People with nephrotic syndrome cannot take high quantity protein foods for they will increase the burden for damaged kidneys. These food will increase the damage to kidney tubular. Thereby, patients with nephrotic syndrome are suggested to take high quality protein foods, such as dry fish, poultry, egg white, lean meat, wheat, legumes and sprouts etc. Remember to take high quality protein foods in a moderation.
2. Limit salt intake
Low sodium (salt) intake helps patients relieve swelling in hands, legs or other parts of the body. In addition, low -sodium diet contribute to preventing high blood pressure which is one leading cause or typical symptom for kidney disease patients.
3. Fat meat
Fat meat is another food that Nephrotic Syndrome patients can not eat because of it is high in lipid. Nephrotic Syndrome is an illness marked by severe leakage of protein. Protein is an important nutrition of our body, and when large amount of them are leaked out, liver will secrete lipoprotein to meet the basic demand of the body and this can cause hyperlipemia directly. Hyperlipemia is the real reason for Nephrotic Syndrome patients to avoid fat meat.
