Is Eating Guava Good for FSGS Patients

Is Eating Guava Good for FSGS PatientsGuava is a kind of fruit with rich nutrition value, such as various vitamins, dietary fiber, calcium, copper, folate, potassium, iron, manganese, etc. Is eating guava good for FSGS patients?

Boost immunity

Because of the vitamins in guava, especially vitamin C makes guava a good choice to increase immune system function so as to protect against diseases like cold, flu and infection, which may add insult to the injury.

Reduce blood pressure

High blood pressure is a common complication of kidney disease. Potassium can counteract the effect of sodium to maintain fluid level and reduce blood pressure. But if your blood potassium level is beyond the normal level, you had better control the intake of guava.

Increase blood production

The damaged kidneys affect the production of red blood cells, causing anemia. The rich vitamin C in guava increases body capacity to absorb iron, which helps improve anemia. Besides, other vitamins in guava like vitamin E, K, niacin, folate and minerals like copper, manganesse and magnesium, which are important for blood formation.

Good for diabetes

If your FSGS is caused by diabetes, guava may be a good choice for you to control blood sugar, because guava is packed with rich dietary fiber, which can slow down the absorption of sugar in the body.

Lower cholesterol level and protect cardiovascular system

Kidney patients sometimes have high cholesterol level. Guava helps reduce cholesterol in the blood and prevents it from thickening, thereby maintaining the fluidity of blood so as to reduce the risk of heart disease.

Generally speaking, eating guava is good for FSGS patients. But they should avoid too much guava intake because of its high content of potassium. If you want to know more information about FSGS healthy living, please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.
