Is Mango Advisable to Eat by Child Nephrotic Syndrome

Q: my son lived with nephrotic syndrome for 3 years. The disease comes and goes during the past years. My son likes mango very much, but I don’t know whether it is good for his condition or not. Please tell me is mango advisable to eat by child nephrotic syndrome? Thanks a lot.

A: thanks for your inquiry. I am afraid I have to say mango is not a good choice for your son. When kidneys are damaged by Nephrotic Syndrome, it leads to protein in urine, Edema and High Blood Pressure. The disease kidneys are unable to remove excessive potassium to build in blood. Thereby, children with nephrotic syndrome are suggested to avoid diet with rich potassium.

Nephrotic Syndrome,mangoMango contains rich potassium than other fruits, thereby, it is not suggested for child nephrotic syndrome. The other fruits rich in potassium includes:

avocado, oranges, papaya, honeydew and cantaloupe melon, raisins, prunes, pomegranate, kiwi and bananas.

In contrary, fruits that are low in potassium includes:

pears, grapes, pineapple, apples, cherries, peaches, tangerines and berries.

In addition, the excessive potassium also increase the risk of irregular heart beat or heart attack in childhood nephrotic syndrome patients. Depending on your son’s stage of kidney disease and how well his kidney is, the potassium needs for him can vary.

This is just simple and rough answers, for I have not more details on your son’s condition. For any further help, you can email to
