For FSGS patients, illness condition should be put into consideration while making diet changes. They may need to make different diet changes due to different illness condition, but they generally need to:
Adjust protein intake: Improper protein intake increases kidney burden and worsens illness condition, which is not beneficial for FSGS patients to bring their kidney problem under control. Therefore, adjusting protein intake is necessary. How much protein intake depends on the specific illness condition, so you can describe your illness condition to our online doctors and to get some suggestions.
Eat less salt: Salt is a common and basic seasoning in our daily life. It is rich in sodium, however for FSGS patients, they need to limit salt intake as eating too much salt not only elevates blood pressure, but also trigger or aggravate swelling.
Fluid intake: Limitation of fluid intake is necessary if there is fluid retention.
Adjust potassium intake: FSGS patients run a high risk for hyperkalemia, so staying far away from high potassium foods like banana, while beans, dark leafy greens, salmon, mushroom and avocados is very important, if lab test shows high potassium level in blood.
Ingest much more calcium and limit phosphorus intake when phosphorus level is elevated due to FSGS.
