The dr may have recommended that you eat more protein because you are at present losing a lot of protein through the kidneys. However it is important that you eat low-fat, lean proteins to avoid ingesting too much saturated fat. I would recommend that you consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), who will assess which phase of the nephrotic syndrome you are in at the moment and calculate how much protein and what type you require.
