To Prevent Protein Loss, What Type of Diet You Suggest to FSGS Patients

To Prevent Protein Loss, What Type of Diet You Suggest to FSGS Patients“I am suffering from FSGS. To prevent protein loss, what type of diet you suggest?” This is a message I selected from my email igacure@gmail.com. Everyday I will receive the similar questions, thereby I will give you a guidance on diet in this article.

To prevent protein loss, you should restrict protein intake.

The reason why protein can go through the kidneys is that the permeability of glomeruli increases and charge barrier goes wrong, which are like holes in sieves. The more protein you take, the more it will go out. Therefore, it is better for you to reduce protein intake, but it does not mean you should avoid it completely, because you need protein to satisfy the need of body. High quality protein is rich in essential amino acids, which can be absorbed by our body completely so as to reduce the workload of kidneys, hence it is encouraged to eat moderately.

Besides, you should reduce salt intake, which can help relieve swelling and high blood pressure. And you should supplement vitamins by eating more fresh vegetables and fruits.

Diet is not enough for you to prevent protein loss.

If you really want to stop proteinuria, you have to take medical treatment. Besides steroids and immunosuppressants, you can actually try Chinese medicine. It can counteract the side effects of those western medicine to help you achieve a better effect. For example, Toxin-Removing Treatment can cleanse the blood and improve blood circulation to make internal environment good for kidney self-healing. When kidney condition gets well, all associated symptoms including proteinuria will be under control. It can also regulate the abnormal immune system and strengthen your immunity to prevent relapse.

To prevent protein loss, you should not only follow a renal-friendly diet, but also take a medical treatment to repair kidney damage and promote kidney function. For more information on FSGS treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
