If you are a patient of FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis), do you know what symptoms you may experience? Here we give mainly introduce the 5 telling symptoms of FSGS and hope it is helpful for you to understand this illness.
The most telling symptom of FSGS is swelling which also can be called edema and fluid retention. In general, swelling firstly occurs in eyelid, face and lower limbs. Without effective control, it may spread to the whole body. Fluid limitation is needed when swelling appears and how much water is needed depends on patients’ specific illness condition.
Foamy urine is another visible symptom of FSGS. Foamy urine is the clinical manifestation of proteinuria; and for patients who are experiencing foamy urine associated FSGS, they need to adjust their protein intake, so as to avoid increasing kidney burden. Besides, about 60% of the protein ingested by them should be high quality protein which can be found in fish, lean meat, egg white and milk.
FSGS patients may also feel dizziness when their blood pressure is elevated. High blood pressure refers to the high impact of blood on blood vessels. It can be caused by kidney disease, including FSGS, directly. Although high blood pressure occurs as a symptom of FSGS in many cases, if not treated well, it will accelerate FSGS to kidney failure stage. Therefore, if FSGS patients feel dizzy, they should be alert about their blood pressure.
Blood urine appears when excess red blood cells leak into urine from kidney. In normal condition, blood flow into kidney and during this process, wastes and nutrition are separate. However, for FSGS patients, their glomeruli have been injured. Damaged glomerular filtration membrane fails to function properly. Under such a condition, red blood cells leak into urine, causing blood urine.
Becoming tiredness easily is another common sign among FSGS patients. This symptom becomes especially serious with the progression of illness. For FSGS patients, tiredness or fatigue occurs easily when renal anemia is caused. Therefore, preventing renal anemia is very important for preventing tiredness.
