If FSGS is not controlled effectively, creatinine level becomes very higher than normal volume and edema can occur. So if I have edema and creatinine 7.8, what should I do? In view of this question, we
Treatment for FSGS with High Creatinine 7.8 And Edemawill give you an satisfied answer.

How are high creatinine and edema caused by FSGS?

It is very important for us to know the causes of high creatinine and edema in FSGS.

Creatinine level

The normal range of creatinine level is 0.5-1.2 mg/dL. By contrast, creatinine 7.8 is much higher. Creatine is produced during muscle metabolism, and it is a waste which is removed from body by kidney. Fro patients with FSGS, there is something wrong with kidney, and kidney function decreases. Thus, creatinine can’t be excreted, leading to high creatinine level in body.


In the same way, due to declined kidney function in FSGS, fluids in body can’t be removed, causing fluids buildup in body. Large quantities of fluids lead to edema. Besides, FSGS can cause proteinuria. So if much protein flow away in the urine, plasma osmotic pressure will decline. Thus, swelling can appear.

How to treat high creatinine 7.8 and edema in FSGS?


Patients with FSGS should have a low protein diet. Because creatinine is found to mostly exist in rich protein food, for example meat. However, they can have more intake of high quality protein food such as fish, milk. High quality protein can produce few wastes and supply essential amino acid. And they should have a low salt diet. Because high blood pressure is a common complication of FSGS. High blood pressure does harm to kidney function, leading to more severe edema and high creatinine level. Finally, due to edema, they should limit water or fluids.

2. Exercise

Taking regular exercise can be beneficial to patients with FSGS. Jogging, walking and swimming are good choices.

3. Treatment

Patients with FSGS should recover kidney function to alleviate edema and high creatinine level. Chinese medicines are very effective to recover kidney function and repair kidney damage. Although it takes a long time that Chinese medicines show effective results on FSGS, there are almost no side effects with Chinese medicines and patients with FSGS can get treated effectively.

In this way, creatinine and fluids can be excreted effectively by kidney. Consequently, edema is alleviated and creatinine level declines.
