Answer

An adequate dietary protein intake, in accordance with the recommended daily allowance (RDA) is necessary. No evidence suggests that hepatic albumin synthesis is elevated with protein intake that is higher than the RDA.

Dietary sodium restriction helps forestall the progression of edema and also is prudent in the management of hypertension.

Mobilization, rather than bed rest, is indicated to avoid thromboembolic complications.
