Low Saturated Fats and Cholesterol
Avoid foods that are high in saturated fats and cholesterol—like hydrogenated fats, trans fats, and animal fats. Instead, stick to healthy fats in foods like olive, soybean, flaxseed, primrose, and black currant seed oil. Also, try adding the following foods (in moderation) to your diet. They may help lower cholesterol levels in your body:
- Cold-water fish
- Dried beans
Making these diet choices may help you manage your overall health.
And remember, it takes more than a healthy diet to manage proteinuria in nephrotic syndrome. Talk with your doctor about finding a treatment option that’s right for you.
