Ketosteril Can Provide Essential Protein and Won’t Put Extra Stress on the Kidneys

Ketosteril Can Provide Essential Protein and Won’t Put Extra Stress on the KidneysPeople are omnivorous animals, living not only to plants for food, but also to appropriate intake of meat. But when we have albuminuria and heavy edema, the doctor may emphasize again and again that protein intake should be controlled. Especially for patients with renal insufficiency, protein intake should be controlled under 0.6g/kg per day.

When you have a very low protein intake, it may not satisfy the need of body and cause malnutrition easily. Severe malnutrition is now considered as an independent risk factor for chronic renal failure, which is directly correlated with morbidity and mortality.

But with a high protein intake, it will put extra stress on kidneys, which is not beneficial for the kideny function protection.

To resolve this contradiction, doctors recommend a low-protein diet with Ketosteril. Generally, this diet plan starts with patients with stage 3 or 4 chronic kidney disease, but in recent years, more and more experts have suggested that the early stages of chronic kidney disease, namely stage 1 or 2, require early initiation of a low-protein diet with Ketosteril. Especially for the early stage kidney patients with proteinuria as the main characteristics, low protein diet combined with ketosteril can effectively protect the renal function of patients, but also effectively improve the patient's hyperlipidemia and the protein nutrition.

What is ketosteril? Its main function is to convert nitrogen into protein. This has two advantages, one is to ensure the body's need for protein, and the other is to alleviate the rise of urea nitrogen to some extent. That is to say, the drug could help kidney patients on low-protein diets get enough protein and reduce metabolic wastes. What's more, the synthetic protein doesn't burden the kidneys, so it's a boon for people with kidney disease.

However, it is important to pay attention to the following problems:

First, ketosteril must be combined with a low amount of high-quality protein diet. If you do not pay attention to protein intake, you can not get expected effect. What is worse, it may cause hypercalcemia and amino acid metabolism disorder.

Second, during the medication, protein intake must be calculated based on the patient's condition and physical condition, and it is not allowed to blindly control or avoid protein intake.

Three, it is appropriate to take it during meals so that it is fully absorbed and converted into the corresponding amino acids.

Fourth, blood calcium levels should be monitored regularly and adequate calorie intake should be ensured.

All in all, you should follow the doctor’s advice to take medicine.

In addition, western medicine uses hormones to suppress inflammation to eliminate urinary protein. Traditional Chinese medicine focuses on improving human immunity and using human immunity to eliminate inflammation and prevent protein leakage. The two treatment concept is different, but kidney patients can find their own treatment methods from various ways.
