Is Pineapple Good for FSGS Patients

Is Pineapple Good for FSGS PatientsPineapple is not only a kind of delicious fruit, but also offers many health benefits, which can help you improve your physical condition. But is it good for FSGS patients? Read on to find out the answer.

Boost immune system

Sometimes FSGS patients may have to take immunosuppressants to suppress inflammatory response. This kind of medicine can also lower your immune system, which exposes you to various diseases, such as cold and infection. They can add insult to injury and speed up kidney failure. Vitamin C in pineapple boost your immune system due to its strong antioxidant effects.


When your kidney function declines, wastes such as uric acid build up in the blood. They may deposit in the joints, leading to arthritis. Pineapple is anti-inflammatory which prevent inflammation in arthritis and gives strength to the bones.

Prevent heart disease

Heart disease is a common complication of kidney disease. The powerful antioxidants in pineapple keep free radicals away and lower the cholesterol levels. The high amounts of potassium and lower amounts of sodium in pineapple can help you maintain normal blood pressure. Therefore, eating pineapple regularly helps you reduce the risk of heart disease.

Strengthen bones

With the progression of FSGS, patients run a high risk of renal bone disease, because the damaged kidneys can not activate vitamin D to help you absorb calcium. Pineapple contain manganese, which is also a trace mineral that your body needs to build bones and connective tissues.

Is pineapple good for FSGS patients? From the above, we can see that the answer is certain. But you should also pay attention to the daily intake. Too much is as bad as too little. How much you can take depends on your medical condition. For more information, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
