FSGS: Can You Drink Alcohol If you Are On Dialysis

FSGS: Can You Drink Alcohol If you Are On DialysisAlcohol, not only to men, it also has the enormous attraction to women in our daily life. But for FSGS patients, can you drink alcohol if you are on dialysis? Now, follow us and try to find the answer.

We know many patients with FSGS have the same experience just as that mentioned above. Because FSGS is too complicated to treat easily, many patients are required to have a strict diet which is used to assist their whole treatment, including limit the alcohol intake. To those of drinking addicts, the behavior to removed alcohol from their life ruthlessly is so cruel. But we have no other choices.

It may be safe for patients with FSGS to drink alcohol if they have their blood sugar within the control, but it must be counted within the normal fluid allowance and diet, and medicines also must be taken into consideration. Although alcohol has no nutritional benefit, it does have calories. Make sure you take this into consideration when designing a diet plan.

But it is not absolute because alcohol may has a bad influence whether on FSGS patients or dialysis itself.

1. Drinking too much will lead to high blood pressure which is a high risk factor for FSGS, even drive them to go to die.

2. When you are taking some certain medicines such as steroids or herbal medicines, etc, alcohol is more likely to destroy medical effects.

3. Alcohol will lower your immunity which has been damaged partially by kidney disease.

4. Drinking alcohol can lead to heart problems easily, such as heart failure.
