    Actually, to keep a well planed diet, they should first pay attention to their protein intake, because high protein intake will be bad for lupus patients and lupus nephritis patients.

    It is well known that protein is an important part of any diet, if you happen to be a person with kidney damage, too much protein can be a problem. Because too much protein will produce more wastes and toxins in the body, like urea, which can increase the damaged kidneys’ workload. Therefore, a low-protein diet is necessary to decrease kidney’s burden. However, in order to prevent malnutrition and improve immune system, it is also important to take enough protein to supply energy. Therefore, high-quality protein can be recommended to you, like fish, egg white, milk and lean meant, etc.

    How much protein can patients eat daily?

    The amount of protein intake for lupus nephritis patients should depend on their illness condition, and the exact protein intake is usually based on the kidney condition. For example, if lupus nephritis patients have a mildly reduced kidney function, they can take 0.6-0.8 g of protein/ kg body weight. And if their kidney function is reduced severely and still don’t have dialysis, they can take 0.2-0.4 g of protein/ kg body weight. However, if patients have dialysis, they need to take more protein, which is about 1.2g of protein/kg body weight.
