What Is The Proteinuria Diet Therapy For Kidney DiseaseWhat is the diet for proteinuria diet for kidney disease? Kidney disease patients usually have the symptom of proteinuria. This is because the filtration function of glomerular membrane and re-absorption function of renal tubules are damaged, protein will be discharged out of your body through urine. If protein output in the urine is more than 3.5g/24h, it is called massive proteinuria.

There are two categories, including physiological and pathological proteinuria. The former is called functional proteinuria. Common cause of proteinuria are fever, strenuous exercise and upright too long, and physiological proteinuria is temporary which will slowly disappear; while the latter is induced by various of primary and secondary kidney disease and the proteinuria is persistent.

Since proteinuria is a common symptom of kidney disease problems. And we know diet plays an important role in patients, so proteinuria diet therapy is important for kidney disease patients. Besides, proteinuria diet should base on patients’ detailed illness conditions.

1. For chronic nephritis patients, they should choose high quality protein foods such as fish, milk, eggs, lean meat.
