Should Patients With FSGS Eat Popcorn

Should Patients With FSGS Eat PopcornOften considered to be junk food, popcorn can actually be part of healthy diet. Popcorn has a few healthy benefits, and when people suffer from Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), can they still eat popcorn?

To know whether patients with FSGS can eat popcorn, we need to know the nutrition in popcorn and whether it will bring health benefits for patients.

Potassium is an important mineral that controls nerve and muscle function. The normal potassium is kept between 3.5 and 5.5 mEq/L by the kidneys. Healthy kidneys remove excess potassium in the urine to help maintain normal levels in the blood. When kidneys fail, they can no longer remove excess potassium, so the levels build up in the body. High potassium in the blood can lead to serious conditions irregular heartbeat, heart failure and sudden death. If your potassium is too high, a renal diet will be given to lower potassium in your diet. Popcorn is a low potassium food. From this aspect, popcorn can be eaten by FSGS patients. However, they should pay attention to the amount.

High fiber in popcorn can alleviate constipation of kidney disease people. Due to fluid limitation and insufficient fiber intake, patients usually suffer from uncomfortable bowel movement. Popcorn with rich fiber can be eaten by FSGS patients to alleviate their constipation.

Popcorn is a whole grain snack, which diminishes the risk of heart disease and diabetes. Patients with diabetes had better not eat popcorn since there is a lot of sugar and cream in the processed popcorn. If you want to eat it, make it by yourself and add less sugar in it.

From the above conditions, popcorn can be eaten by FSGS patients. Different people have different conditions so we cannot guarantee popcorn is 100 percent good for you. In such condition, you can send your question to chinakidneytherapy@gmail.com. We will give you reply as soon as possible.
