What to Eat to Stop Worsening for FSGS Patients

Diet is an important part of FSGS treatment. If you do not pay attention to it, it may worsen your disease. What to eat to stop worsening for FSGS patients?

Diet for FSGS patients

What diet you can eat depends on your medical condition. There is not a diet plan that is suitable for all patients. In general, FSGS patients should follow:

-A low protein diet. Too much protein intake can put extra stress on kidneys and speed up glomerulosclerosis. How much protein you can consume depends on your kidney function and weight.

-A low salt diet. It helps you control blood pressure and prevent swelling.

-A high vitamin diet. If you have massive protein leakage, you should supplement moderate vitamin via diet, because with protein leakage, vitamins go out of body. Fresh vegetables and fruits are great sources of vitamins, so you should add them into your diet.

With the progression of FSGS, you may have more restrictions on diet, for example, you have to limit potassium intake or phosphorus intake.

Diet should go together with medical treatment to stop worsening of FSGS.

Diet is very important, but to have a better effect, it should go together with proper medical treatment. Medical treatment for FSGS should not only medicines to control symptoms, because it is only temporarily medical relief. You should repair kidney damage and improve kidney function. In our hospital, we use Chinese medicine to draw toxins out of the renal cells and expel waste products from the blood to set up a good blood environment. It can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys so that oxygen, nutrients and other essential elements can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. After several days’ treatment, your symptoms such as proteinuria and swelling will disappear. After a period of treatment, your FSGS will be under control and you can lead a normal life without worrying about dialysis and kidney transplant.
