Proper Diet Plan to Lower Hypertension for FSGS Patients

Question: My son is 18 years old with FSGS. Now, his blood pressure increases abnormally. I want to give him a proper diet plan to reduce his high blood pressure.

Answer: High blood pressure is one typical symptom of FSGS kidney disease. If uncontrolled timely, hypertension will worsen patients’ prognosis and speed up the progression of FSGS kidney disease. In addition to anti-hypertensive medicines, patients should also follow a correct diet plan to reduce their high blood pressure and protect kidneys.

For most FSGS patients, their high blood pressure has a close link with fluid and sodium retention. Therefore, they should follow a diet plan through paying attention to the following aspects.

1. Follow a low-sodium diet: Extra sodium intake can cause more fluid to retain in the body, leading blood pressure to increase further. Therefore, dietary intake of sodium should be 2,000~3,000 mg every day.

2. Control fluid intake: Just like sodium intake, kidney patients with high blood pressure should also reduce their fluid intake. Therefore, patients should control their fluid intake.

3. Limit protein intake: Impaired kidneys are unable to eliminate protein metabolic waste product efficiently, so patients should control the total intake of protein. However, they had better choose high-quality protein.

To get an individual diet plan for controlling high blood pressure and FSGS, you can consult your family doctor or doctor online.
