Coconut Oil for FSGS Patients

Coconut Oil for FSGS PatientsFSGS is one glomerular disorder, and a healthy diet plan can help treat this type of kidney disease. Coconut oil is the most nutritional dense part of coconut. Is coconut oil good or bad for patients with FSFS kidney disease?

Coconut oil contains rich saturated fat, but it is cholesterol-free. Some researches prove that coconut oil can help lower high cholesterol level and reduce the risk of heart disease. This is a great help for kidney patients, because heart failure is still the leading cause of death for FSGS patients.

This type of oil has antioxidant properties that can help protect the remaining kidney functioning tissues and prompt the absorption of other minerals. From this point, FSGS patients can consume some coconut oil in their daily life to improve their overall health condition.

Besides, coconut oil can also help lower high blood pressure, boost metabolism, increase bone strength and fight against infections. All of these effects are good for patients with kidney problem.

Although coconut oil has so many health benefits, it doesn’t mean FSGS patients can consume this oil freely. This is because coconut oil still belongs to saturated fat. In view of this, the consumption amount should be controlled tightly. It is better that FSGS patients choose some foods high in unsaturated fatty acid like omega-3 fatty acid.

According to this requirement, patients can add flaxseed, fish oil, olive oil, and other foods into patients’ diet plan. Additionally, patients should develop a low-sodium and low-protein meal plan, so their diet won’t increase the burden on kidneys.

These are only some basic dietary suggestions for these patients, but the individual diet plan should depend on patients’ illness condition. If you want to know more about it, you can contact dietitians here directly.
