Does FSGS Affect Me to Play Football

Question: I have FSGS and I am 17 years old. I have been diagnosed with it for about 1 month. I take medicines to treat it for my blood pressure and kidneys and stomach and heart. My blood test for final treatment of medicine is Wednesday, which should make me feel normal again. I was just looking to see how it will affect if I can play football or not.

Does FSGS Affect Me to Play FootballAnswer: FSGS patients can take part in some exercises, such as walking and jogging, but it is not recommended to play football or do some other strenuous exercises even if you feel you are normal now.

First of all, let’s have a look at what is FSGS.

When your immunity becomes low, bacteria and virus enter into body easily, which can combine with antibodies to make immune complexes. With blood circulation, they come into your kidneys. FSGS is associated with immune complexes depositing in the glomeruli. Those immune complexes cause kidney inflammation in the early stage. If you can not eliminate kidney inflammation timely, it can make your glomeruli scarred.

Football may worsen your FSGS.

When you play football, you may feel very tired or sweat a lot. In such case, bacteria and virus invade into body easily so as to increase the production of immune complexes. When immune complexes deposit in the kidneys again, kidney inflammation flares up again. If you use the same medication to treat FSGS, it is difficult for you to achieve the similar therapeutic effect. Besides, football can worsen proteinuria.

How to stabilize FSGS?

If you really want to recover from FSGS, you should not only inhibit kidney inflammation, but also cleanse those immune complexes from the kidneys. Immunotherapy can cleanse the immune complexes and inflammatory chemicals from the blood to reduce immune complexes deposition. It can also increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so that even if there are immune complexes, they do not cause kidney inflammation. After a period of treatment, your kidney function will be improved.

Does FSGS affect you to play football? All in all, It is good for you to do some exercises, but because of FSGS, you had better avoid those strenuous exercise and do some gentle exercise instead. For more information about FSGS, please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.
