Nephrotic Syndrome patients are suggested to follow a specific diet plan which is not only able to alleviate symptoms such as proteinuria, swelling, hypoalbuminemia and hyperlipidemia but also improve kidney functions. The diet plan is in the following.

1. Eat more fruits and vegetables which can ease swelling or edema.

Nephrotic syndrome patients usually have swelling, so they can eat some foods which is able to increase their urine to remove wastes and excess fluid from the body so as to ease their swelling. These foods include white gourd, watermelon, mung bean, tomato, laminaria japonica, agaric, celery and many other vegetables that can work as natural diuretics.

2. High quality protein foods

Damaged kidneys can not remove excess protein intake out of the body, and excessive protein intake will burden your kidneys. Therefore, high quality foods rather than high quantity foods are recommended for nephrotic syndrome patients. High quality foods include dry fish, egg white, lean meat, wheat, legumes and sprouts and so on. Also the amount of high quality foods should be moderate.

3. Foods with high vitamin C

Foods with vitamin C are able to protect residual kidney function and enhance immunity. For this, you may eat kiwi fruit and cranberry.

4. Omega-3 fatty acids foods

It is reported that omega-3 fatty acids help reduce the inflammations on people with nephrotic syndrome. The following foods are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, like flaxseed walnuts, olive oil, canola oil, Atlantic herring, soy nuts, butternuts, tuna, salmon and wheat germ, etc.

5. Drink some herbal tea

Some natural herbals such as nettle leaf, dandelion root and salvia can increase the rate of kidney filtering wastes and improve kidney function. If you persist drinking such herbal tea for a period time, you will find that the blood urea nitrogen level is reduced to some extent.
