Is Tofu OK for FSGS PatientsFSGS stands for Focal Segmental Glomerulonephritis, referring inflammation on glomeruli—The tiny unit where urine forms and blood is filtered. FSGS patients require to keep a kidney-friendly diet. Well then, is tofu OK for FSGS patients?

Restrictions in a renal diet

1. Limited sodium: Eating too much sodium will lead to water-retention, causing swelling or high blood pressure. The recommended amount of sodium ranges from 3g to 5g.

2. Controlled protein: When protein breaks down in the body, it will produce urea that is discharged by the kidneys with urine. With glomerular damage, the kidneys cannot discharge excessive urea, resulting in high BUN (blood urea nitrogen) level.

3. Less potassium and phosphorous

When your kidneys are damaged, they also fail to maintain the electrolyte balance so that the potassium and phosphorous is abnormal in the blood.

Is Tofu OK to be added into a renal diet?

Tofu contain more protein than soybean or bean products. Moreover, this kind of protein is called “plant protein”, which is not as goof as animal protein.

Too much intake of tofu will burden the kidneys, because the kidneys have to work overload to discharge the wastes produced by tofu. In that case, you can take some other foods that contain high-quality protein, for example, lean meat, egg white, milk, and fish.

Treatment for FSGS except for diet

Timely and proper treatment can help you treat FSGS with a better outcome. Traditional treatment for FSGS concentrate on BP (blood pressure) and proteinuria control. Medicines belonging to angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors or angiotensin-receptor blockers (ARBs) are used.

However, reports about the side effects of these medicines are common on the newspapers. Some people complain that those medicines can do nothing but bringing adverse effects to them.

Fortunately, a new treatment for FSGS has been innovated. This natural treatment is called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which has the function of expanding blood vessels, reducing inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix. Therefore, it can repair the glomerular damage from the root instead of relieving symptoms.
