What Causes Loss of Appetite and Throwing up in FSGS

2012-09-20 08:19

What Causes Loss of Appetite and Throwing up in FSGSFocal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis, or FSGS, is a kind of glomerular disease that can lead to permanent renal disease in children and adults. This disorder affects kidney function by attacking the glomeruli, the tiny filtering units of the kidneys. People affected by FSGS often experience loss of appetite and throwing up. What are the causes?

Causes of loss of appetite and throwing up in FSGS

Normally, kidneys filter metabolic waste products and extra fluids from the blood, which are then voided in the urine. Once affected by FSGS, the kidneys are mostly damaged so that they fail to function normally. As a result, excessive high levels of fluid and wastes will accumulate in the body, leading to elevated level of urea nitrogen in the blood.

Meanwhile, urease in the intestinal tract will break down blood urea nitrogen into ammonia, which can stimulate the gastrointestinal mucosa, causing loss of appetite and throwing up.

In addition to decline of kidney damage, there are also other factors that can lead to loss of appetite and throwing up in FSGS. They are emotional stress, depression, medications (used for treating migraines, high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, cancer, etc), and respiratory infections, etc.

Loss of appetite and throwing up, if temporary (such as for a day or two) is mostly harmless, and nothing to be worried about. However, if these symptoms persist for a longer period of time, serious health problems can be caused. So, people with FSGS are suggested to find a comprehensive therapy which can not only relive these symptoms but also treat the disease effectively.
