Why FSGS Patients Have Malnutrition

Why FSGS Patients Have MalnutritionOn the one hand, as we all known that various nutritions such as protein, calcium, vitamin, glucose, amino acid play an important role in the growth and development of our body. On the other hand, these nutritions are able to supply enough energy in order to maintain body’s normal function, of course, including FSGS patients. Then, why FSGS patients have malnutrition in clinic? Don’t worry, let’s learn together. The reasons can be divided into five parts:

1. Toxins

For FSGS patients, generally speaking, their kidneys fail to remove excessive wastes and toxins as normals, so these toxins may accumulate in any organs in our body. That is to say, if it stores up in the gastrointestinal tract, a variety of nutritions are difficult to absorb and thus malnutrition occurs in FSGS patients.

2. Side effects of dialysis

For serious FSGS patients who are receiving dialysis now or have received before, the side effects of dialysis also can be considered as a reason why FSGS patients have malnutrition. Because in the process of dialysis, it can take away a lot of original proteins and amino acid by mistake which lead to the loss of protein to a large degree.

3. Acidosis

Malnutrition occurs in FSGS patients may contribute to acidosis which can stop albumin synthesis and promote decomposition of protein, amino acid in patients’ body.

4. Inflammatory reaction

Refer to inflammatory reaction, inflammatory factor is a part of this reaction. For FSGS patients, inflammatory factor can decrease the composition of protein and this is why they have malnutrition in clinic.

5. Endocrine disorders

The last reason comes from endocrine disorders in FSGS patients, which can lead to increase composition and metabolism of protein and glucose to them.

In conclusion, malnutrition is very bad to FSGS patients and they should pay more attention to their daily diet. Of course, if you want to get some suggestions about healthy diet, please contact us by emailing us to igacure@gmail.com immediately, we will design a reasonable diet plan just for you.
