2012-11-21 09:00

FSGS is a common reason which can cause Nephrotic Syndrome, and it is not easy to treat. There is a group of patients with FSGS does not respond to the steroid drugs well, so the condition can develop into Renal Failure within years. The healthy diet plays a helping role in slowing the development of the disease. Here we will talk about diet for FSGS patients.

Generally speaking, for kidney disease patients, low protein diet is needed, in order not to increase the kidneys’ burden. But for patients with FSGS, if there is massive proteinuria, it means many proteins are lost. At this time, if FSGS patients still are advised to control the intake of proteins, weakness, nausea, vomiting and malnutrition may appear, which is because proteins are the necessary materials for human body. So FSGS patients don’t need to strictly limit the intake of proteins, the amount should meet the human body’s need. Also the high-quality proteins are preferable, such as milk, egg, lean meat, fish, lean meat and so on. That is one point about diet for FSGS patients.
