Primary FSGS in Adults

Primary FSGS in AdultsFSGS can be primary or secondary in adult. Secondary FSGS refers to focal segmental glomerulosclerosis that occurs due to some other illnesses, drugs or toxins. By treating primary causes, secondary FSGS can be controlled well; but for primary FSGS, it is different.

Primary FSGS refers to focal segmental glomerulosclerosis that is based on other illnesses or possible causes. It usually appears as Nephrotic Syndrome which is marked by massive protein in urine, severe fluid retention, hyperlipemia and low protein in blood. It is a cause of Nephrotic Syndrome in children and adolescents, and also an important cause of kidney failure in adult.

For adults of primary FSGS, what they need to do include:

1. Tight control of proteinuria

Proteinuria is a common clinical manifestation of kidney problem, including primary FSGS. Due to severe protein leakage, plasma osmotic pressure decreases. Under such a condition, fluid will ooze into surround tissues, leading to fluid retention. Besides, as large amounts of protein get into urine, protein in blood decreases quickly and this also lead to elevation of lipid in blood. Therefore, tight control of proteinuria is very important for patients to primary FSGS.

2. Protection of residual kidney tissues

Primary FSGS progresses gradually as more and more kidney tissues are injured. Protecting residual kidney tissues is the basic way to prevent further kidney damages. When further kidney damages are avoided, progression of primary FSGS is stopped effectively.

3. Repairing of kidney damages

In primary FSGS, protein leak into urine due to damages on glomerular filtration membrane. Glomerular filtration membrane filters blood and keeps protein in blood through mechanism barrier and charge barrier. For adults with primary FSGS, only when damaged glomerular filtration membrane is repaired, can kidney function be improved successfully.
