What Food You Should Eat With Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis

What Food You Should Eat With Focal Segmental GlomerulosclerosisFSGS is the abbreviation of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. Different FSGS patients have different prognosis, and in severe cases, they may have kidney failure eventually. In fact, correct foods can help manage FSGS to some extent. What kinds of food can you eat with FSGS?

As one glomerular disorder, FSGS affects kidney filters’ ability to remove extra fluid and waste products from the body and keep nutritious substances in the body. Then, swelling, high serum creatinine and BUN level, and proteinuria occurs easily. Therefore, the dietary principles for FSGS patients include several aspects:
