Can Stage 4 FSGS Patients Eat Jackfruit

Can Stage 4 FSGS Patients Eat JackfruitJust like orange, lemon and apple, jackfruit is also one common fruit in our daily life, and many people like to eat jackfruit. Because of its high amount of nutrient like vitamin, minerals, electrolytes, fiber, etc, quite a number of patients with Stage 4 FSGS think jackfruit is good for them. Is this true?

At Stage 4 FSGS, a large amount of kidneys have been damaged, so kidneys are unable to filter blood and maintain the internal environment normally. In this case, patients should pay attention to eating correct foods. In view of this, not all Stage 4 FSGS patients can consume this sweet and delicious fruit. This is because jackfruit is rich in sugar and potassium.

To manage FSGS, these patients may be suggested to take steroids and immunosuppressants. Then, patients are at a risk of high blood sugar. If so, patients should control their jackfruit. Besides, if they are diagnosed with high potassium level, they should also control their consumption of this fruit.

After finding out when patients with Stage 4 FSGS should avoid jackfruit, you can determine whether you can eat it or not. If yes, you can get the following benefits from this fruit.

- Balance protein and carbohydrate intake: People with severe kidney damage usually need to take more carbohydrate to get energy instantly with low protein diet. From this point, jackfruit is worth a try.

- Reduce high blood pressure: Since jackfruit is one high-potassium food, it can fight against the effect of sodium on increasing the blood pressure.

- Boost immunity: As we all know, foods rich in vitamin C can help boost patients’ immune system, while jackfruit is rich in vitamin C. To make Stage 4 FSGS patients prevent infections, cold and fever, patients should control their jackfruit intake.
