Dates for Nephrotic Syndrome

A kidney-friendly diet for Nephrotic Syndrome patients should include low-sodium, limited protein, reduce potassium and phosphorous.

Date is rich in potassium.High potassium in the blood can lead to abnormal hear rate, shortness of breath and muscle weakness. Therefore, if your child has high level of serum potassium, he or she is not allowed to eat dates. Well, if his or her serum potassium level is normal, you can give dates to him/her.

Medicines for child with Nephrotic Syndrome

You know, no certain food can solve the underlying problem, and a diet cannot be taken as the replacement of medication. Treatment goals for Nephrotic Syndrome should include:

-Controlling symptoms

-Improving kidney function

It is not difficult to control symptoms by giving medicines to the child. However, commonly used medicines for Nephrotic Syndrome like steroids and immunosuppressants can only reduce inflammation but cannot clear up the wastes of inflammatory reactions, namely, immune complexes. That is to say, over-the-counter medicines only achieve the first goal.

To achieve the second treatment goal, I recommend you to take Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM ). Most of them are plants, so TCMs are very natural for children. More important, the effective ingredients of TCM can purify the blood by dissolving and excreting immune complexes.
