Is Leg Cramp A Symptom Of FSGS Patient

Is Leg Cramp A Symptom Of FSGS PatientSometimes in our daily life, some FSGS patients find that they have slight or severe leg cramp but others don’t have. From this, many people doubt that is leg cramp a symptom of FSGS patients and how to alleviate it effectively. After years of studies, the explanation are showed just as the following article.

Is leg cramp a symptom of FSGS patients?

Firstly, we must tell you the answer is yes but for some FSGS patients whose illness condition exists in early stage, leg cramp is not particularly evident as it is always easily ignored by many people. Then, let’s learn why FSGS can cause leg cramp together. The main reasons are as follow:

1. High level of potassium

Potassium is a major electrolyte that affects the excitability of nerve and muscle cells. High levels of potassium in blood will cause increased activity of the cells, finally, cramps in leg are formed.

2. Low blood calcium

As we all know calcium and phosphorus, both influence each other. High blood phosphorus level caused by abnormal kidney function can lower the calcium levels in blood for FSGS patients. While low blood calcium level can cause muscle irritability, which results in muscle cramping and patients will always describe a feeling of pins and needles in their extremities.

Compared with the reasons, patients must want to know the treatment urgently.

1. Keep a healthy diet plan and try to avoid the foods of high potassium, phosphorus in your daily life.

2. Sometimes, calcium supplement is necessary.

3. Take medicines under the guidance of your doctors.

4. Find a proper treatment that suits for you very well. Some natural methods like hot compress therapy, cycle therapy, oral Chinese medicine therapy, etc are highly suggested to repair damaged and improve kidney function from the root.
