Standard for protein intake in nephrotic syndrome2017-09-21 14:25
Because nephrotic syndrome patients lose large amounts of protein from urine, the body will lack protein, long time hypoproteinemia, resulting in negative nitrogen balance, so that the body is in a state of malnutrition. Therefore, if not given high protein diet, the body is unfavorable, may make lower serum protein, anemia, malnutrition, edema and so on.
At this time, adults can be in accordance with the weight of 1.5 to 2 grams per kilogram of protein, and if the weight is 70 kg, should eat 105~140 grams of protein. Should choose the egg, meat, chicken, fish, etc., these foods contain high quality protein more, say that they are of high quality protein, because of their high biological value. High quality protein accounts for 60 to 70% of the total protein. Modern studies have shown that high protein diet can lead to high glomerular perfusion, high filtration, promote glomerulosclerosis, renal interstitial inflammation and fibrosis, so do not advocate long-term eating high protein diet.
If nephrotic syndrome enters chronic and non severe periods, protein intake should be reduced by 0.7 to 1 grams per kilogram of body weight per day and 49~70 grams per day with 70 kg body weight.
If the occurrence of nephrotic syndrome renal damage, nitrogen retention syndrome, blood urea nitrogen and serum creatinine was higher than normal, it is necessary to limit the amount of protein, and low protein diet, adult daily per kilogram of body weight 0.5 ~ 0.7 grams, if the weight is 70 kilograms, so all day long can eat about 35 to 49 grams of protein.
