Should I Drink A Lot of Water or Less Water with FSGS

Should I Drink A Lot of Water or Less Water with FSGSAs its name implies, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) means some of your glomeruli become sclerosis. Glomeruli are the filters which is responsible for removing waste from the blood. With FSGS, you may have edema, proteinuria, hypoproteinemia and hyperlipemia. In order to control the state of illness, you should pay attention to diet. Water is an important component of diet. Should I drink a lot of water or less water with FSGS? I think many patients want to know the answer. In this article, let’s a general look.

You should drink less water with FSGS.

If you have severe edema, you should drink less water, just to satisfy thirst. Because your damaged kidneys can not retain the protein in the body. Protein leakage can lead to water retention in the body. Drinking a lot of water can worsen water retention. How much water you should drink depends on your urine output.

You can drink water as much as you like with FSGS.

When your FSGS is in remission, you can drink as much as you like, because your kidneys can remove the excess water from your body.

How to get FSGS in remission?

FSGS should be treated as early as possible to prevent further damage to the glomeruli. Once the glomeruli become sclerosis, no treatment can bring them back to life. What we should do is to protect the remaining kidney tissues.

Most commonly, patients are treated with drugs called steroids and with blood pressure medicines. Some patients respond well to these medicine, while some other patients do not respond to routine therapies. If you would like to reduce the side effects of the routine therapies or want to choose other natural therapies, you can try our treatment.

Our treatment plan mainly includes Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture and medicated soup. The herbs in these therapies vary from patient to patient. But their function is almost the same. They can draw out toxins from blood, dilate blood vessels, block blood clotting and lower cholesterol level to improve blood circulation. They can also inhibit kidney inflammation and stop kidney fibrosis to stop the progression to kidney failure. With the improvement of kidney function, you can enjoy whatever you like.

From the above, we can see that how much water should a FSGS patient drink depends on their medical condition. If you need our help, please contact us.
