When to Restrict Protein with Nephrotic Syndrome

When to Restrict Protein with Nephrotic SyndromeNephrotic Syndrome is one kidney disorder that occurs more commonly in children and young people. Because the breakdown of protein is mainly discharged out via kidneys, nearly all kidney patients are required to limit the protein intake. For Nephrotic Syndrome patients, when to restrict protein intake?

Generally speaking, if the 24-hour protein in urine is more than 0.15 g/24h, it means patients have proteinuria, while it indicates heavy proteinuria if the figure is higher than 3.5g/24h. Why Nephrotic Syndrome patients have obvious proteinuria?

This is because Nephrotic Syndrome is attributed to glomerular damage. When glomerular filtration barrier is damaged, protein leaks from the blood into urine easily, forming proteinuria.

According to characteristics of Nephrotic Syndrome, two conditions require patients to limit their protein intake immediately.

One condition is proteinuria. If Nephrotic Syndrome patients find foam in urine, they should control the amount of protein to take in. The clinic research has proven that dietary protein restriction has been linked with declined proteinuria, although it can’t achieve complete remission.

The other condition is kidney damage. When kidneys are damaged, extra protein intake can cause glomerular high filtration that will worsen patients’ proteinuria and prompt the progress of kidney disease. From this point, Nephrotic Syndrome patients with kidney damage should limit their protein intake.
