Does FSGS Cause Fatigue

Does FSGS Cause FatigueFocal Segmental Glomerular Sclerosis (FSGS) can cause many symptoms, such as edema, proteinuria, high blood pressure, etc. FSGS patients also complain about fatigue. Does FSGS cause fatigue?

How does FSGS cause fatigue?

FSGS has no direct relation with your fatigue. Fatigue is just one of the symptoms of anemia and anemia is a common symptom of FSGS. When the body senses low oxygen levels, it tells the kidneys to release a hormone called erythropoietin (EPO). This hormone then stimulate your bone marrow to make more red blood cells to transport oxygen. But FSGS makes your kidney function decline, which affects the production of red blood cells. Besides, the damaged kidneys can not filter the wastes, resulting in waste building up in the blood, which can shorten the lifespan of the existing red blood cells. These two factors lead to the decreased amount of red blood cells and then anemia occurs. Because your muscles can not get enough oxygen, you get tired easily. Anemia can develop in the early stage of FSGS and get worse as kidney disease progresses. And then your fatigue will increase.

How to deal with fatigue caused by FSGS?

When you have fatigue, a good rest helps you a lot. When you feel better and your state of illness is stable, you can do some exercise regularly to boost your energy. Besides, you should pay attention to the diet. A balanced nutrition can make you energetic and a renal-friendly diet can help you control symptoms. Of course, medications like EPO and iron supplement are needed if your anemia is very serious. And the most important thing you should do is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function.
