Can You Donate Blood with FSGSWith Focal Segmental Glomerulonephritis (FSGS), you should pay attention to every aspect of life, because improper behavior may worsen your kidney disease. Can you donate blood with FSGS? If you have the similar doubt, go on reading to learn more information.

So far, there is no report to show that FSGS patients can not donate blood, because FSGS is not an infectious disease. Generally speaking, when your FSGS is stabilized and your blood is qualified, you can donate blood. But if you have the following conditions, you had better not.


Anemia often goes together with kidney disease. And the more advanced your kidney disease, the more worse your anemia. Because the damaged kidneys can not secrete enough erythropoietin to make red blood cells. In such case, blood donation may deteriorate your anemia further so as to speed up kidney failure.

-High concentration of toxins in the blood

When your kidney function declines, waste products and toxins build up in the blood. Besides, because of kidney inflammation, there are a lot of inflammatory factors in the blood. In such case, if you donate your polluted blood to others, it may cause damage to the receptors.

In addition, if you have high blood pressure, autoimmune disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Nephrotic Syndrome, kidney function impairment, chronic gastroenteritis and so on, you should not donate blood as well.
