Dangers of too much salt intake

Salt is a great source of sodium. Sodium can retain water in body and increase blood volume, leading to elevated blood pressure. And with FSGS, it is likely for you to suffer from severe swelling. If you do not restrict salt intake, your condition will become worse.

Besides, kidney is an important organ to maintain the balance of sodium. And healthy kidney follows the principle of “eat more and discharge more, eat less and discharge less, and no eat and no discharge”. If you eat excess sodium, protein and calcium can also be excreted out of body with sodium, making your proteinuria and renal bone disease worse, which is not good for you to control the disease well.

Dangers of too less salt intake

To restrict salt intake does not mean you have to avoid salt intake. Long-term excessive salt limitation can cause low blood sodium level, leading to poor appetite, weakness, dizziness, etc. In severe case, it can cause rapid heart beat, blurred vision, nausea, etc.

Salt intake for FSGS patients

For healthy people, salt intake should be controlled into 6g per day. If you have high blood pressure, swelling, less urine or stop of urine, salt intake should be limited into 3g. If your condition is very severe, you had better avoid salt intake for a period of time. Once your condition gets well, you can return to a low salt intake.
