Professors’ introduction: pay attention to following aspects in dietary therapy for lupus nephritis.
1、The intake of protein for chronic renal insufficiency patient need limit the intake of protein to decrease nitrogen retention in the blood and release the burden of kidney, delay the process of chronic renal failure. As usual, the intake of protein is 0.4-0.6g each day, and choosing fine protein, like egg, milk, lean etc such animals protein, including high essential amino-acid and producing less nitrogen substance when it decomposed. Vegetable protein like soy product, corn, flour and rice including less essential amino-acid, more non-essential amino acid, lower biologic potency, so called “low-quality protein”, these kind of food should be limited it. There are some requirements for protein to the patient with nephrotic syndrome, you neither strict control the intake of protein, nor stress high protein food, because plasma proteins are always lowing that would made your resistance decrease, be easy to infect, the edema will return， aggravate your condition, and high protein food may cause high of glomerular filtration, for in a long time accelerate the process of glomerulosclerosis. Now the everyday intake of protein is 1g/kg body weight, and better choice is fine protein for renal syndrome patients with normal renal function.
2、The intake of salt If kidney disease patients have no edema or high blood pressure, you won’t limit the intake of salt, and you can take salt 10g as normal people, limiting the intake of salt mainly direct at edema and high blood pressure patients, if you do not limit salt may aggravate water-sodium retention, made edema difficult to resolve, and caused blood pressure increasing. As usual, everyday control the intake of salt in 2-3g, less urine, the people with high serum potassium should limit the intake of sylvite.
3、The intake of water kidney disease patients if have not the condition of oliguria don’t need to the intake of water, edema patients should master the water intake according to the urine volume and the degree of swelling, generally speaking, have clearly edema, besides eating, it is suitable that you’d better control the water in 500-800ml in a day.
