Is Tofu Bad for Lupus Nephritis

Is Tofu Bad for Lupus NephritisWhen kidneys are affected by Lupus, patients should choose foods to eat carefully. This is because some foods may trigger or worsen Lupus symptoms easily. Tofu is one source of high-quality protein. Is tofu good or bad for Lupus Nephritis patients?

Firstly, we should know tofu is made from soybean that belongs to beans. When Lupus Nephritis happens, it is more likely to be accompanied by heavy proteinuria. In this case, if patients' kidney function is quite high, they are suggested to increase their protein intake relatively for preventing hypoproteinemia, low plasma osmotic pressure, malnutrition and fluid retention. In most cases, patients are recommended to increase their protein intake to 1.0~1.2g/kg body weight. From this point, it seems tofu is one good choice to supplement patients' protein.

However, some other reports claim beans and soy products contain amines and hydrazines, which may cause Lupus symptoms easily. In view of this, patients with Lupus Nephritis had better not eat tofu freely, since it is one soy product.

To make sure Lupus Nephritis patients follow their diet plan safely and healthily, we give out several suggestions to help them develop a scientific meal plan.

- Garlic: Allicin, ajoene and thiosulfinates in garlic is believed to enhance the activity of white blood cells, so as to active immune system. This can flare Lupus symptoms.

- Alfalfa sprouts: This type of food contains one substance called L-canavanine, which can stimulate the immune system to cause inflammation in Lupus Nephritis patients.

- High-sodium foods: Lupus Nephritis patients often have swelling and high blood pressure, while sodium can worsen these two problems. What's worse, extra sodium will tax kidneys a lot, so patients should avoid salty foods.
