The following is some tips about the diet which can be a reference to patients with nephrotic syndrome.

First, sodium intake. The patients with edema should have low-salt diet so as not to aggravate edema. Generally, daily salt intake should be no more than 2g. The patients should eat less pickle foods, monosodium glutamate and dietary alkali.

Second, protein intake. For patients, large amounts of plasma proteins will be discharged from the urine so the protein in the body, causing hypoproteinemia.such as fish and lean meat. It will help to alleviate Hypoproteinemia and a number of subsequent complications.

However, high protein diet may make renal blood flow and glomerular filtration rate increased and glomerular capillary be at high pressure. Besides, large amount of protein will also increase urine protein and accelerate glomerular sclerosis.

Third, fat intake. Nephrotic Syndrome patients often have hyperlipidemia, which may cause arteriosclerosis and glomerular damage. So the patients shouldn’t eat animal organs, fat, some seafood and other foods rich in cholesterol and fat.

Fourth, supplement of trace elements. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, the permeability of the glomerular basement membrane will increase so that lots of protein and certain trace elements and hormones will be lost through urine. As a result, the patient will be lacking in calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron and other elements. So they should supplement them appropriately.
