What to Eat with Massive Proteinuria
Proteinuria is a typical symptom of earl stage renal disease. Most kidney patients are troubled by it and fight against proteinuria for life-long. Improper diet may make this condition worse. What to eat with massive proteinuria? Read on to learn more information.
Why proteinuria is difficult to treat? There are two reasons:
1. Proteinuria is the inevitable product of impaired renal function. As long as the renal function is not completely restored, proteinuria may always be present. Unfortunately, it can not be reversed after impaired renal function, so it is difficult to cure proteinuria completely.
2. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) itself is difficult to cure. Renal function of patients with stage 1 or 2 has not been impaired. At this time, active treatment of proteinuria can be cured and the condition can be treated. Once renal insufficiency occurs and substantial damage occurs, it is difficult to cure, and other symptoms of kidney disease are also difficult to treat.
Since proteinuria can not be restored, can you only wait for renal failure? Wrong!
At present, the anti-inflammatory and anti-proteinuria method with steroids and immunosuppressive agents has a good effect on proteinuria. In addition, some other drugs, such as ACEI, ARBs, and statins, have been studied to have the effect of reducing proteinuria. As long as you adhere to the treatment of proteinuria, it can generally be reduced to less than 1g, which does not cause much harm to renal function.
Proteinuria reduction is not a problem. It's difficult to maintain its stability.
This is also a problem encountered by many kidney patients. Although they insist on taking medicine, albuminuria is still easy to relapse. What's the matter? Most of the relapse of kidney patients is related to some bad daily behavior habits, among which dietary habits are the main reason. Then what to eat?
Insist on eating foods that contain high-quality protein
Patients with massive proteinuria usually have hypoproteinemia. In order to avoid malnutrition and prevent the deterioration of immunity, it is suggested that kidney patients can take appropriate amount of food containing high-quality protein every day to ensure the balance of protein in the body. Common foods such as meat, eggs, soy products, milk and so on are all high quality protein.
However, to avoid eating too much protein and aggravate proteinuria, we need to control the amount of protein. For patients with large amount of proteinuria, it is generally advisable to ingest 0.8-1 g/kg of protein per day. For patients with hypoproteinemia, it can be adjusted to 1.2 g-1.5 g. Normally, it is enough to ingest 1 g-1.2g.
Insist on eating foods rich in dietary fiber
With the improvement of living standards, many people eat more and more delicate staple foods and eat more meat, which leads to the intake of dietary fiber is far from enough. The unbalanced diet structure is also the main cause of nephropathy. Studies have shown that high dietary fiber intake can reduce inflammation and mortality of chronic kidney disease. Therefore, kidney patients are encouraged to eat more foods high in dietary fiber, which include cereals, potatoes, beans, nuts, fresh vegetables and fruits.
Don't eat foods with high salt content
"Heavy taste" diet is also a common disease of modern people. No matter which kind of food is high in salt. Studies have shown that too much salt not only increases the incidence of chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, kidney disease, but also raises the risk of cancer.
For kidney patients, too much salt will increase the metabolic burden. If the excess sodium can not be passed out of body, further damage will be caused to the kidneys so as to worsen proteinuria. In addition, too much salt can also affect the efficacy of some anti-proteinuria drugs and antihypertensive drugs, which is not conducive to the recovery of proteinuria.
Don't eat over oily or sweet food.
Too much fat, cholesterol and carbohydrate intake is not conducive to the control of "three high", thus accelerating renal failure. It can also lead to overnutrition, aggravating the reaction of kidney inflammation, increasing toxin levels, impairing filtration function, and then affecting the treatment of proteinuria.
