What Is The Diet For Chronic GlomerulonephritisGlomerulonephritis is a kind of kidney disease which is marked by inflammation of the glomeruli in your kidneys. When the glomeruli are inflamed, they cannot remove wastes and fluid out of the body properly and timely. To control the amount of wastes in your blood, you need to follow a strict diet plan. What is the proper diet for chronic glomerulonephritis patients? Read on to find the answer.

1. Patients with chronic glomerulonephritis should eat foods with high quality low protein, low phosphorus and high vitamin, and increase sugar intake to ensure enough heat and reduce the protein breakdown. If patients have edema or high blood pressure, they should also limit the intake of sodium or salt.

2. Limit salt and sodium intake: the sodium intake should be less than 3g/d; if patients with serious edema, the sodium intake should be less than 2g/d; the water intake can be more 500ml than total urine output in previous day.

3. Protein intake

If you have chronic glomerulonephritis, your kidneys cannot remove urea from the blood properly. Urea in the blood will put more burden on your kidneys, which will worsen your condition. In this condition, if you still consume too protein, it will lead to urea accumulation in your body. However, protein is an essential nutrients in your body, and controlling protein intake can also lower phosphorus intake, so the protein should be high quality protein. What is more, the daily protein intake is 0.6g/kg of your body weight, high of them should be high quality protein such as fish, eggs, lean meat, milk and so on.

4. Limit potassium intake

When your kidneys are injured, they fail to filter excess amounts of potassium from the blood. If the level of potassium goes too high, it can lead to irregular heartbeat and even heart attack. In order to prevent potassium from building up in your blood, you should avoid potassium-rich foods such as bananas, sweet potatoes, oranges, spinach, tomatoes, nuts, legumes and dairy products.

5. Fluid

The damaged kidneys cannot remove excess fluid from the body. As a result, fluid can accumulate in your body tissues, leading to swelling. The amount of fluid you are allowed to consume depends on your level of kidney function.

What is more, daily energy intake is 30-35kcal/kg. And you should replenish all kinds of vitamin and microelement such as vitamin A,B,C,D,E and microelement Ca, Zn,Fe.
