How to Live With Membranous Nephropathy: Skin Care, Diet, Medicine Care

Membranous Nephropathy usually develops gradually and shows no obvious symptoms, so many people even live with it for years without any recognition. How to live well with membranous nephropathy? With your permission, I am glad to give some suggestions on skin care, diet care and medicine care.

Skin care

Membranous nephropathy can easily cause dry, fragile skin or become infected. I suggest to take care of your children’s skin by:

- Avoiding hot water to bathe

- Check for areas that are red, warm to the touch, or bleeding.

- Use baking soda or cornstarch powders on areas of your skin that become irritated.

- Avoid chemicals that may irritate the skin, such as rubbing alcohol, soaps, detergents, or solvents.

- Avoid tight-fitting clothes and shoes.


The best way for you to try to control your child's swelling is to limit the amount of salt she eats and drinks. Even normal amounts of salt will cause the body to retain fluid. A dietitian will work with you to help plan a low-salt diet for your child and explain how to reduce salt in the diet. My suggestions for reducing salt intake include: choose fresh or frozen vegetables and fruits, choose foods marked “low-salt” or “low-sodium”; flavor your foods with herbs and spices such as basil, tarragon, or mint, or use salt-free sauces or lemon juice.
