Is Wheatgrass Juice Good for FSGS Patients

Is Wheatgrass Juice Good for FSGS PatientsBecause of its rich nutrient values, wheatgrass becomes more and more popular in the world. Is wheatgrass juice good for FSGS patients who have many diet restrictions? The answer is that FSGS patients can drink wheatgrass juice, but there are some precautions.

Health benefits of wheatgrass juice for FSGS patients

1. Wheatgrass has a very high content of chlorophyll, which makes wheatgrass a superfood.

-For FSGS patients, their damaged kidneys can not secrete enough erythropoietin to form hemoglobin, leading to anemia. Chlorophyll is similar to the molecule structures of hemoglobin, which can help you relieve anemia.

3. Boot immune system

The reason why people have diseases is that their immune system is low. Besides, FSGS patients often take immunosuppressants which can further lower their immune system. Drinking wheatgrass juice frequently can build your immune system, because it is packed with many kinds of antioxidants, such as vitamin A, C, and E.

Wheatgrass can also suppress appetite to prevent overeat. It can also improve digestion, reduce fatigue and treat arthritis.

Whether you can drink wheatgrass or not with FSGS and how much wheatgrass juice you can drink depends on your medical condition. Before you add it into the diet, it is better for you to consult the doctor.
