Dizziness may be a clinical manifestation of anemia.

Anemia often goes together with kidney disease, because as long as your kidneys are damaged, they can not make enough erythropoietin to stimulate bone marrows to make red blood cells. When there are not enough red blood cells to transport oxygen to your brain, it is likely for you to have dizziness. In such case, you should supplement EPO and iron tablets to improve anemia.

Dizziness may be a result of high blood pressure.

High blood pressure is a common symptom of FSGS, which is known as silent killer, because it seldom causes symptoms. But with extremely high blood pressure, you may have some body malaise, such as dizziness. If so, you should take medications such as ACEI, ARBs, diuretics and so on to lower blood pressure. If they are not effective enough, you can take Interventional Therapy to dilate blood vessels so as to lower blood pressure.
