How to Deal with the Increased Uric Acid Level for FSGS PatientsUric acid is the waste product of purine, a substance found in many foods. Most of it is passed out of body by kidneys. Because some of the glomeruli are sclerosis, they lose their ability to filter waste and excess fluid. As a result, uric acid builds up in the blood. How to deal with the increased uric acid level for FSGS patients?

High uric acid level can cause many problems for your body.

High uric acid level may lead to frequent attacks of gout. It may also increase the risk of developing kidney stones or kidney failure. Moreover, it may cause high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease. Therefore, you had better remove the excess uric acid from body as early as possible.
