Since kidney function is so intimately involved in the body’s electrolyte balance, when the kidneys are not able to fully do their job, foods containing electrolytes must be reduced. If people with Nephrotic Syndrome in children are suffering the loss of kidney function, high-phosphorus foods like nuts, chocolate, cocoa, carbonated vegetables and dairy products, etc should be reduced.

If the serum phosphorus levels exceed 5.5 mg/dL, doctor may recommend that people stay away from cocoa and other high-phosphorus foods. However, if the phosphorus levels are normal, there is no need to avoid chocolate and cocoa.

Eating a low-phosphorus diet will not cure Nephrotic Syndrome in children.
