A Meal Plan for Vegetarians in FSGS

A Meal Plan for Vegetarians in FSGSIf vegetarians have FSGS, they are more likely to need to modify their meal plan to reduce the burden on kidneys and protect remaining kidney functioning tissues. If you happen to have a similar case, you can follow me to develop a correct diet plan.

Firstly, determine which category of vegetarian you are.

According to their eating foods, most vegetarians fall into four types:

- Vegan: Eat only plant foods but no animal products.

- Lacto-vegetarians: Only eat plant foods and dairy products.

- Lacto-ovo vegetarians: Consume plant foods, dairy products and eggs.

- Pesco-vegetarians: Consume plants foods,dairy products, eggs and fish.

Secondly, learn dietary principles for FSGS patients.

FSGS means there is scarring in some kidney filters. If kidneys can still filter blood normally and patients don’t have any symptom, vegetarians with FSGS are only suggested to limit their intake of sodium and protein. This requires them to avoid processed, commercially-produced plant proteins, salted nuts, frozen entrees, pickles, and so on. Besides, patients should choose high-quality protein such as egg, fish and dairy products, if they can consume these foods.

With the loss of kidney functioning tissues, patients may be faced by high phosphorus level and high potassium level. It is reported that many plant foods contain rich potassium and phosphorus, so patients with advanced FSGS should pay highly attention to the consumption of these foods.

Finally, know the health benefits of vegetarian diet for FSGS patients.

A vegetarian diet can help bring a lot of benefits for patients with FSGS kidney disease. That is to say, as long as vegetarians develop a correct diet plan, they can get improvement from their meal plan.

- Decline protein leakage in the urine
