How to Supplement Protein for FSGS Patients with Massive Proteinuria

With FSGS, you usually have massive proteinuria. If you do not supplement the lost protein, it is likely for you to have hypoproteinemia, low immunity and other problems. How to supplement protein? After reading this article, you will find out the answer.

The main source of protein is from diet. But with FSGS, you should consume more animal protein, such as egg white, milk, poultry without skin, fish, etc. Their nutrient value is higher than plant protein.

But it does not mean you can not eat meat. Meat, poultry and milk are rich in essential amino acids, which can be absorbed by our body. As long as you control its consumption within the recommended daily intake, it can benefit you a lot.
