Can You Be A Vegan with FSGS

Can You Be A Vegan with FSGSFSGS patients are often advised to follow a restricted diet to make the nutrient balanced, while controlling their state of illness. Can you be a vegan with FSGS?

To be a vegan, you should exclude meat, eggs, dairy products and all other animal-derived ingredients from your diet, and you should add fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains, nuts, beans and soy products into the diet. This living style can benefit you a lot. Here let’s have a quick look at them.

-By reducing the amount of saturated fats from your diet, you reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

-Fresh vegetables and fruits can provide various antioxidants, such as vitamins. They can boost your immune system and help you fight against kidney disease.

-Fiber can help you lower cholesterol level, reduce sugar level, improve bowel movements and digestion.

-With a healthy vegan diet, you can acquire adequate calcium and magnesium to prevent osteoporosis, which is a complication of kidney disease.

There are also other health benefits, such as ease anemia, control blood pressure, keep healthy skin, boost energy, etc.

However, to be a vegan has some disadvantages. All people have to eat protein to satisfy the need of body, so do FSGS patients. But vegan acquires protein from nut, beans, soy and so on. These food can not only contain protein, but also produce much more waste than the meat so that they may increase the burden on the kidneys and speed up kidney damage. In addition, some of them are high in phosphorus, which can cause skin itch.

Whether you can be a vegan with FSGS or not, it depends on your medical condition. If you can reverse FSGS, you can enjoy whatever the food you like.
