Why Do My Bone Hurt with FSGS

Why Do My Bone Hurt with FSGSWhy do my bone hurt with FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis)? Though less common, bone problem like bone pain, bone weakness and bone fracture is also a concern for FSGS patients. Here in this article we will introduce how FSGS affect our bone and how to prevent this problem well.

Why do bone hurt with FSGS?

Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis is a problem about kidney and causes no direct influence on one in early stage. However, this does not mean there is no link between FSGS and bone. For FSGS patients, they may experience bone problems in the following cases:

1. High phosphorus level in blood

Elevation of phosphorus level in blood is a common medical manifestation of FSGS, as kidney is responsible for maintaining phosphorus balance. When the content of phosphorus in blood reaches to a very high level, disturbance of calcium metabolism appears, which can cause bone to hurt directly.

2. Deficiency of vitamin D

With FSGS, patients must be very careful about their daily diet and try to avoid foods that may cause bad influence on kidney. For this reason, they need to exclude many foods that are high in vitamin D from their table. Long-term diet limitation will lead to deficiency of vitamin D, which can cause bone problem too.

How to prevent bone problem with FSGS?

FSGS is a common kidney problem and also a common cause of kidney failure. Once being diagnosed with FSGS, patients need to know well about how to prevent bone problem effectively.

Methods to prevent bone problem with FSGS go as follow:

1. Try to control phosphorus level into normal range by eating no high phosphorus foods. If lab tests report phosphorus level in blood is higher than the reference value, phosphate binder can be helpful.

2. Try to eat more high calcium foods like low-fat milk, broccoli and Chinese cabbage if possible. Remember to control the amount and avoid foods that are harmful for kidney.

3. Remember to arrange some high vitamin D foods, so as to avoid vitamin D deficiency.

4. Treat FSGS foundamentally and at least stop its progression. Since impaired kidney function is the root cause of renal bone disease in many FSGS cases, stopping illness progression is the essential way to prevent bone problems.

Renal bone disease is not the number one casue of death among FSGS patients, but if not controlled or treated well, it will cause many other health tissues. Therefore, please be careful about this problem if you are a FSGS patients and try to take some measures to prevent it.
