Eat less salt
Study shows that eating too much salt may worsen swelling and high blood pressure, which can be common symptoms of FSGS. Thereby, they can try to eat less salted foods, processed products, bacon, pickled vegetables and so on.
Moderate intake of protein foods
In normal case, patients can ingest 0.6-0.8g/kg protein foods per day. However, as the illness condition varies, the specific amount should be different. Remember that the more severe the condition, the less the ingestion of protein foods. Besides, to meet the basic needs of the body, they can take some high-quality protein foods, such as, fish, milk, egg white, lean meat and so on.

Balance of potassium and phosphorus
As kidneys fail to maintain the balance of electrolytes, extra potassium and phosphorus may build up in the body. And high potassium level can cause irregular heartbeat or even heart failure, while high phosphorus level may lead to bone diseases, which affects patients life quality to a large degree. So foods loaded in potassium should be limited, such as, bean-products, nuts, banana, mango, tomato and so on. As for foods rich in phosphorus, experts at our Huaxia Kidney Disease Hospital have made such a food list, any interests, you can chat with our online doctor directly.
