That’s why we can not live without protein. The reason why we should restrict its intake with FSGS is that the damaged kidneys can not remove the metabolic waste of protein from the blood effectively. Because our body can manufacture some amino acids, what we should supplement is the essential amino acids. Protein food such as egg white, lean meat, fish and poultry without skin can all satisfy the need of body, while some soy products should be reduced, because they produce a lot of waste. A restricted protein diet can help you lower blood urea level and creatinine level.
