What to Do with Pedal Edema for FSGS Patients

Edema is a common symptom of FSGS. In the early stage of FSGS, it may only appear in the your face or eyelid in the morning and it disappears in the afternoon. With the development of FSGS, edema will become more and more severe so that it spreads to your feet or even your whole body. What to do with pedal edema for FSGS patients?

How does FSGS cause pedal edema?

FSGS scars your glomeruli so that massive protein spills out of the blood vessels, leading to hypoproteinemia. This can decrease plasma colloid osmotic pressure, which in turn affects the reabsorption of fluid in the tissues, leading to edema. Due to gravity, fluid flows to your lower limbs and feet, leading to pedal edema.

Besides, due to kidney function impairment, sodium and water retain in your body, leading to edema.

Ways to help you alleviate pedal edema with FSGS

-In diet, you should limit the intake of salt and fluid.

-Water pills (diuretics) can also be used to flush out the excessive fluid to alleviate swelling, lower blood pressure and reduce the burden on heart.

-It is necessary for you to reduce proteinuria and supplement plasma proteins.

-To bring all symptoms under control is not our goal. Our goal is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. For FSGS patients, we recommend 4M treatment plus biotherapy. 4M treatment (Mai Kang Composition, Medicated Bath, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and various Medicinal Soup) can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. Biotherapy can help you rebuild the kidney structure and restore your kidney function to maximum. When your kidney function improves, its associated symptoms won’t come back any more.
