Should I change my diet if I have Fabry disease?
Individuals living with Fabry disease with normally functioning kidneys do not typically need to change their diet. People with reduced kidney function need to be aware that some parts of a normal diet may speed their kidney failure. Dietitians are available at kidney doctors to help patients with kidney disease limit the amount of protein, cholesterol, potassium, and/or sodium they eat so that the kidneys have less work to do. Some people with Fabry and normal kidney function find that eating small meals. taking probiotics, and avoiding spicy, lactose-containing, or greasy foods also help decrease GI issues.
