Diet Advices For Nephropathy PatientsGenerally speaking, kidney disease patients follow a strict diet in daily life, because diet helps a lot to control their symptoms and delays the kidney disease progress into kidney failure. Nephropathy patients usually consult what they can eat and what they can not. OK, here we will give some diet advices for nephropathy patients.

1. Proper protein intake

High quality protein intake rather than high quantity protein intake is recommended for kidney disease patients. High quantity protein intake will bring much burden to your kidneys. Properly high quality protein intake delays the progression of kidney function loss and prevents the accumulation of toxins in your body. With this regard, nephropathy patients can choose some high quality protein such as fish, lean meat, milk, eggs, etc.

2. Low phosphorus diet

We know kidneys can keep balance of electrolytes like phosphorus and calcium. However, the impaired kidneys fail to keep phosphorus level in a normal value, easily causing high phosphorus level. High phosphorus level will stop the absorption of adequate calcium, so low calcium will appear and bone problems like bone pain easily occur. In this case, in your daily diet you should limit phosphorus intake and follow a low phosphorus diet so as not to worsen your illness conditions.

3. Limit potassium intake

Nephropathy patients usually have high potassium level, which is because injured kidneys can not remove excess potassium out of the body, leading to the build up of potassium in your body. Our experts suggest nephropathy patients should limit potassium intake. High potassium level can be dangerous and cause irregular heartbeat, weakness and some complications. Therefore, patients should avoid potassium -rich foods, including bananas, tomatoes, potatoes, citrus, squash and so on.

4. Limit liquid intake

Edema is a common symptom in nephropathy patients, and fluid retention will cause edema or swelling. Severe edema can make people difficult in breathing and sometimes can be life-threatening when pulmonary edema occurs. Patients should limit liquid intake to alleviate their edema symptom.

5. Low salt or sodium diet

As the above mentioned, the fluid in the salt will worsen edema. Besides, high salt or sodium intake will also cause high blood pressure and even aggravate hypertension in nephropathy patients.
