Should I Quit Sodium Entirely with Nephrotic Syndrome FSGS

Question: I am diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome FSGS since 6 years with 8 g protein leakage, 142 creatinine, and 14 albumin. Should I quite sodium entirely?

Should I Quit Sodium Entirely with Nephrotic Syndrome FSGSAnswer: Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a cause of Nephrotic Syndrome in children and adolescents. Nephrotic Syndrome is a collection of symptoms including proteinuria, swelling, hypoproteinemia and hyperlipemia. From what you said, we can see that your case is very severe. Because your creatinine is a little higher than the normal blood creatinine level (44 to 106 umol/L). It indicates that your kidney function has been impaired by Nephrotic Syndrome.

Sodium intake and Nephrotic Syndrome FSGS

Generally speaking, Nephrotic Syndrome patients should limit the intake of sodium because of the swelling, for sodium can retain fluid in the body so as to worsen edema. But it does not mean you should quite sodium entirely. Sodium is an essential mineral for body. When you suffer from sodium deficiency, you may feel weak, dizzy, poor appetite, headache, etc. Therefore, you should not quit sodium entirely blindly. How much sodium you can eat depends on your medical condition, such as edema and blood pressure.

How to manage your Nephrotic Syndrome FSGS well?

Diet is an important part of treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome FSGS, but it is not enough. What you should do now is to take treatment to reduce protein leakage, lower creatinine level and increase plasma albumin. In China, we use Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) therapies to treat Nephrotic Syndrome. In TCM, there is Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Mai Kang Composition, Medicated Foot Bath, various Medicinal Soup, etc. They can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. They can also provide the damaged kidneys with essential nutrients to help them recover. After a period of treatment, all of these medical conditions will be improved.

Should I quite sodium entirely with Nephrotic Syndrome FSGS? It depends on your medical condition. If you would like to get an accurate answer, please send your medical test report to igacure@gmail.com. After analyzing your case, our doctors will contact you.
