FSGS: Urinary Protein Increases With A Cold? How to Deal with A Cold

FSGS: Urinary Protein Increases With A Cold? How to Deal with A ColdFor many people, catching a cold is a minor illness. No matter you take medicine or not, it will be cured after about one week. But for FSGS patients, it's not that easy. It may induce relapse, aggravation, hematuria, increased proteinuria and so on to impair renal function.

So why can cold affect kidney function? And what to do for FSGS patients who catch a cold?

Why can cold affect the progression of FSGS?

1. Colds cause large amounts of immune complex to deposit on kidneys.

FSGS itself is an immune disease, and when a cold occurs in the human body, immune cells will wrap these foreign bacteria and viruses, forming immune complexes. With blood circulation, these immune complexes go into kidneys and deposit, causing the aggravation and recurrence of FSGS.

2. Improper use of medicine after a cold

If you do not know how to use the medicine clearly, it may also cause drug damage to kidneys so as to affect the safety of the kidneys.

For example, common cold drugs such as acetaminophen, indomethacin, diclofenac, ibuprofen, etc.

FSGS patients are often affected by colds due to their low immunity. If they catch a cold frequently, they will take more medicine. Most medicine is metabolized by kidneys. It may put extra stress on kidneys.

3. Lack of water causes the kidneys to fail to excrete metabolic waste properly

When people catch a cold, due to fever, increased sleep and other conditions, the loss of bodily fluids will increase. If not replenished in time, the body will become dehydrated. When the kidneys don't have enough water to flush out the metabolic wastes, toxic levels in body will rise and threaten your health.

What to do for FSGS patients when catching a cold?

For FSGS patients, care should be taken on medication after catching a cold. It is better for you to choose Chinese patent medicine treatment. For example, common cold due to wind-cold (severe cold, mild fever, head and body pain and runny nose) can be treated with cold medicine granules and cold soft capsule. Wind-heat type common cold (heavy fever, mild cold, sore throat and cough) can choose yinqiaojiedu honeyed pills, mulberry chrysanthemum cold tablets; Heat and humidity cold (heat, sweat, slight evil cold, heavy sensation of head) can choose huoxiang zhengqi capsule, baoji oral liquid and other drugs.

If you don't know what kind of medicine you should take, it is advised to consult a doctor in a regular hospital and use it with the help of a doctor. If you still have any questions on FSGS treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
