1. Limit the intake of salt
As we all know, many kidney disease patients should limit the intake of salt, so, why do we need to do so? Because too much salt will harden blood vessels, it is not beneficial to control high blood pressure. So, avoiding too much salt is necessary. Common foods that are rich in salt including: pickles, processed foods, can foods and so on.

In order to decrease the burden of failed kidneys, keeping away from a lot of fat and protein is also vital. Since in most conditions, membranous nephropathy patients will experience proteinuria, too much intake of protein will aggravate the process of proteinuria.
However, some high-quality protein is also OK, for example, egg white, milk, lean meat, fish, etc. Supplying moderate high-quality protein can satisfy the need of the body and maintain the normal operation of renal function.
