Existence of sodium in blood needs water, and this explains why we feel thirsty after eating pickled foods. Due to the increase of sodium level, large amounts of water accumulate in the blood, which will increase impact on blood vessel wall and cause further increase of blood pressure.

Low-protein diet

When kidneys fail to preserve protein in the body, the more protein we eat, the more protein leak into urine. Therefore, for Hypertensive Nephropathy patients who are detected with excess protein in urine, high-protein diet will worsen proteinuria and                                                                                                      accelerate illness condition. However, for patients who have started dialysis, they need to eat much more protein to replenish the one lost during dialysis.
