Is Memory Loss Associated with My FSGS

Is Memory Loss Associated with My FSGSIs memory loss associated with my FSGS? Some patients find that their memory is weakened with the progression of kidney disease. In the following, let’s have a look at what causes memory loss for FSGS patients and its treatment.


FSGS impairs your kidney function so as to affect their secretion of EPO. EPO is a necessity to make red blood cells. And red blood cells are responsible for transporting oxygen to all the parts of body. When the amount of red blood cells decreases, less oxygen is transported. Your memory is harmed when the amount of oxygen that gets to the brain is reduced.

-Side effects of medications

FSGS patients have to eat a variety of medications to control the symptoms, but those medicines have many side effects if used for a long-term. They may interfere with or cause loss of memory.

-Sleep deprivation

The damaged kidneys can not remove waste from the blood. Those wastes cause many problems, such as muscle cramp, restless leg syndrome, etc. They may affect your sleeping quality. And then you will feel very tired in the day. This interferes with the ability to consolidate and retrieve information.

-Nutritional deficiency

FSGS patients are required to restrict food intake. High quality proteins and fats are important to proper brain function. But because of proteinuria and hyperlipemia, you have to limit the intake of proteins and fat.

In addition, smoking and alcohol, depression, stress, stroke and so on are all associated with memory loss.

Treatment for memory loss depends on the cause. But the root cause is the damaged kidneys. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, there are many therapies to help you, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, biotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, etc. They can detoxify the blood and remove stasis to set up a good blood environment. After a period of treatment, your damaged kidneys regain their ability.

Is memory loss associated with my FSGS? Yes. Therefore, you should receive treatment as early as possible to control FSGS. For more information, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
