    2. Nutritional therapy

    Correct energy intake and balance of proteins will be used in synthesis processes and not as a source of calories. A total of 35kcal/kg body weight per day is recommended. The first is not to consume more than 1g of protein/kg body weight per day as a greater amount could increase the degree of proteinuria and cause a negative nitrogen balance. Patients can consume lean cuts of meat, fish and poultry. The second is that water intake is not greater than the level of diuresis. Also salt must be controlled as this contributes to water retention. It is advisable to restrict sodium intake to 1 or 2g/day. This means salt can not be used in cooking and salty foods should also be avoided. High sodium foods include seasoning blends like garlic salt, Adobo, season salt, canned soups, canned vegetables containing salt, luncheon meats such as turkey, ham, salami, prepared foods, fast foods, soy sauce, salad dressings.

    3. Medication

    The medication for edema is diuretic drugs especially loop diuretics such as furosemide. In severe cases of edema or in patients with one of a number of severe infections, the diuretics can be administered intravenously.

    More importantly, the radical treatment for edema in Nephrotic Syndrome is a systematic Chinese medicine treatment including Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Enema Therapy, etc. Our Chinese medicine treatments can repair injured tiny filtering blood vessels in kidneys and improve renal function.
