Foods high in protein like dairy products, red meats, nuts and seeds, bean products should be avoided. Yet, protein is one of the necessary nutrition for out bodies. Diabetics with proteinuria have lost so many proteins so that they may experience fatigue due to malnutrition. Therefore, they are suggested to take high-quality protein foods like egg white, lean meat, fish and moderate milk.
Recommended protein intake is 0.6 to 0.8 gram per kg of body weight.
Exercise and proteinuria
Taking proper exercise can help adjust the metabolism so as to maintain normal blood sugar levels. Patients with proteinuria are not recommended to take high fever or heavy exercise that can induce or aggravate proteinuria. Yet, some mild activities such as walking and biking are good choices for enhancing immunity.
