Now, this passage will mainly talk about this topic and you are bound to gain some useful information.

Firstly, we should make clear that why leg swelling can happen to people with FSGS.

In most cases, leg swelling occurs in FSGS patients is caused by the two factors: water and sodium retention, a heavy loss of protein in urine. Actually, under normal conditions, our kidneys are able to help not only keep water and sodium balance, but also filter protein in our body. However, unfortunately, for FSGS patients, due to damaged kidney function and glomeruli, they can not finish the above work successfully. Over time, swelling occurs easily as a consequence of water and sodium retention, protein leakage.

To be honest, this kind of swelling is difficult to treat and some patients still have lots of proteinuria though taking the medicine regularly. In that case, the risk for kidney( renal ) failure will be greatly increased.
