Renal Anemia and Edema in FSGS Patients

Are you suffering from the anemia problem? Do you know what does that mean? Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a kidney disease that can lead to glomerulosclerosis, featured with the scar on the kidney tissues. Anemia is one of the common symptoms of FSGS patients.

Anemia in FSGS:

The pathogenic mechanism of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and aplastic anemia are associated with immunologic events which lead to glomerular cell injury or hematopoietic cell destruction. If you are a FSGS patient, it is natural that there is much damage on your kidney function.

Some of the proposed pathogenic mechanisms include intrinsic defects of hematopoietic stem cells, defects in the marrow microenvironment, and abnormal humoral or cellular immune control of hematopoiesis. Aplastic anemia is occasionally associated with renal diseases such as, chronic renal failure, chronic glomerulonephritis or nephrotic syndrome. Healthy kidney can produce a hormone called EPO, which can help the bone marrow produce red blood cells. However, if the failed kidney can’t work properly, they will not produce hormone then it will cause anemia. If red blood cells reduce, the body cells can not get enough oxgen supply, then you may feel fatigue easily.

Edema in FSGS:

Swelling in parts of the body, most noticeable around the eyes, hands and feet, that can become painful.

Swelling or edema caused by FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis) is closely related to proteinuria which is also one of the symptoms of FSGS patients. Generally speaking, if there is large amount of protein in urine, then your swelling will become more serious. Swelling in parts of the body, most noticeable around the eyes, hands and feet, that can become painful. At this time you need to pay special attention to your disease condition.

Both anemia and edema result from failed kidney function, the key to reduce such kind of symptoms must restore the kidney function and repair the kidney damage. Only if your kidneys can work well, you can achieve a better life. Foe more information about FSGS and its treatments, please let me know. You can contact us online or email us to igacure@gmail.com.
