How to Take Care of An FSGS Patient

How to Take Care of An FSGS PatientFocal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a kidney disease that can lead to the scarring of the glomeruli. As long as the glomeruli are scarred, no treatment can revive them, so this disease is very severe. If you are a family member of an FSGS patient, do you know how to take care of him/her? Here is a brief introduction. Hope it can help you.

Take care of their diet

FSGS patients can not eat whatever they like, because improper diet worsens workload of kidneys and speeds up kidney failure. For FSGS patients, they should limit the intake of protein if they have proteinuria or their kidney function is impaired. If they have edema or high blood pressure, they should restrict sodium intake. What they can eat mainly depends on their medical condition.

Take care of their health life

Besides diet, you should encourage them to do some exercise regularly if their state of illness is stabilized, but do not let them be over tired. Help them give up some unhealthy lifestyle, such as smoking, drinking alcohol, staying up, etc. Some FSGS patients may feel depressed frequently, you should keep them positive rather than negative.

Take care of their treatment

You should pay attention whether the medicine they eat takes effect or not. If those medicines are ineffective, change them as early as possible in case that they delay the disease. Because FSGS is a kind of CKD, so you had better choose some natural treatment for FSGS to reduce side effects. In our hospital, we often recommend Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to FSGS patients. In TCM, there are both external therapies and oral Chinese medicine. They can help patients set up a good blood environment to help kidney self-healing so as to regain their ability.
