Can FSGS Patients Eat Walnut

Can FSGS Patients Eat WalnutCan FSGS patients eat walnut? Kidney experts tell us to judge whether walnut is suit for FSGS patients, it is very necessary to analyze what nutritions contained in it.

1. It contains fiber, which helps reduce LDL, or “ bad” cholesterol, and protects against heart disease ad some types of cancer.

2. It is the good source of proteins, especially high quality protein.

3. It also contains rich minerals like potassium, iron, magnesium, copper and manganese.

4. It supplies omega-3 fatty acids, which are health fats that encourage the heart and reduce inflammation.

In addition, walnut is beneficial in treating depression and insomnia for FSGS patients. Last but not the least, walnut is well known for its benefits to the brain health, and it also can delay senescence.

From the above information, we can see that eating a right amount of walnuts are very beneficial for FSGS patient’s health. However, for those patients with high potassium and phosphorus level, we have to say they should avoid or limit the walnuts intake try their best. The reason may blame to the FSGS itself. As we all know that our kidneys play an important role in keeping the balance of phosphorus and potassium in our body. Unfortunately, for FSGS patients, due to damaged kidney and declined kidney function, both the potassium and phosphorus can bot be removed successfully from the body. As a result, a lot of potassium and phosphorus accumulate both in blood and kidneys. If patients still consume enough potassium and phosphorus from the diet, there is no doubt that the illness condition will become worse and worse.
