Are There Any Foods to Help Reverse FSGS

Are There Any Foods to Help Reverse FSGSDiet provides the body with essential nutrients, but at the same time it produces a lot of metabolic waste. If you choose the improper diet, too much waste will be produced, which may increase the workload of kidneys. If you choose a balanced diet, the rich nutrients can help your body fight against the disease. Nowadays more and more people begin to realize the important role the diet plays in slowing down the progression to kidney failure. Are there any foods to help reverse FSGS? Now let’s have a quick look.

Food to help you reduce proteinuria

Proteinuria is a common symptom of FSGS. Diet can help control proteinuria to certain extent. With proteinuria, you should limit the intake of protein. But it does not mean you should avoid protein, because your body needs protein to function. There are usually two kinds of protein, namely animal protein and plant protein. Relatively speaking, animal protein is high quality protein, which means the amino acids in them can mostly be absorbed. Egg white, lean meat, poultry without skin are all good sources.

Food to help you relieve edema

Edema is also a common symptom of FSGS. To relieve edema, you should reduce the intake of fluid. Besides, you should restrict the intake of sodium, because it can retain water in the body, worsening edema. Table salt, pickles and seasoning are rich in sodium, so pay attention to their intake.

Food to help you boost immune system

A strong immune system can protect you from various disease. It is widely recognized vitamin C is an immune system booster. Fresh vegetables and fruits are all high in vitamins.

Besides, according to the blood test, you should supplement the elements that body loses, such as iron and calcium. Diet can help you a lot. If you have high content of certain elements such as potassium, you can also adjust diet to reduce its intake.
