Diet for Patients with “Nephritis”


My husband was detected yesterday of having kidney problem. Not acute but can lead to chronic nephritis if he won’t follow the doctor’s advises. Nephritis refers to inflammation of one or both kidneys. It can be caused by infection.



The doctor advised my husband not to eat sea foods, beans in any form, internal organs, foods rich in oxalic acids like spinach, coffee, cocoa, chocolates. All salts should be eliminated from his meal including other condiments like soy sauce, fish sauce, seasonings, etc. The safest treatment for acute nephritis is fasting. I did a research yesterday and found this at http://www.diethealthclub.com. Just want to share this to those with kidney ailment like my husband.

  1. ang hirap naman mag diet ano tita? pero kelangan ganyan ang gawin siguro para magamot ang sakit..

    oi, ok ang research mo ha!
    natuwa naman ako sayo kase sabi mo sa akin wala kang alam sa blogging, ayan at dalawa na ang site mo…bongga di ba? sige enjoy ka lang at alam kong maaadik ka rin dito sa blog…

  2. ay naku sinabi mo pa. nakakaadik talaga! eto nga at nakasalang sa dryer mga nilabhan ko. kanina ko pa narinig tumigil sa pag-ikot pero di ko maisampay-sampay kase di ako makatayo dito…lol!

    wala talaga akong alam sa blogging noon. kaya lang siguro dahil araw-araw akong nandito kaya medyo natuto. actually, until now e nangangapa pa rin ako.

    yup, mahirap ang diet pero kailangang gawin. kahapon ulam namin ampalaya w/ tofu na ginisa pero walang pampaalat. idinaan ko na lang sa dami ng sibuyas at kamatis. ngayon naman sinigang na bangus na wala ring alat puro asim lang…hahaha!

    idinadaan ko na lang sa tawa. ok na rin yon para pati ako e ma-diet na rin.

  3. Ay, ang hirap naman ng diet na yan, pano pa ba ako gaganahan kumain kung walang alat at linamnam, wahhhh!
    Congratz for having 2 blogsites. Kakaadik talaga ang blogging, kaya nga malabo na mata ko eh..kakaharap sa monitor.

  4. Mabuti habang maaga pa eh nalaman nyo agad, ako eh eh late na kaya nagdaan ako sa dialysis, tapos kidney transplant. Sana i follow ng asawa mo yung advice ng doctor niya…mahirap ang may problema sa kidney, saka magastos pa.

    salamat nga pala sa dalaw mo sa blog ko 🙂

  5. oo, Liz, sinabi mo pa. ang hirap palang kumain ng walang lasa pero kapag pala gutom ka e pwede na rin. hehehe.

    ako rin mukhang kailangan ko na ring pumunta sa optha kase madalas nagluluha eyes ko at minsan mahapdi.

  6. mahirap naman yata yung totally walang alat baka Hyponatrimia naman ang bagsak.
    Ako din pinaplano ko rin magpa check up sa mata kasi mahapdi at nagluluha na rin ang mata ko

  7. 2 months lang naman ung walang alat nanay belen, habang nagpapagaling sya. after noon siguro pwede na.

    dahil sa kaka-computer natin kaya nagkakaproblema tayo sa mata. ako kase na-addict na yata.

  8. hi ms butterfly.. maybe you can advise me about my present ailment. I have a high protein result in my recent urine lab test. I undergone 24 hour urine collection and still positive with high protein in my urine. The doctor suspected me of glomerulosnephritis, my blood pressure is high 150/90 and my cholesterol too is high. The doctor gave me imidapril for my bp and simvastatin for my cholesterol. Though i dont want to take these meds since these will affect my other internal organs.
    Do you know of someone who have this kind of ailment? gumaling ba sya? mahirap ba i treat? is there other option a herbal meds for cholesterol and hypertension?
    Thanks so much and Im glad i have found your blog. For anyone who can read please in need your advise. The doctor also told me that one of the option is to undergo kidney biopsy pero natatakot ako mag risk. again thank you and nice to hear from you.
