Diet Of FSGS Kidney Disease Patients

Diet Of FSGS Kidney Disease PatientsA healthy and reasonable diet of FSGS kidney disease patients not only plays an important role in their body’s growth and development, but also be good for slowing down the progression of FSGS. However, many FSGS patients complain they don’t know what they can eat and they can not eat at all. Don’t worry, follow us, you may get the answer.

1. Have a high quality protein diet

Generally speaking, for kidney disease patients, having a low-protein diet is necessary, in order not to increase the burden of kidney. However, for FSGS kidney disease patients, as we all know most of them have massive proteinuria and it means lots of proteins can lost in the urine. On this occasion, if FSGS patients limit the intake of protein constantly as normals, weakness, vomiting and nausea may appear, which is because protein is a necessary material for human body. Therefore, a high quality protein diet is highly recommended to FSGS kidney disease patients and these foods include milk, lean meat, egg white, fish and so on.

2. Adjust your potassium and phosphorus intake

Normally, FSGS kidney disease patients are suffering from high potassium level and high phosphorus level in the blood, but not everyone. So for those FSGS patients who are diagnosed with high potassium or phosphorus level, please remember to avoid vegetables and fruits that are rich in potassium and phosphorus, like banana, persimmon, apple, pear, etc.

3. Eat less salt

Eat less salt is also considered as a main part of the reasonable diet of FSGS patients. Whether you eat in home or outside, please remember to eat some foods that contain less salt.
