Can Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Eat Egg

Can Nephrotic Syndrome Patients Eat EggCan children or adults with Nephrotic Syndrome eat eggs? Nephrotic Syndrome is one glomerular disease that can occur at any age, especially in children. A right diet plan can help reduce the burden on kidneys and protect kidneys. Can egg be added into their meal plan?

If you or your child has Nephrotic Syndrome, you must know swelling and proteinuria are two typical symptoms of this kidney disease. Protein is one essential nutrition for our body, while heavy proteinuria means a large amount of protein leaks from the blood. If uncontrolled, it may worsen patients’ swelling and cause malnutrition easily. Therefore, Nephrotic Syndrome patients should take in high-quality protein to meet the body’s need, but the total amount should be controlled.

Egg white, one part of the egg, is just one super source of high-quality protein. It is reported that 100g of egg contains about 12.8g of protein, which has 8 essential amino acids. For human body, the absorption rate of egg protein can be as high as 98%. That is to say, fewer waste products are produced and eliminated by kidneys.

However, egg yolk may not be a good choice for Nephrotic Syndrome, because it can cause high cholesterol and blood problems. From this perspective, Nephrotic Syndrome patients are recommended to eat egg white rather than egg yolk.

Of course, this doesn’t mean Nephrotic Syndrome patients can eat eggs without limitation. Generally speaking, 0.8~1.0g/kg high-quality protein is suggested for these patients one daily. In view of this, they can get enough protein intake from one egg white, 50g of lean meat and half a cup of milk.
