What Kind of Diet Can FSGS Patients Have?

Diet of FSGSFSGS is a kind of kidney disease, which belongs to stage 3 of IgA Nephropathy. Diet plays a significant role in our normal life and an indispensable part of our daily life, especially for the patients, we need to carefully choose for eating. So what kind of diet can FSGS patients have?

Generally speaking, hypertension is one of the obvious signs of FSGS patients. For the reason, patients need to take some right food which helps prevent the blood pressure rising. Such as, fresh green vegetable, sea-tangle, black rice, black fungus etc. Maintaining a proper diet is a very important step in fighting FSGS. Managing a right diet plan contributes to controlling the progress and many symptoms.

Control the intake of energy; patients are advocated to complex carbohydrates, such as amylum starch, corn etc, so as to avoid the increase of blood fat.

If you are suffering from severe edema or hypoproteinemia, you should take enough rest. Take high quality protein with the stand of 1g/KG/Day. You need enough heat (30~35 kilocalorie), but you are not advised to take high protein diet. High protein is not equal to high quality protein. In edema, patients should take low-salt (3~6g/d) diet instead of salt-free diet. You can take less high saturated acid food (animal fat) and take more low saturated food (plant oil) or high soluble fiber such as vegetables, oat and rice bran. As FSGS patients usually take long time of hormone medicines, they also can supplement some calcium medicine, such as calcium tablet.
