Does Papaya Help to Lower Proteinuria in People with FSGS

Does Papaya Help to Lower Proteinuria in People with FSGSI think you may not be stranger to papaya. It is a kind of fruit with a delicious sweet taste. But you may not have a clear mind in its health benefits. Does papaya help to lower the proteinuria in people with FSGS?

Papaya may help lower proteinuria for FSGS patients

There is a kind of enzyme in papaya called papain. It dissolves protein tissue when it comes in contact with certain types of meat, such as red meat, fish and other vegetables high protein so that they can be absorbed by the stomach readily with the help of a digestive enzyme. This may help you lower proteinuria. Besides, the aqueous seed extract of unripe mature fruits of papaya induces antioxidant and oxidative free radical scavenging and help kidney to recover. When your kidneys repair themselves, protein can not leak from the blood vessels.

Papaya has other health benefits for FSGS patients.

-Papaya is packed with rich fiber, which helps lower blood cholesterol levels so as to decrease your risk of heart disease.

-Impaired kidney function affects the body to absorb calcium, so kidney patients often have bone disease. Papaya is a good source of vitamin K, which acts as a modifier of bone matrix proteins, improves calcium absorption and may reduce urinary excretion of calcium.
