Bread with a glass of milk is a good choice for a breakfast. For healthy patients, they can enjoy many kinds of breads, but for patients with Nephrotic Syndrome or other kidney disease, the choices of breads can be a source of confusion. What kind of bread is best for Nephrotic Syndrome patients? Let’s have a look at the passage.
When your kidneys are attacked by Nephrotic Syndrome, they cannot function well enough to remove metabolic products of minerals, like phosphorus, potassium, sodium, iron, etc. Depending upon the stage of kidney disease, your physician may recommend dietary changes, which may include reducing the amount of phosphorus and potassium level.
What kind of bread can be recommended for Nephrotic Syndrome patients?
Is whole grain bread or wheat bread? Actually, compared with whole grains bread, white bread is fine to eat. Because whole grain bread contains a large amount of phosphorus. Eating too much food high in phosphorus will increase the damaged kidneys’ burden, resulting in serious illness condition. Different from whole grain bread, white bread contains less phosphours and potassium level. Besides, it can help lower cardiovascular disease which are easily caused by kidney disease, and maintain a healthy weight. But it’s my duty to tell you that you shouldn’t eat too much wheat bread every meal as it may come from different from brand or different processes. All in all, patients’ food choices should depend on the basis of their illness condition.

By the way, aside from controlling phosphorus and potassium intake, nephrotic syndrome patients should limit intake of protein and sodium, so as to protect remaining kidney function.
