Why There Is A rise in Phosphate Level in FSGS

Why There Is A rise in Phosphate Level in FSGSPhosphate is a mineral in the body, which plays an important role in bones, muscles and some other places. Under normal circumstance, phosphate in the blood is 0.8 to 1.4 mmol/L. But among some FSGS patients, especially whose eGFR is less than 40 ml/min, their phosphate increases more or less. Why there is a rise in phosphate level in FSGS? Go on reading to learn more information.

Causes of high phosphate levels in FSGS

FSGS is a kind of kidney disorder which scars the filtration units of your kidneys. As a result, your kidneys are not able to excrete waste products, such as excess phosphate into the urine. And then your phosphate level rises.

Dangers of high phosphate levels for FSGS patients

-High blood phosphate levels may stimulate your skin, leading to skin itch, which makes you feel very uncomfortable.

-The levels of phosphate and calcium in the blood are linked like a seesaw. If one rises, the other falls. A high phosphate level leads to a low calcium level, which in turn means weakens bones.

Treatment for high phosphate level in FSGS

To lower blood phosphate level, you should do the following things.

-Limit the intake of food high in phosphate, such as diary products, nuts and meat.

-Use phosphate binders to reduce phosphate absorption.

-Good quality dialysis is a quick way to lower toxin concentration in the blood.

-To improve kidney function is the fundamental way to lower blood phosphate level. In China, we use 4M treatment (Mai Kang Composition, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath and various Medicinal Soup). This set of treatment can draw out toxins from your body to cleanse the blood. It can also dilate blood vessels and block blood clotting to improve blood circulation in the kidneys. Besides, it can decompose the deposited immune complexes in the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. After a period of treatment, you can regain some kidney function and your phosphate level will decrease as well.

Why there is a rise in phosphate level in FSGS? It results from declined kidney function. If you still have any other question, please leave a message below or send emails to igacure@gmail.com.
