Why I Feel Very Tired with FSGS

Why I Feel Very Tired with FSGSFSGS patients often say that they are always extremely tired, achy, and have no motivation, which may make them miss lots of work and affect the quality of life. “Why I feel very tired with FSGS?” If you want to know the answer, go on reading.

The fatigue may be associated with anemia.

When FSGS makes your kidney function decline, the kidneys can not secrete enough erythropoietin to stimulate bone marrows to form red blood cells. As a result, there are not enough red blood cells to transport oxygen to the muscles and then you may feel tired easily. The more advanced the kidney disease is, the more tired you will feel.

Solution: You should supplement iron or inject erythropoietin to improve anemia.

The fatigue may be associated with protein leakage.

When a lot of protein leaks from the body, it may make you feel tired as well, because the body is struggling to make more protein to keep up with the amount you lost.

Solution: You should control the proteinuria. The most common used drugs may be steroids and immunosuppressants. But they have many side effects, such as weight gain and increased appetite.

The fatigue may be associated with reduced immune system.

The long-term used steroids and immunosuppressants can reduce immune system, which can expose you to various disease and make you feel tired.

Solution: Doing exercise regularly and supplementing vitamin C are helpful for you to boost immune system.

Natural therapies to help you control FSGS

If you want to get rid of the side effects of steroids and immunosuppressants, you should choose some natural therapies. After research, we find that the combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine can make up the respective shortcomings. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), there are Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang, decoction, etc. They can restrain kidney inflammation, block blood clotting, dilate blood vessels and degrade extracellular matrix. All in all, they can protect the kidneys very well and stop progression. And then you will feel energetic. For more information, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
