If You Have FSGS, Should You Stay Away From Eating Beans

If You Have FSGS, Should You Stay Away From Eating BeansIf a patient has FSGS, should he still stay away from beans? It is common for patient with FSGS to have this doubt.

FSGS means patient has lesion in their glomeruli, and this disease often cause patient to have nephrotic syndrome, which often causes patient to have large amount of proteinuria. As we know, protein is an important nutrient for our body, and the shortage of protein is terrible for body health. Thereby, patient need to supply protein intake at this point.

On the other hand, beans contain lots of nutrients, and they are well known for their abundant protein content, but we often hear that patient with kidney disease should stay away from beans.

The proteins in beans is close to the protein in meat, which is high-quality protein. But as we have said, beans also contain lots of potassium and purine, which may aggravate patient’s condition.

Thereby, if patients do not have problems like hyperkalemia and gout, they do not need to worry about these aspects, especially for patients in the early stage of FSGS. But they should also be careful in the intake of beans, because they contain lots of protein, and patient should restrict their protein intake, which is good for protecting their kidney function.
