What Is The Proper Diet For FSGS PatientsIn addition to the medication treatment, diet therapy is also a very important part for FSGS patients, according to many clinical experiments. In other words, not all the patients need to follow the same diet plan. Recently, more and more patients with FSGS go around asking: what is the proper diet for FSGS patients on earth? Fortunately, this article mainly aims at telling the exact answer.

1. Having moderate protein

Generally speaking, for FSGS patients with illness condition in early stage ( stage 1-3 ), 0.6-0.8g of protein per pound of body weight is suggested per day. And for these with stage 4 FSGS, they are allowed to consume 0.4g of protein per pound of body weight a day. While for FSGS patients in stage 5 who still don’t start dialysis, 0.2g of protein intake per pound a day is proper and once they began dialysis, they usually need to ingest more protein than normal people. In addition, high quality protein which can be found in egg white, fresh fish, milk, lean meat, etc is proved to have less burden on damaged kidneys, for this reason, these high quality protein foods are highly recommended to FSGS patients.
