Why do People Feel Fatigue in FSGS

Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a type of autoimmune disease that affects the kidney function by attacking the glomeruli, the tiny units within the kidney where blood is cleaned. Common symptoms of FSGS include fatigue, nausea, headache, foamy urine, weight gain, and loss of appetite. Today I will tell you why people feel fatigue in FSGS?

As we know that the kidneys are responsible for removing waste products from the bloodstream, a decline in kidney function will result in feelings of sluggishness and constant unexplained fatigue. Some patients also feel weakness throughout their body and have trouble sleeping or concentrating. Anemia is the most common cause of fatigue in FSGS kidney disease. When the kidneys are damaged, waste products will build up in the blood stream. Moreover, healthy kidneys can also secrete several important hormones, one of which is called erythropoietin (EPO). This hormone can help the bone marrow make new red blood cells. As kidney function declines, they kidneys are not able to release sufficient EPO, leading to fewer red blood cells count, or anemia. Red blood cells contain a protein known as haemoglobin, which can transport oxygen to all the parts of the body. Without enough supply of oxygen, the cells in the body have to work harder, patients with FSGS will feel tired all of time.

Another common cause of fatigue in FSGS may be lack of hydration. The energy levels are directly associated with the kidneys′ ability to process liquids and foods in the body. When the body runs low on water, it may also run low on energy.

In order to get rid of fatigue, patients should choose an effective therapy for FSGS. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a brand-new therapy which is based on traditional Chinese herbal medicines dating back thousands of years ago.
