Is Chayote Good for FSGS Patients

Is chayote good for FSGS patients? Generally speaking, FSGS patients can eat chayote moderately. Because it can help the patients control some symptoms.

Lower blood pressure

FSGS patients often have high blood pressure. Hypertensive does not only cause further damage to the kidneys, but also increases your risk of heart disease so as to threaten your life. Chayote contains potassium, which can counteract the effect of sodium to dilate blood vessels and lower blood pressure.

Relieve anemia

Because the damaged kidneys can not secrete enough erythropoietin and the body can not absorb enough iron to produce red blood cells, kidney patients often have anemia. Chayote is packed with vitamin B2 and iron which are required by body for the production of red blood cells. Besides, its content of vitamin C, copper and zinc also help the body to absorb iron to alleviate anemia.

Prevent bone disease

Chayote also guards against constipation, lowers cholesterol, controls blood sugar levels, boosts your energy, helps in weight loss, prevent muscle cramps, etc.

Though chayote has so many health benefits, we should consume it within the recommended daily intake. Too much is as bad as too little. If you would like to know more information about FSGS diet, please contact us at igacure@gmail.com or leave a message below.
