What Symptoms Appear In Children with FSGS

2013-12-28 16:58

What Symptoms Appear In Children with FSGSWhat symptoms appear in children with FSGS? FSGS is one leading cause of childhood Nephrotic Syndrome. With this kidney disorder, children’s kidneys may be unable to filter out extra fluid and waste products. Then, many symptoms and discomforts will appear to affect these children’s health.

Here, you can learn about symptoms that appear in children with FSGS.

1. Proteinuria

It is reported that 2/3 of children with FSGS have large amounts of protein in urine. This is because FSGS is one condition in which scarring appears in glomeruli, while glomeruli have barrier function. Once the filtration barrier is damaged, a lot of protein will leak from the blood into urine.

2. Swelling

Fluid and sodium retention is usually one common cause of swelling, when kidneys can’t remove out extra fluid and sodium out of the body. The other cause is heavy loss of protein in urine, because this can cause low plasma osmotic pressure in blood resulting in fluid retention in loose tissues.

3. Hematuria

Nearly 50% of children with FSGS have hematuria, especially microscopic hematuria. If left alone, hematuria may lead to renal anemia and infection. Therefore, if your child has hematuria, let him or her drink more water and take some antibiotics, if necessary.

4. High blood pressure

It is uncommon that FSGS children are tested out high blood pressure. If they have high blood pressure, it is more likely to indicate bad prognosis of FSGS. The reason is that high blood pressure can accelerate the rate of FSGS aggravating to kidney failure.

There are many other symptoms seen commonly in children with FSGS. No matter what symptoms your child has, tell your doctor or the doctor online timely. Therefore, they can give you some treatment or medication suggestions for aggravating his or her condition.
