Why FSGS Patients Often Have Foamy Urine

Why FSGS Patients Often Have Foamy UrineUnder normal circumstance, urine is clear and light-colored. When it becomes foamy, it is considered a warning sign for probable kidney disease. Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a disease that can impair kidney function. It is not uncommon for FSGS patients to find their urine foamy when they pee. Why FSGS patients often have foamy urine?

Causes of foamy urine for FSGS patients

Kidney is a blood purification organ. When blood flows through kidneys, waste products and excess fluid are filtered out, while the useful substance such as protein are retained in the body. FSGS is a kidney disorder usually associated with the deposition of immune complexes. Immune complexes can cause kidney inflammation, which can increase or block the filtration pores of glomerular basement membrane, impair the charge barrier and increase the permeability of kidney so that protein and red blood cells leak through the kidneys, leading to proteinuria and hematuria. Protein can make urine foamy.

How to treat foamy urine for FSGS patients?

Conventional treatment for foamy urine is to use steroids and other immunosuppressants to inhibit kidney inflammation, block the pores of kidney and decrease the permeability of capillaries so as to reduce protein leakage. But those medications can only be used for short-term, because they have many side effects. In long-term, you had better choose some natural treatment. Here we recommend Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment to you. In TCM, there are many therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various medicinal soup. They can decompose the immune complexes in the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. Besides, they can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. With the improvement of kidney function, protein in urine will gradually disappear.
