How Avocados Affect People with FSGS

Question: I have stage 2 FSGS. My creatinine is 1.2, so no problems now. Just want to check out how avocados affect people with kidney disease.

How Avocados Affect People with FSGSAnswer: Avocado is an incredibly healthy food, which is loaded with important nutrients. From what you said, your kidney function is not affected by FSGS now, so there is few restriction in avocados. Now let’s have see some of its health benefits.

Lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

FSGS is a cause of Nephrotic Syndrome. And hyperlipemia is a typical symptom of FSGS. Without good control, it will increase your risk of heart disease. Numerous studies have shown that eating avocados can help you improve heart disease risk factors like bad cholesterol and triglycerides.

Inhibit inflammation

After immunofluorescence examination, we can see that the scarred part of kidneys is caused by IgM, C3, C1q and some other immune complexes for FSGS patients. They cause kidney inflammation in the early stage and later kidney damage. Avocados has great anti-inflammatory properties because of its high content of phytosterols, carotenoid antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids and polyhydroxolated fatty alcohols.

Regulate blood sugar

If your FSGS is associated with diabetes, avocados are a good choice for you. Because avocados is rich in monounsaturated fats, which can help stop insulin resistance so as to regulate blood sugar level. High soluble fiber in avocados can also help keep blood sugar levels steady.

Boost immune system

Compared with healthy people, FSGS patients have poor immune system. That is why they catch cold or infections frequently. Cold and infections can cause further damage to the kidneys, so it is necessary for you to boost immune system. Avocados are a good source of glutathione, which is a powerful antioxidant associated with immune system health.

Now you have a general knowledge about how avocados affect FSGS. Besides diet, you should pay attention to medical treatment. Though your FSGS is not severe now, if you do not take treatment as early as possible, it may quickly develop to kidney failure. If you would like to acquire a personalized diet plan or treatment plan, please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.
