Proteinuria is a common symptom of FSGS. It results from the damage to the charge barrier in glomerular basement membrane. Protein which should be held in the body splits out of the body.


Steroids can inhibit kidney inflammation so as to reduce proteinuria. But long term-use of these medicine cause many symptoms, such as unusual weight gain, weakness, trouble sleeping, swelling hands, etc.
