When people are sick, they worry about what they eat or drink. FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis) is one type of glomeruli disease. I would like to list some fruits for FSGS patients with severe proteinuria. Any questions, please talk with our doctors online directly.
Fruits recommended for FSGS patients with proteinuria
Proteinuria occurs when the leakage of protein in urine is more than 3.5 grams over 24 hours. Along with protein, some other nutritions including calcium, magnesium, zinc or other minerals that will unit with protein.
You are recommended to take fresh vegetables and fruits like cranberry, pomegranate and apple. If FSGS patients have high potassium level, they should avoid bananas, lemon, kiwi fruit, oranges, longan and mango.
Protein is one of essential nutrition for FSGS patients, and they need to take high-quality protein foods to meed the body’s meets. Recommended foods include milk, fish, lean meat and egg white.
Treatment for proteinuria in FSGS patients
Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system blockade (with angiotensin-converting enzyme [ACE] inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers [ARBs]) reduces proteinuria and slows progression in proteinuric kidney diseases. However, whether or not this is effective in primary FSGS is unknown.
-Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
In our hospital, Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we treat kidney disease mainly by TCM. The key effect of Chinese herbs our experts choose is to improve blood circulation. The terminal goal of our treatment is to enhance kidney function. As long as kidneys can function adequately, the protein can be absorbed effectively and glomeruli can get enough blood and oxygen to repair themselves.
Both oral medicines or external applications may be given to FSGS patients. If you are interested in our medicines, please leave a message below. Our doctor will reply you as soon as possible. The online service is for free.
