    2014-08-25 03:26| Font Size A A A

    What Diet Principles Should Be Obeyed By Lupus PatientsWhat can I eat? Which kind of food is beneficial for me? Both of thema are the commonly asked question by Lupus Nephritis patients. Here we will explain the issues about “what diet principle should be obeyed by this type of kidney disease?

    Before talking about the proper diet for patients, we should have a look at the overview of Lupus Nephritis. It is caused by systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). It is a kind of autoimmune disease which is characterized by the glomerular damage. The most obvious symptoms are proteinuria and swelling. And it is also accompanied with high blood pressure, blood in urine, fatigue, anemia and so on. Both of them are mainly due to the decreased renal function and kidney damage. To well control these symptoms and protect remaining renal function, we should design a proper diet plan. Here are several tips that you need to pay more attention.

    Low-protein diet

    Most of patients with lupus nephritis are suggested to have a low-protein diet. Because eating too much protein will further increase proteinuria. And high-protein will break down to many waste protein, like urea nitrogen and it will increase the kidneys workload and cause further kidney damage. Low-protein diet can help patients control the illness condition and protect renal function. If necessary, you also can consume high-quality protein foods, such as egg white, fish, lean meat and milk and so on.

    Low-sodium diet

    High sodium diet will aggravate high blood pressure or hypertension and swelling. Because overmuch sodium will lead to water-sodium retention and increase edema. On the contrary, low-sodium diet is very beneficial for controlling these two symptoms for lupus nephritis patients.


    Due to kidney damage, the kidney fails to regulate and balance the electrolyte. And extra phosphorus can not be discharged out. When more and more phosphorus accumulate in your blood, it will worsen the illness condition and induce more serious condition like low calcium, hyperphosphatemia, skin problems and so on. In severe condition, you should avoid intake of this substance.

    In addition, in order to satisfy your body needs, you are required to ingest vitamins, like vitamin C, vitamin B and so on.
