Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) diet is an essential component of ideal treatment that a patient can easily and readily implement.
A small amount of water intake should be listed in your diet plan, because much fluid will be out of damaged kidneys' control. Water restriction can contribute to balancing body fluids and remedying generalized swelling. Some fruits like grapes, berries and watermelon can be ate when you are thirsty.
Intake of protein plays a major role in FSGS diet, which can be used to reimburse the large amount loss of protein. However, you should avoid excessive amount of protein food, which may increase the burden of the impaired kidneys.
Symptoms like high blood pressure and edema can be aggravated by too much sodium intake, so you need avoid eating salty foods, such as salted drinking, pickles, walnuts, and sated cashew nuts and so on.
