Add Albumin With Cork Fish?
Good afternoon. I want to ask for people with nephrotic syndrome. My mother lacks albumin. besides infusion by means of albumin infusion, is it permissible and can by consuming cork fish can add albumin? Thank you 🙏
Hello Budi, thank you for asking.
In people with kidney disorders, including nephrotic syndrome, there is protein leakage. Under normal conditions, renal filtration is not possible to be passed by protein molecules, because of the large size of the protein. In kidney disorders, the kidney filtration system is damaged. This results in protein molecules passing through kidney filtration. As a result, much protein is wasted in the urine. Protein levels in blood plasma become low. Low levels of protein cause edema (swelling) throughout the body.
Protein consumption for people with kidney disorders, must be monitored very closely. There are indeed supplements on the market made from cork fish extract, which is said to contain a percentage of protein. The problem is, proteins consist of many kinds. Can not be ascertained really, what kind of protein that is contained in supplements or real cork fish. In addition, how much protein is absorbed by the body is not precisely measured. With the administration of albumin infusion, the percentage and type of protein that enters, can be controlled properly. Therefore, before starting to consume certain types of protein or protein supplements, you should discuss with your doctor who treats your mother. The doctor will list the types of protein that can be consumed and how large the levels are.
Thus my brief explanation. Hope this helps you. Regards.
