To people with FSGS, their doctors usually suggest them a healthy diet with correct amount of high-quality protein, low salt and fat, high vegetables and fruits consume, etc. If the patients’ phosphorus and calcium level is higher than normal, they should avoid nearly all grains and some vegetables and fruits.

According to the research, milk contains 80% of high-quality protein whose structure is very similar to the body structure and this determines milk can meet these patients’ need of high-quality protein. High-quality protein is not only beneficial to patients’ overall health but also won’t increase the workload on patients’ impaired kidney. Besides, milk contains rich essential amino-acid and a balance of phosphorus and calcium. Therefore, even though these patients’ phosphorus and calcium level is higher than normal, they can still consume milk.

How much milk can they drink everyday?

Milk is indeed good to people with FSGS, but excess milk will also increase their kidney’s burden. A correct amount of drink is important. Generally, a bag of milk, which is about 250mml, is suggested to these patients. What’s more, they can also consume one egg white every day.
