Symptoms of FSGS Kidney DiseaseFSGS (focal segmental glomerulosclerosis) is a kidney disorder in which glomeruli become inflamed and scarred. And it is a common type of Nephritic Syndrome in both adults and children. The diseased glomeruli and kidneys fail to function adequately and numerous symptoms and complications will occur at the same time.

Nephrotic Syndrome

The primary clinical symptom is nephrotic syndrome which presents clinical features of “three high, one low”. That is large amounts of proteinuria, severe swelling, hyperlipidemia and hypoproteinemia. About two-thirds patients have a large amount of proteinuria (more than 3.5g/d) and severe swelling, and about 50% or above patients have hematuresis (microscopic hematuria). But what I want to emphasize is this: most patients’ proteinuria is non-selective, and if this type of proteinuria lasts for a long time, it is likely to develop into chronic renal failure.

Hypertension

High blood pressure is always associated with FSGS, but compared with adults, children have lower incidence to develop high blood pressure. Besides, hypertension has obviously bad effect on kidney function.

Impairment of renal tubules

Renal tubules have functions of reabsorption, secretion and excretion. Ischemia, infection and poison all can lead to damage of renal tubular epithelial cells and kidney failure can be induced by them.

Other symptoms

If you are diagnosed with FSGS, hormone insensitivity and upper respiratory tract infection or allergic reactions before the onset of FSGS can appear. All in all, the occurrence of these symptoms come from the diseased kidney. Meanwhile, diseased kidneys also induce acture kidney failure, thrombus and infection.

Those symptoms of FSGS are due to renal function decline, therefore, to control illness condition fundamentally and completely, patients should have an effective treatment to restore the impaired glomeruli and reverse kidney damages. Here we have many natural methods which have made a great progress in managing kidney diseases, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Hot Compress Therapy, Medicated Bath and so on.
