Can I Eat Tomato If My Kidney Leaks Protein

Can I Eat Tomato If My Kidney Leaks ProteinWhen kidney filtering structure is damaged, protein will leak from kidneys into urine. In this case, right foods can help manage protein leakage and complications caused by proteinuria. Tomato is one common vegetable. Can patients eat tomato if their kidneys leak protein?

Tomato contains rich carotene, vitamin C, vitamin B, protein, sugar, fiber, malic acid, citric acid, potassium, iron, Zinc, and so on. All of these nutrients determine its benefits on many aspects.

For patients with proteinuria, they should always pay attention to several tips in their diet plan. They are:

1. Controlling the intake of plant protein. This is because these protein sources are always abundant in purine that can tax kidneys. Thereby, people whose kidneys are leaking protein had better pay highly attention to their plant protein intake.

2. Supplementing calcium, magnesium and zinc. Along with protein leakage, calcium, magnesium and zinc may also be lost through urine, so patients should eat more fresh vegetables and fruits which contain these minerals.

3. Developing different levels of protein diet. If protein leakage is accompanied by renal insufficiency, protein intake can be as same as that of general population. If not, they should increase their protein intake moderately. Besides, they are suggested to choose high-quality protein such as egg, white, fish and lean meat.

According to these requirements of diet for patients with proteinuria, tomato is one good source of calcium, zinc and magnesium for these patients, but the total amount intake of tomato should be limited. Consult the doctor from Kidney Service China to determine how many you can eat one time.
