Some FSGS patients need to eat high potassium.

Swelling is a typical symptom of FSGS. To relieve swelling, diuretics are often used to flush out the excess fluid in body. With urine, some minerals are passed out of body as well, one of which is potassium. That is why some FSGS patients suffer from low blood potassium level. In such a case, you can eat food high in potassium, such as bananas, avocados, potatoes, squash, spinach, etc. Besides, you can also use potassium-sparing diuretics instead.
