How Can I Control FSGS with Food

How Can I Control FSGS with FoodFocal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a chronic kidney disease. In the long run, you should not only pay attention to medical treatment, but also food. Reasonable food intake can help you consolidate clinical therapeutic efficacy. How can I control FSGS with food?

Low protein diet helps you reduce proteinuria.

FSGS is a cause of Nephrotic Syndrome. And massive proteinuria is a typical symptom of Nephrotic Syndrome. Because of the leaky kidneys, the more protein you eat, the more protein you leak. Therefore, if you have proteinuria, you should reduce protein intake. But it does not mean you should avoid protein. Our body needs proper protein to maintain its function. High quality protein contains more essential amino acids, which can be absorbed by our body, so it is preferred.

Low salt intake helps you control blood pressure.

High blood pressure is also very common among FSGS patients. It can speed up glomerulosclerosis without good control. Too much salt intake can raise your blood pressure further. And salt can also retain water in body. Therefore, if you have high blood pressure or edema, you had better follow a low salt intake about 3-5 g per day.

High vitamins intake helps you boost immune system.

With protein leakage, some vitamins go out of your body as well, so it is likely for FSGS patients to have vitamin deficiency. In such case, you should add more fresh vegetables and fruits into diet, which can not only help you supplement rich vitamins to strengthen your immune system, but also provide you with dietary fiber, trace elements and so on, which are all good for your recovery.

How can I control FSGS with food? What you can or can not eat will change over time, depending on how much kidney function you have and other factors, like having diabetes, edema, high blood pressure, etc. Therefore, I can only give you some general guidance on food. If you would like to get a comprehensive treatment plan, including food plan, you should send your medical test report to igacure@gmail.com. After analyzing your case, our doctors will contact you.
