Nephrotic Syndrome: Eating a Low-Fat Diet
Nephrotic syndrome causes the buildup of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood (hyperlipidemia), which can damage the heart. Eating a heart-healthy diet may help reduce the amount of fat in your blood.
Remember that fat-free or low-fat foods are not always low in calories. Always read the food label to check the amount of calories in each serving size.
