But for kidney patients, they are usually asked to give up alcohol. Can alcohol consumption exacerbate FSGS? After reading this article, you will find the answer.

Alcohol consumption affects nitrogen balance in the body.

Drinking alcohol can increase protein metabolism in the body so as to increase blood urea nitrogen. This can add the workload of kidneys and speed up kidney failure.

Alcohol consumption decreases blood flow in the kidneys.

FSGS scars your kidneys gradually so that waste products build up in the blood. This slows down blood flow. Substance in the blood may deposit in the blood vessels, leading to stasis so as to reduce blood flow into the kidneys. Because of ischemia and anoxia, your kidneys will be damaged further.

Alcohol consumption may cause malnutrition.

Alcohol consumption can give rise to gastrointestinal disorder so as to affect your body to absorb nutrients, leading to malnutrition or poor appetite. Malnutrition and poor appetite can make your FSGS become worse.

Alcohol consumption can also worsen high blood pressure, high cholesterol level and increase your risk of heart disease.
