Healthy Living for FSGS

Focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a rare disease whose cause is unknown and is a condition in which the glomeruli leak protein from the blood into the urine. It is described as focal because only some of the glomeruli become scarred (while others remain normal) and segmental as only part of an individual glomerulus is damaged. It is one of the causes of chronic kidney failure and nephrotic syndrome.

Except the necessary therapy in clinic such as dialysis, kidney transplant, natural remedies, and other medication, the healthy living for FSGS plays an important role at the same time. Healthy living includes life habit, daily activities, diet, state of mind and so forth.

Forming a good habit:

For FSGS patients, they need to quit smoking and drink alcohol. Because large amount of alcohol and smoke will elevate the blood pressure and strengthen the burden on the kidney which will affect the kidney function. What’s more important is early to bed and early to rise.

Maintaining a healthy diet:

A healthy diet plays a key role in the treatment of FSGS disease. FSGS patients should maintain a healthy diet in their lifetime, which can effectively help to control and improve the FSGS disease. Correct amounts of protein and fluid intake are important according to your doctor recommendations. A healthy diet consists of low-salt, low-sugar, and emphasis on fruits and vegetables. A low salt diet may help with swelling in the hands and legs. And also vitamins intake is also necessary.

Keeping daily activities:

FSGS patients need to do some mild activities for improvement of the disease. Some exercise is necessary and a must-be for patients. Such as jogging, swimming, a morning stroll.

Except that the list mentioned above, the patients need to keep a good state of mind. FSGS patients should be optimistic about their conditions, and hold fast on hopes in their hands. In all we need to regulate and enrich our lifestyle and be in a good mood everyday for a healthy living.
