Can FSGS Patients Eat Ginger

Can FSGS Patients Eat GingerGinger may not taste very good, but it can not halt us from enjoying it. Because it is packed with various health benefits. Can FSGS patients eat ginger?

Ginger reduces arthritic inflammation.

FSGS impairs your kidneys’ ability to remove waste products from the blood. Some waste products, such as uric acid may deposit in the joints, leading to arthritis. Ginger contains some of the most potent anti-inflammatory fighting substances known and is a natural powerful painkiller.

Ginger helps you prevent cold and flu.

Cold and flu add insult to injury, speeding up kidney failure. In Asia, we often use ginger to prevent cold and flu. You can shed or chop ginger and then cook it in hot water. Drinking the water regularly is beneficial, because it helps you improve immune system to fight against the diseases.

Ginger protects you from cardiovascular disease.

Cardiovascular disease is a common complication of FSGS. Fresh ginger contains a compound similar to salicylic acid. It can dilute the blood and block blood clotting, which helps decrease blood cholesterol level and reduce blood pressure. Ginger can also speed up blood circulation. All of those functions reduces your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Ginger helps you control blood sugar level.

If your FSGS is associated with high blood sugar level, ginger is a good choice for you. Because gingerol in ginger can stimulate the proliferation of adipose cells and adipose cells can absorb glucose in the blood so as to keep blood blood sugar level in check.


Do not take ginger in the evening. Because it may stimulate your intestinal tract and affect your sleeping quality.

Can FSGS patients eat ginger? Though ginger has so many health benefits, it is not good for all people. Even if you can take it, you should pay attention to the daily intake. Therefore, you had better talk with a doctor, who can help you make a wise decision.
