein, will be also discharged
from body with protein.
Two, However, the excess lose of calcium with protein in urine leads to the
body calcium deficiency. Consequently, if children patients do not supplement
calcium timely or take in food abundant with calcium, they can suffer from low
blood calcium,tetany and convulsions caused by low calcium.
Three, the treatment of hormone can inhibit the absorption of vitamin D and
calcium. So if children with serious condition take hormone for a long term, it
will aggravate the condition of calcium deficiency.
Therefore, children patients with Nephritic Syndrome should pay attention to
supplementing vitamin D and calcium to avoid calcium deficiency.
