Dietary Management for Purpura Nephritis
When diagnosed with Purpura Nephritis, patients need to make some changes on diet. And in this article, we will talk about this issue in detail, read on and you can find a satisfied answer.
The intake of protein foods
In normal condition, healthy kidneys can help remove waste products, toxins and extra fluid out of the blood. For people with this disorder, too much intake of protein will increase the burden of kidneys. Therefore, the quantity should be limited. However, they can eat some high-quality protein foods, such as, fish, milk, lean meat, egg white, etc.
Restriction on salt is very important to relive symptoms like edema, high blood pressure. Therefore, foods that are rich in salt like processed products, canned foods, etc should be avoided.
Ingestion of potassium and phosphorus
Due to loss of kidney function, the kidneys will fail to maintain the balance of potassium and phosphorus. Therefore, high-potassium level or high-phosphorus level may occur.
Research shows that high-potassium level may cause irregular heartbeat, heart failure or other life-threatening diseases. So, foods loaded in potassium should be limited, such as banana, orange, chocolate, broccoli, mushroom and so on.
High-phosphorus foods may lead to some bone disorders. Thereby, foods loaded in phosphorus including cola drinks, ice cream, walnut, peanut, red bean, etc should be restricted.
