2014-08-18 16:57

What foods should be avoided if I have Diabetic Nephropathy? A patient asked us this question online. As a kidney doctor, we very understand the patient’s mood. Thus, we write this article to help the people that have the same experience. If you are one of them, we hope you can read the following article with patient. Any questions, you are welcome to send an email to, and we will reply you soon.

1. Sweetmeat

It seems like common sense that the blood sugar level is higher than normal for the patients with Diabetes, as well as Diabetic Nephropathy. That is too say, the patients need to limit the sweetmeat intake strictly, such as white sugar, brown sugar, honey, chocolate, dextrose, fruit drops, preserved fruit, high carbohydrate foods and so on. While, if your blood sugar is low, you can eat them properly.

2. Salty food

Do you know that much salt intake can aggravate the burden of kidneys and lead to more serious kidney damage? Besides, it also can contribute to high blood pressure and edema. While salty food is rich in salt, so in order to protect kidneys, you should avoid salty food.

3. High potassium food

For the patients, you are easy to suffer from hyperkalemia due to the damaged kidneys, so you had better reduce the potassium intake, and the high potassium foods include bananas, oranges, potatoes, bitter gourd, spinach, tremella and so on.

4. High protein diet

As we all know, protein is so important to help us rebuild and repair the damaged tissues. While, high protein diet can increase the burden of kidneys, but in order to meet your needs, you should properly eat some foods rich in high quality, such as white egg, fish and lean meat.

What foods should be avoided for the patients with Diabetic Nephropathy? Through the above introduction, you should have the answer. Except diet, you also need to receive effective treatments, because diet just can slow the progress of disease.
