Is Your Henoch-Schönlein Purpura Nephritis (HSPN) Diet Healthy

2012-09-18 08:40  Purpura Nephritis DietA healthy diet can help Henoch-Schönlein Purpura Nephritis (HSPN) patients control the condition well to some extent. It can not only slow the progression of the disease, also can make the kidneys work well. What should patients notice about their diets?
Salt intake
If Henoch-Schönlein Purpura Nephritis (HSPN) patients have no swelling or high blood pressure, then they don’t need to limit the salt intake. They can eat 10g per day just like the normal people. Limit the salt intake has a relationship with the patients with swelling and high blood pressure, that is because the salt can aggravate the retention of water and sodium. The amount of salt should be controlled into 2-3g, if it is necessary for patients to limit salt intake.
Water intake
If Henoch-Schönlein Purpura Nephritis (HSPN) patients have no swelling and oliguria, then limiting water intake is not necessary. Patients with swelling master the water intake according to the urine volume and the degree of swelling. In general, if the swelling is obvious, the amount of water intake should be controlled into 500-800ml/d.
Protein intake
Henoch-Schönlein Purpura Nephritis (HSPN) patients can neither control the protein intake strictly nor take too much protein. That is because low plasma protein makes the immunity declines and patients are easy to get infections, swelling comes and goes. While high-protein diets can cause hyperfiltration of glomeruli and increase the burden on kidneys.
Though important healthy diets are, they are the adjuvant therapy. Henoch-Schönlein Purpura Nephritis (HSPN) needs to be treated by the efficient treatments.
