What Meat Would Be Suitable for FSGS Patients

Question: I have been diagnosed with FSGS. My doctor has said no animal protein, but only occasionally. What meat would be suitable?

What Meat Would Be Suitable for FSGS PatientsAnswer: In order to slow down the progression to kidney failure, FSGS patients should follow a healthy lifestyle. Diet is an important part of healthy lifestyle.

Why FSGS patients are required to follow a low protein diet?

As to protein, our body needs protein intake to maintain its normal function. FSGS patients are no exception. That is why FSGS patients can not avoid protein intake.

FSGS patients usually have massive protein leakage. The leaky kidney is like a sieve. The more protein you eat, the more protein it leaks. Besides, massive protein intake increases the workload of kidneys so as to speed up glomerulosclerosis. That is why you should limit the intake of protein.

White meat is recommended to FSGS patients.

Lean meat is a kind of high quality protein, which can provide you with all the essential amino acids. Among lean meat, there are usually two types of meat. One is red meat, such as beef, venison, lamb, mutton, etc. And the other is white meat, such as pork, fish and poultry. Red meat is a great source of creatine, which can increase your creatinine level further, and it also contains significant amounts of both saturated fat and cholesterol, which can increase your risk of cardiovascular disease, so you had better choose some white meat to eat in the daily.

How much meat you can take depends on your remaining kidney function. Apart from diet, you should take treatment aggressively to repair the damaged kidneys. When your kidney function improves, there are not so many diet restrictions.
