Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis, or FSGS, is a type of autoimmune disease that affects the kidney function by attacking the glomeruli, the tiny units within the kidney where blood is cleaned. Common symptoms of this disease include fatigue, nausea, headache, foamy urine, weight gain, and loss of appetite. This text mainly talks about the causes of fatigue in FSGS.
Because the kidneys are responsible for removing waste products from the
bloodstream, a decline in kidney function will result in feelings of
sluggishness and constant unexplained fatigue. Some patients also feel weakness
throughout their body and have trouble sleeping or concentrating.
Anemia is the most common cause of fatigue in FSGS kidney disease. When the
kidneys are impaired, waste products or uremic toxins will build up in the blood
stream. Moreover, healthy kidneys can also secrete several important hormones,
one of which is called erythropoietin (EPO). This hormone can help the bone
marrow make new red blood cells. As kidney function declines, they kidneys are
not able to release sufficient EPO, leading to fewer red blood cells count, or
anemia. Red blood cells contain a protein known as haemoglobin, which can
transport oxygen to all the parts of the body. Without enough supply of oxygen,
the cells in the body have to work harder, patients with FSGS will feel tired
all of time.
Another common cause of fatigue in FSGS may be lack of hydration. The energy
levels are directly associated with the kidneys' ability to process liquids and
foods in the body. When the body runs low on water, it may also run low on
The above is a general introduction of the reasons of fatigue in FSGS.
Patients are suggested to talk with the doctor and find the specific causes so
that we can take corresponding treatment to eliminate the underlying cause.
In order to remit the fatigue, patients should choose an effective therapy
for FSGS as soon as possible. Chinese herbs can help you. Micro-Chinese medicine
Osmotherapy is the evolution of traditional Chinese herbs therapy. Through this
therapy, most useful ingredients of Chinese herbs can be permeated into the
kidney lesion through skin. So the Chinese herbs can be full used to treat
Besides, micro-Chinese medicine Osmotherapy can dilate the blood vessels and
accelerate the microcirculation. In this way, more blood and oxygen can be
provided into kidney tissues in order to reduce renal inflammation. Furthermore,
Chinese medicine can regulate people’s immunity to fight against the factors
which arouse FSGS.
Immunotherapy therapyis every effective in repair the harden tissues. In
fact, once the glomeruli are hardened or dead, no drug can save them. However,
stem Immunotherapycan provide healthy cells for kidney to replace the harden
ones. Provided many kidney tissues are repaired, kidney function will recover
and people’s fatigue will be removed.
In order to remove the fatigue, FSGS should be treated with a comprehensive
therapeutic schedule. You can consult the experts online for therapy suitable
