Does Frequent Thirsty and Urination A Sign of Further Scarring in

Does Frequent Thirsty and Urination A Sign of Further Scarring in FSGSQuestion: I have FSGS and recently have become more thirsty and urinating more often then before. Is this a sign of further scarring?

Answer: FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis) is a disease in glomeruli which are in charge of filtering blood and preserving nutrition. Therefore, diagnosis of FSGS is always accompanied with protein leakage and hematuria which refers to the presence of excess red blood cell in urine. In FSGS, the scarring occurs only in some of the glomeruli and with the deterioration of illness, signs like proteinuria and hematuria becomes more serious.

Frequent thirsty and frequent urination are the typical signs of Diabetes which is the leading one cause of kidney failure. You said you have FSGS, so are you a diabetic too? If no, then you can consider if this sign is due to damage of renal tubules.

In our kidney, apart from glomeruli, there are renal tubules which help us reabsorb nutrition and fluids. About 99% of the substances filtered by glomeruli will be reabsorbed and consumped again by our body. When renal tubules are injured and fail to perform reabsorption function, all the fluids filtered by glomeruli will be finally excreted out of our body as urine. Under such a condition, frequent urination and thirsty.

Besides, apart from Diabetes and damage of renal tubules, kidney infection is another possible cause for FSGS patients to experience frequent urination, but it usually does not cause frequent thirsty. The information you provide is limited. Do you have your test report? If yes, you can send to igacure@gmail.com. Our nephrologists will help you analysize it and then reply you with more useful and practical solution about this abnormal sign.
