Nutrition Facts for Stage 4 Lupus NephritisIn Stage 4 Lupus Nephritis, some nutritions including potassium, phosphorous, sodium and protein have their own restrictions. However, what are the recommended levels of these nutritions in diet?

I want to tell you that I cannot give you an exact number that how much you can take, since I do not know your illness condition clearly. You can send you test report to us at kidney-symptoms@hotmail.com so that I can give you specific suggestions. Here are some general suggestions.

Nutrition facts for Stage 4 Lupus Nephritis patients

● Sodium. If you have swelling, you are required to take sodium less than 3g per day. High sodium levels will aggravate high blood pressure and swelling.

● Protein. Eat less protein is helpful for reducing burden on kidneys since protein will produce more wastes. In general, 0.4-0.6 grams per kg of body weight is recommended. Therefore, protein amount should be calculated by your doctor.

● Potassium and phosphorous. The intake of these two minerals are based on your test results. To prevent from hyperkalemia, potassium is reduced to 2g each day. 600 mg of phosphorous for daily intake is suggested.

To achieve that goals, you have to limit or even avoid some foods and drinks. If you need recommendations on this aspect, you can leave a message below. In the following passages, I will focus on the treatment for Stage 4 Lupus Nephritis

Treatment

Stage 4 Lupus Nephritis is very near dialysis. Some patients may already have started dialysis due to some severe symptoms or complications. However, dialysis can help patients temporarily and may bring some side effects such as vomiting, muscle cramps, dizziness, and low blood pressure, and so on.

Therefore, I recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy as a main treatment. This therapy is based Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and can restore immune structure, improve blood circulation and repair damaged renal tissues. In other word, this therapy is to treat Lupus Nephritis from the root, that is, improving kidney function.
