Does FSGS Cause Proteinuria

Does FSGS Cause ProteinuriaFocal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a kind of kidney disorder, which can cause many symptoms, such as swelling and back pain. Does FSGS cause proteinuria? Yes, it does. Go on reading to learn more information.

How does FSGS cause proteinuria?

FSGS is usually associated with immune complexes such as IgM, C3 and C1q depositing in the glomeruli. They launch inflammatory reaction in the kidneys. Inflammation can increase the permeability of basement membrane and impair the charge barrier so that protein which should be retained in the body leaks into urine, leading to proteinuria.

How to get rid of proteinuria for FSGS patients?

From the above analysis, we can see that treatment for proteinuria should focus on the following aspects:

-Block kidney inflammation to prevent further glomerular damage.

-Decompose the immune complexes to reduce kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis.

-Reduce the production of immune complexes.

-Reinforce the inherent immune system so that virus and bacteria will not enter into the body easily.

Conventional treatment for FSGS such as steroids and immunosuppressants can help you achieve the first goal. If you want to fulfill all the goals, you may have to take advantage of Chinese medicine. In Chinese medicine, there is 4M treatment, namely Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various medicinal soup and 7 external therapies. They can help you set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing and at the same time provide the damaged kidneys with essential elements to speed up kidney recovery. With the improvement of kidney function, protein in urine will gradually disappear.

Does FSGS cause proteinuria? Yes, it does. FSGS is very severe, so early treatment is needed to prevent further kidney damage. If you still have any other questions about FSGS, please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.
