What Precautions Should We Take with FSGS

What Precautions Should We Take with FSGSAlmost all kidney patients want to know how to avoid dialysis. Clinically, many patients live a normal life for decades, while some other people develop kidney failure with in 1-2 years and then they have to live on dialysis. In fact, kidney failure can be prevented. What precautions should we take with FSGS?

Precautions should be taken on high blood pressure.

High blood pressure is one of the factors that cause the deterioration of kidney disease. And it also impairs your hearts, leading to heart failure. Heart failure is the main cause of death for kidney patients. Under normal circumstance, you should keep blood pressure into 130/80 mmHg. If your FSGS is caused by diabetes or you have massive proteinuria, you should keep blood pressure under 125/75 mmHg. In order to bring blood pressure into control, you should limit salt intake within 5 g. Sometimes you have to follow a salt free diet.

Precautions should be taken on high protein intake.

High protein intake is another factor that worsens your disease. Though patients need more nutrients to build a strong body, but kidney patients should avoid high protein intake, because it may increase protein excretion, increase urea level and creatinine level. But it does not mean you should avoid protein intake. The amount of protein intake depends on your kidney function.

Precautions should be taken on unhealthy lifestyle.

Smoking and drinking alcohol impair your blood vessels and cause further damage to the kidneys. Overwork lowers your immunity so as to expose you to more diseases. Junk food should also be kept away for it increases your cholesterol level. Therefore, in the daily you should give up this unhealthy lifestyle.

The progression of kidney disease is closely related with our life. We should take precautions in the life to prevent kidney failure. Only in this way can we enjoy our life. For more information about FSGS, please feel free to contact online doctor.
