Does FSGS Cause Cold Hands

Does FSGS Cause Cold HandsFocal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a kidney disease that scar glomeruli gradually so as to lead to kidney failure. Not a few FSGS patients suffer from cold hands. Does FSGS cause cold hands?

Cold hands is one of common complaints of FSGS patients.

The reason why you have cold hands is impaired blood circulation. For FSGS patients, it is likely for them to have anemia so that there are not enough red blood cells to transplant nutrients and oxygen to your whole body. Cold hands is one of the clinical manifestation of anemia.

-Because of the impaired kidneys, they can not make enough erythropoietin to stimulate bone marrows to make red blood cells. This is the main reason of anemia.

-Because of long-term protein intake restriction and protein leakage, many patients have hypoproteinemia so that there are not enough protein in the blood to make hemoglobin, worsening anemia.

-The accumulated waste products in the blood shortens the lifespan of red blood cells, leading to anemia.

Ways to help you improve cold hands

To improve cold hands, you should bring anemia under control. EPO injection and iron tablets are the common used medications for anemia. Besides, you can do some gentle exercise to improve blood circulation, which can keep you warm. Medicated Foot Bath, Medicated Full Bath and Steam Therapy are also often used to activate blood circulation and remove stasis. Because anemia is one of complications of kidney damage, it is necessary for you to repair the damaged kidneys and restore kidney function. In China, we often treat FSGS through 4M treatment (Mai Kang Composition, Medicated Foot Bath, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and various Medicinal Soup) and biotherapy. 4M can help you set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing, while biotherapy is to inject stem cells into your body to rebuild the damaged kidneys. After a period of treatment, you can regain some kidney function and its associated symptoms will disappear.

Does FSGS cause cold hands? Yes. If you want to have a better control of FSGS and lead a normal life, you should take treatment as early as possible. For more information, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
