2014-05-29 03:28

What Food Should a Child With Nephrotic Syndrome EatNephrotic Syndrome is a renal disorder which is easy to relapse, especially for children. Diet plays a very important role as foods can affect their illness condition directly. What’s more, parents are responsible for making the diet plan. Now, I will share with you the food that a child with Nephrotic Syndrome can eat.

1. Fresh fruits and vegetables

Eat more fruits and vegetables that can help ease swelling: White gourd, watermelon, mung bean, tomato, laminaria japonica, agaric, celery, and many other fruits and vegetables are natural diuretic. Therefore, eating these foods can increase their urine to remove more wastes and excess fluid from the body so as to ease their swelling.

2. High-quality protein foods

Because of the proteinuria, children should be supplied with enough and high-quality protein foods. Egg white, fish, milk, etc, all can be listed in the diet plan.

3. Foods high in calcium

When protein leaks out of the body, calcium will also be discharged by the kidneys. However, children needs a lot of calcium for growth. Therefore, paying attention to calcium supplement is also necessary for you as a parent.

4. Foods high in vitamin C

Children with Nephrotic Syndrome always have a low immunity, so they are easily infected. Therefore, if your children have a fever or stomach pain, be cautious about the foods for them. Berries and kiwi are two highly recommended fruits. This kind of food can not only enhance the children’s immunity but also improve the kidney function.
