Generally, patients of proteinuria can supply some of the protein by proper food captaining protein. The thought of that kidney disease patients can’t eat food containing protein is wrong and sided. Even if the Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)develops to the end stage of renal failure, the patients are suggested to adopt proper high quality of low protein diet.
For the patients with kidney disease, the intake of protein per day should be
0.6-0.8g/kg weight. If the patients are in the end stage of renal failure,
especially for patients on peritoneal dialysis, the intake of protein should
increase properly, and the amount should be about 1.2-1.5g/kg weight. As for
patients of nephritic syndrome, they will lose large amount of protein every
day. If their renal functions are still normal, it is suggested to take high
protein diets to rectify the hypoproteinemia and relieve the edema. But make
sure the protein should be high quality protein.
When the patients have azotemia or early stage of renal insufficiency, they
should restrain the intake of protein. Or this will accelerate the development
of the kidney disease.
In a word, the diets differ from the different disease and different
conditions. When the patients found they have large amount of proteinuria, they
shouldn’t be too scared; when the patients’ proteinuria is not very sever, they
shouldn’t neglect it. All the patients should go to see the doctor to determine
the illness condition and make reasonable treatment schedule. Only by repairing
the damaged renal function from the pathology damage angle can the patients
eliminate the proteinuria.
