Can FSGS Patients Have Oranges

Can FSGS Patients Have OrangesAs we all know, in order to achieve a good curative effect, FSGS patients have to follow a restricted diet. That is why many patients are curious about whether they can eat certain food or not. Oranges are very common to see in the daily. Can FSGS patients have oranges? In the following, we will talk about this topic.

Health benefits of oranges for FSGS patients

-Strengthen immune system

If your immune system is not strong enough, you easily get disease. Oranges are full of vitamin C, which neutralize free radicals and protect cells from being damaged so as to prevent infection, cold and some other aliments. They may worsen your kidney disease.

-Prevent cardiovascular disease

Cardiovascular disease is the common complication of kidney disease. The dietary fiber in oranges helps lower cholesterol level. The flavonoid hesperidin and magnesium in oranges help maintain blood pressure. When your blood pressure and cholesterol level are under control, the risk of cardiovascular disease reduces.

-Alkalize the body

When your kidney function declines, your pH can not be regulated. Sometimes the patients may suffer from acidosis. Though oranges are acidic, they contain alkaline minerals that help to balance out the body.

Eating oranges also have other health benefits, such as great for diabetics, prevent hair loss, prevent cancer, good for skin, relieve constipation, good for kidney stone, etc.

If your blood potassium level is high, you had better limit orange intake.

FSGS scars your glomeruli so as to affect their GFR. As a result, waste products can not be removed from the blood. Oranges are great source of potassium. If you eat a lot of orange, your blood potassium level will increase further, leading to hyperkalemia, which may threaten your life.
