3 Key Points of Nursing Care for Nephrotic Syndrome Patients

3 Key Points of Nursing Care for Nephrotic Syndrome PatientsNephrotic Syndrome often gets relapse. In order to reduce the sufferings, I have sorted out the daily nursing care knowledge of Nephrotic Syndrome, including diet, daily living and clinical nursing. Hope the 3 points can help you.

1. Diet

-A low-salt diet should be maintained during high-dose hormone treatment or with edema.

-Protein intake should meet the needs of the body and urine loss.

-Water intake should be restricted appropriately if patients have severe edema or less urine.

-People who already have hyperlipidemia and hypoproteinemia should limit their cholesterol and saturated fat intake.

-To eat more fresh fruits and vegetables and take vitamin supplements, especially vitamin C and B.

-To increase dietary fiber intake to reduce the incidence of acidosis.

2. Daily living

-To maintain personal hygiene and exercise appropriately without fatigue.

-To develop good living habits and get enough sleep.

-To keep the air fresh and reduce personnel exchanges in the patient room.

-To keep a happy mood and avoid the relapse of the disease and fluctuation of blood pressure caused by emotional factors.

3. Clinical nursing

-Patients with significant edema and a large amount of proteinuria should be bed-ridden more.

-Those with severe edema should change their positions frequently.

-Those with eyelid or facial swelling should have a higher pillow.

-Those with pleural effusion should be half-lying.

-Those with scrotal edema had better lift the scrotum with bandage.

-In the case of renal insufficiency, health care should be strengthened in the case of oral ulcers caused by retention of metabolites such as urea nitrogen in the body. For example, gargle with saline.

No matter what kind of kidney disease, it is not easy to cure, and needs the people around to take good care of, although the process will be a little hard, but will be good. For more information on Nephrotic Syndrome, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
