Suggest a diet for diabetic nephropathy.

Q: Suggest a diet for diabetic nephropathy.

A:It is important to maintain a low-sodium diet in diabetic nephropathy. Many diabetics with renal disease are salt sensitive, and minimising salt intake can help in reaching blood pressure goals, and reduction in proteinuria. Use a low-sodium diet of equal or less than 2.3 grams (5.8 grams of NaCl or common salt ) or 100 mEq daily in patients with diabetes and either hypertension or any degree of proteinuria.
