Is There Anything I Can Do for Edema Associated with FSSG

Is There Anything I Can Do for Edema Associated with FSSG“I have FSGS. I am suffering severe edema. Is there anything I can do for edema associated with FSGS?” Edema is a very common symptom of FSGS. If you have the similar medical condition, the following information will help you a lot.

How does FSGS cause edema?

-Massive proteinuria lead to edema

FSGS is a kidney disease that scars some of your glomeruli. Glomeruli are filters which remove waste from the blood, while retaining the useful substances, such as red blood cells and protein. When glomeruli are sclerosis, protein leaks into the urine. Massive protein comes out of the body so that plasma colloid osmotic pressure decreases. And then fluid goes to the tissue space, leading to edema.

-Kidney function impairment

When your kidney function decreases, water retains in the body and then edema occurs.

How to treat edema associated with FSGS?

The direct way to relieve edema is to take some diuretics, which help remove fluid from your body. If you have a lot of proteinuria, you should control protein leakage first. Steroids and immunosuppressants are the common used drugs. You should also control the intake of protein and choose some high quality protein to eat, such as egg white, lean meat and poultry without skin. In diet, you should pay attention to the intake of salt, because sodium retains water in your body as well.

There are therapies to help you repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang and decoction can help you eliminate kidney inflammation so as to stop proteinuria. They can also cleanse immune complexes and diseased tissues from the glomeruli so as to prevent further damage. Moreover, they improve blood circulation and supplement essential nutrients to speed up kidney recovery.
