Will Pregnancy Affect FSGS?

Focal Segmental Glomerulous Sclerosis (FSGS) is a rare disease that attacks the kidney’s filtering system causing serious scarring. Sclerosis means “Scarring.” There are millions of tiny, microscopic filters in the kidneys called “glomeruli.” They are filters much like a sieve you might find in your kitchen, and they filter the blood, taking out the water-like part that becomes urine and leaving the protein in the blood. If the glomeruli become scarred, then they stop doing a good job filtering the blood and protein starts leaking into the urine instead of staying in the blood. The word “focal” is added because in FSGS, only some of the glomeruli filters become scarred. “Segmental” means that only some sections of the glomerulus becomes scarred, just parts of them.

It commonly happens to children and adults, male and female. Most young people with FSGS want to get pregnant, but they are no sure whether pregnancy will affect their disease.

As we know that FSGS has a great impact on the patients’ pregnancy which also will cause bad effects on the damaged kidneys. First we will present some analysis about that, so you will see whether you can give birth to a baby. When you are in pregnancy, you will feel weak and fatigue all the time. We know that for a FSGS patient, he or she may suffer from the high blood pressure or protein in urine, swelling in the face, legs, feet, and ankles, etc. During the pregnancy your kidneys will perform very harder than ever, as your body needs more nutrition and blood for both the mother and the baby.

What’s more, pregnancy will greatly affect the medicine effect for the patients, because if you are pregnant, you are not recommended any drugs by the doctor for the sake of baby’s safety and health. Then we can see that pregnancy will affect the treatment of FSGS more or less.

From the above we can get a conclusion that if you want to get pregnant you had better treat your kidney disease from the root. You can receive a natural therapy based on traditional Chinese medicine, which has no adverse effects on your body. The therapy can impair the kidney damage and recover the kidney function. For more information about the therapy you can contact us online or email us to igacure@gmail.com.
