salt, low protein, low cholesterol and low fat. Restrict or avoid food high in
protein when porteinuria occurs. Yet, some foods with high-quality protein are
allowed such as lean meat, fish and milk etc. If kidney function declines,
restrict the foods high in potassium such as banana, peach, tomato, sea belt
etc. People with a large amount of proteinuria, swelling and renal
insufficiency, need to consult the doctor or a dietician to make a diet plan
