Can Common Cold Worsen FSGS

Can Common Cold Worsen FSGSFocal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a type of kidney disease, which is difficult to treat. In the daily, we should know what can worsen FSGS and then take preventative treatment. Common cold is a mild illness very common to see in the daily. Can it worsen FSGS?

Common cold may worsen FSGS.

FSGS is associated with immune complexes such as IgM, C1q and C3. When you get common cold, your body will produce a lot of antibodies to fight against the invading virus. During this course, a lot of immune complexes come into being. With blood circulation, they come into the kidneys so as to make kidney inflammation worse. Kidney inflammation can cause glomerulosclerosis.

How to deal with common cold for FSGS patients?

When you get common cold, do not worry. You can take some antibiotics to help you fight against the illness, such as Tylenol. And you should have a careful look at their instructions that whether patients with impaired kidney function can eat it or not.

How to prevent common cold for FSGS patients?

The reason why FSGS patients often get common cold is that their immune system is poor. In the daily, you should do some gentle exercises, supplement vitamin C, have a good rest and keep positive attitude to strengthen your immunity. Besides, you had better use some natural treatment for FSGS rather than steroids and immunosuppressants, because those medications can inhibit your immunity. In China, we often use 4M treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various medicinal soup) to treat FSGS. They can decompose the immune complexes to eliminate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. Besides, they can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing and provide the damaged kidneys with essential nutrients to speed up kidney recovery. What is more, they can make your whole body harmonious and balanced to help you fight against the disease so as to prevent common cold.
