Can FSGS Affect Bones

Can FSGS Affect BonesFSGS is a kind of kidney disease that can scar your glomeruli. When your kidney function begin to decline, many other systems of your body will be affected, such as cardiovascular system and blood system. Can FSGS affect bones?

FSGS affects bones.

-Imbalance of calcium and phosphorus

Healthy kidneys are responsible for balancing electrolytes, such as phosphorus and calcium in your body. When your kidneys are not working properly, too much phosphorus builds up in your body, which may pull calcium from your bones so as to make your bones weak.

-Vitamin D can not be activated.

Kidney has another function, that is to activate vitamin D to help your body absorb calcium. When your kidney function declines, your body can not absorb enough calcium to make the bones strong so that you have a higher risk of bone disease.

-Side effects of medications

Steroids are the most common used drugs for FSGS patients to reduce protein leakage, but they have many side effects, one of which is bone disease.

How to prevent or treat bone disease for FSGS patients?

-Control the intake of phosphorus

Some foods are very high in phosphorus, such as nuts, cheese, fish, bean and so on, so you had better limit or avoid those high-phosphorus foods.

-Take phosphate binder

Taking phosphate binder with food together helps your body absorb less phosphorus.

-You can also supplement moderate vitamin D or do some exercise to strengthen your bones.

-Restore kidney function

Bone disease results from kidney function impairment, so we need to repair the damaged kidneys and restore kidney function. Comprehensive treatment consisted of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang and decoction can improve blood circulation, eliminate kidney inflammation and stop kidney fibrosis so as to help your kidneys recover. When your kidneys regain their ability, you won’t worry about bone disease.
