2013-02-08 17:09

Can People with FSGS Drink Alcohol  “Can people with FSGS drink alcohol? I am anxious to know the answer, because I can’t control myself not to drink. However, I was diagnosed with FSGS one week ago, so my doctor suggests me to quit it. Is stopping alcohol a must for me?”

I know many patients with FSGS have the same experience with this patient. Because FSGS is not an easy condition to be treated, many patients are recommended a strict diet that is used to assist their whole treatment. To some of drinking addicts, alcohol is cruelly removed from their life.

Why can’t people with FSGS drink alcohol? We all know alcohol can impact our blood pressure largely. Drinking too much will lead to hypertension, which is a risk factor of FSGS. According to the research, roughly 50% of patients with FSGS have high blood pressure. It will threaten patients’ life if high blood pressure is raised by alcohol, because too high blood pressure will accelerate the progression of patients’ condition. In addition, there are many other impacts of alcohol on FSGS.

◆ Containing a lot of carbohydrate, alcohol will aggravate their hyperlipidaemia, which is also a risk factor of renal failure.

◆ Consuming alcohol may easily cause heart diseases like heart failure.

◆ When you are taking some medicines such as steroids or herbal medicines, alcohol is more likely to destroy the medical effects.

◆ Alcohol will lower your immunity which has been damaged partially by kidney disease.

From the above, I believe you have known the answer to “can people with FSGS drink alcohol”. Remember whenever our health is most important. If your doctor tells you that you can’t drink alcohol, you can drink some alternative drinks such as water and fruit juice. If you still have some other question about foods people with FSGS can eat or not eat, you can consult online.
