Protein Supplements for FSGS Patients with Hemodialysis

Protein Supplements for FSGS Patients with Hemodialysis“My son suddenly got sick and has been on hemodialysis for one and a half years. Do you have suggestions of protein supplements for FSGS?” Nowadays more and more people begin to realize the important role diet plays in the treatment of kidney disease. If you have the similar protein we referred, hope the following information can help you exclude the difficulty and anxiety. If you still have any question, please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.

Why FSGS patients with hemodialysis need more protein?

FSGS impairs your kidney function to filter waste products from the blood. When your kidneys are not severely damaged, protein intake should be limited, because too much protein consumption will increase the workload of kidneys and speed up kidney failure. But as long as you start dialysis, you should increase protein intake, because dialysis does not only cleanse waste products and excessive fluid, but also take away some of protein from your blood. Therefore, you should supplement more protein to satisfy the need of your body so as to prevent malnutrition.

Protein intake for FSGS patients with hemodialysis

Generally speaking, hemodialysis patients should consume 1.2 g/ kg protein per day and more than 50% of them should be high quality protein, because high quality protein contains more essential amino acids, which can be absorbed by body easily to make protein. Milk, egg white, fish and lean meat are all high quality protein. Plant protein should be limited, because they contain less essential amino acids, which increases waste products in the blood so as to cause further damage to your body.

The above information is a general introduction to protein supplements for FSGS patients with hemodialysis. Besides protein, you should pay attention to other aspects of diet, such as vitamin supplement, trace element supplement, fluid intake and so on.
