How Does FSGS Cause Bone Problems

How Does FSGS Cause Bone ProblemsSome patients with FSGS suffer from bone problems, and they want to know if their bone problems are related to FSGS. Although bone problems are not a very common symptom of FSGS, bone problems can be caused by FSGS. Here we will explain the reason for you, hoping it is helpful.

How are bone problems caused by FSGS?

Before this question, let’s understand FSGS. FSGS describes that scar tissues develops in glomeruli, which causes glomeruli damage. Thus, kidney is impaired and kidney function decreases. Due to decline of kidney function, many wastes and fluids build up in body,including deposition of phosphorus. Much phosphorus stack in the blood, causing high PTH and vitamin D deficiency. High PTH can affect bones, causing bone problems. Vitamin D is very necessary for bones, because vitamin D can help body absorb calcium from foods. Thus, if vitamin D is inadequate, bone problems are prone to occurring. Besides, levels of calcium and phosphorus are kept balanced in body. Thus, calcium in bones will be absorbed into blood to maintain the balance. However, as is known to all, calcium is very essential for bones. If bones are short of calcium, bones will be weak and bone problems can be caused.

In addition, patients with FSGS need to take some medicines to treat FSGS. Some medicines for FSGS may have side effects on bones, which can lead to bone problems. Corticosteroids like prednisone are very common medicines for FSGS to lead to bone problems.

What should patients with FSGS do to treat bone problems?

Bone problems cause a lot of troubles for patients with FSGS. Thus, they need to pay attention to bone problems. In general, they can take medicines for bone problems, especially medicines for calcium supplement. The fundamental cause is decreased kidney function. Patients with FSGS can get treated by Chinese medicines. Chinese medicines have good properties of recovery of kidney function and restoration of kidney damage. Besides, Chinese medicines have few side effects on patients with FSGS.

Here is our introduction for you. Apart from bone problems, patients with FSGS can have many symptoms such as blood in the urine, swelling, fatigue, vomiting and nausea. These symptoms are harmful for patients with FSGS, which should draw their attention.
