Dietary Restrictions for Someone with Diabetic Nephropathy

Dietary Restrictions for Someone with Diabetic NephropathyDiabetic Nephropathy is resulted from a long-term history of type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes. To support the therapeutic effects of medical therapies, patients should pay highly attention to their dietary restrictions.

The basic dietary requirement is to control Diabetic Nephropathy patients’ high blood sugar and high blood pressure and reduce the burden on kidneys. Based on this, the following dietary restrictions are helpful to slow down the progress of diabetic kidney disease.

Point 1: Extra amount of sugar or sodium

Excessive sugar intake can make patients’ blood glucose out of the control, while extra sodium intake can trigger or worsen patients’ high blood pressure and swelling, both of which are common complications of diabetic nephropathy. Thereby, it is necessary to develop a low-sodium, low-sugar or even sugar-free diet plan.

Point 2: High-protein diet

Albuminuria is usually the first sign of diabetic kidney disease. If uncontrolled effective, protein and albumin leakage will cause further kidney damage and aggravate patients’ overall health condition easily. Controlling the intake of protein can reduce the burden on kidneys and help alleviate albuminuria.

Point 3: Extra potassium and phosphorus intake

Diabetic Nephropathy patients don’t need to limit their potassium or phosphorus intake unless their blood potassium or phosphorus level is higher than the normal. Otherwise, elevated potassium or phosphorus level is more likely to cause irregular heartbeat, bone disease, skin itching and other problems.

Point 4: Too much fluid intake
