Foods for 6-year old boy with FSGS
● Foods low in sodium. If he likes to eat pickles, sausages, bacon, hot dogs or fast foods, etc, you should cut off these foods on his diet. Some snacks, nuts and seeds that is rich in potassium, phosphorous and sodium are not good for him. Giving him more fresh vegetables and fruits like cucumber, cabbages, cauliflower, cranberry, lemon or cherries, is recommended.
● High-quality protein foods. When protein breaks down in the body, it can produce wastes discharged by kidneys. Thereby, FSGS patients may be required to reduce protein intake. However, protein in one of the necessary nutrition for children, so it cannot be totally avoided. High-quality protein food like egg white, lean meat and milk is good choices.
● Drinks. You should let him stay away from some carbonated drinks and caffeine-contained drinks. Drinking enough water is the most natural way for your child to flush the body.
A diet cannot treat this kidney disease, because the root cause of all symptoms are damaged renal tissues. No certain food or drink can achieve that goal. You need to find a holistic treatment for your child. As long as medicines or therapies can repair the damaged glomeruli, the remaining kidney function can be protected and enhanced. As a result, all symptoms can be completely relieved. If you need information about natural therapies for FSGS patients, you can leave a message below.
