    Is Papaya A Good Diet for Nephrotic SyndromeIs papaya a good diet for Nephrotic Syndrome patient or not? And also what is the good diet? Many patients consult us about kidney diet. Let’s read through the article and find the answer.

    Papaya is a nutritious food and it helps nephrotic syndrome patients from the following aspects:

    1. High in vitamin

    Papaya is a great source of dietary fiber. The fiber obtained from the fruit helps to increase bowel movement. Improved bowel movements help ease the passage of stool, thereby reducing the effects of constipation which is a common complication from kidney disease.

    2. Improve your immunity

    Papaya consumption is also to be linked to improvement in the immunity system of the body. The antioxidants present in papaya play an important role in improving the immunity system. This can relieve nephrotic syndrome to some extent.

    3. Rich in vitamins and minerals

    This fruit is rich in vitamin A and minerals like phosphorus, iron, potassium, copper, manganese, calcium and magnesium. This can provide nutrients for repairing injured kidney tissues. However, do not eat too much if your potassium is high.

    Apart from the above benefits, papaya also helps prevent infections, improve heart health, reduce inflammation and aid digestive health.

    Besides, diet tips for nephrotic syndrome include:

    Sodium intake in diet should be low so as to prevent fluid accumulation and edema. Salty foods should be avoided including salted pickles, curry powder, salted or canned meat, salted cashew nuts, walnuts and peanuts.

    Fat intake should also be low as the cholesterol and triglyceride levels tend to be high in patients with Nephrotic syndrome.

    High protein intake must be avoided to prevent any tubular damage to the kidneys cauesd by filtering of the excess proteins.

    Foods can be taken by Nephrotic Syndrome including:

    Cow’s milk, skimmed milk
