Lifestyle and home remedies

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Changes to your diet may help you cope with nephrotic syndrome. Your doctor may refer you to a dietitian to discuss how what you eat can help you cope with the complications of nephrotic syndrome. A dietitian may recommend that you:

  • Choose lean sources of protein
  • Reduce the amount of fat and cholesterol in your diet to help control your blood cholesterol levels
  • Eat a low-salt diet to help control the swelling (edema) you experience
