How to improve kidney function through diet for FSGS Patients? When realizing the importance of diet on FSGS treatment, more and more patients begin to seek advice on diet. In this article, let’s have a quick look.

Diet for FSGS patients to improve kidney function.

There is not a diet that is suitable for all FSGS patients, after all different patients have different medical conditions. In general,

-If you have high blood pressure, you should limit salt intake. If you have severe swelling, salt should be avoided for a period of time.

-If you have massive proteinuria, you should restrict protein intake. How much protein you can eat depends on the severity of kidney damage. And when choosing protein, you had better choose high quality protein, such as egg white, lean meat and fish, which does not add too much burden on your kidneys.

Besides, it can inhibit kidney inflammation and stop kidney fibrosis to prevent further kidney damage. After a period of treatment, not only symptoms such as proteinuria and swelling will be controlled, but also your kidney function will get improved gradually.
