What Food Should Be Avoided During Nephrotic SyndromeDiet plays an important role in controlling disease. If you eat incorrectly, your condition may get worse. What food should be avoided during Nephrotic Syndrome?

-Excess protein

It should be avoided because a very high protein diet may cause tubular damage to the kidneys as the kidneys will have to filter more of the proteins. But moderate protein intake is mandatory to compensate for the protein loss in the urine.

-Lots of Sodium

Sodium in the diet should be minimum so as to prevent fluid accumulation and edema, so the following food high in sodium should be avoided, such as salted or canned meat, foods containing baking soda and ajinomoto, bakery products, salted nuts, commercial cheese, preservative containing foods, noodle mixes, salted wafers, popcorn, snacks, chips, etc.

-High amount of fats

Patients with Nephrotic Syndrome usually have high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, so excess of oily food and saturated fats such as ghee and margarine should be avoided.

In addition, you should pay attention to potassium and phosphorus intake. If your blood potassium level is high, you had better avoid food high in potassium, such as bananas, potatoes, kiwi-fruit, etc.

And diet is only used as adjuvant treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome patients. If you really want to control the disease well, a correct medical treatment is needed. Correct treatment should not only help you control symptoms and complications, but also repair kidney damage and improve kidney function and prevent the relapse of the disease. Here we recommend Toxin-Removing Treatment. It has showed remarkable clinical effect in treating Nephrotic Syndrome in Peking Tung Shin Tang Chinese Medical Hospital. After about half month’s treatment, swelling will vanish, and proteinuria will decrease and eventually turn negative. After about one month’s treatment, the disease will be under control. With the improvement of your condition, there are not so many diet restrictions.
