Can FSGS Patients Drink Lemon Water

Can FSGS Patients Drink Lemon WaterLemon is packed with rich nutrients, such as vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and fiber. Drinking lemon water can bring you many health benefits, but for FSGS patients, who have many diet restrictions, can they drink lemon water? After reading this article, you will find the answer (You can also get the answer directly from online doctor).

Drinking lemon water helps boost immune system.

Because of poor immune system, FSGS patients run a high risk of infections, such as cold. Frequent infections can speed up glomerulosclerosis. Rich vitamin C in lemon strengthens your immune system so as to keep infections away.

Drinking lemon water helps cleanse your body.

FSGS impairs your kidneys ability to remove waste products and toxins from the blood. Lemon juice is diuretic, which can flush out those waste products by increasing the rate of urination in the body.

Drinking lemon water helps balance pH levels.

Kidney is not only a blood purification organ, but also responsible for regulating pH levels. With the development of FSGS, acidosis usually occurs because of the accumulated acidic material. Lemons are one of the most alkalizing foods. Drinking lemon water can help remove overall acidity in the body, including uric acid in the joints so as to relieve inflammation.

Drinking lemon water can also aid digestion, keep your skin blemish-free, help you lose weight, boost energy, cut out caffeine, etc.

Can FSGS patients drink lemon water? From the above, we can see its various health benefits, but it does not mean you can drink lemon water. For example, if your blood potassium level is high, you should limit the intake of lemon water because of its high content of potassium. If you have severe edema, you should avoid lemon water.
