2014-02-14 03:02

Fatigue Due to FSGS: How to Improve ItFSGS is short for focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. With FSGS, one of the symptoms you have may be fatigue. How to improve it? Before answering this question, let’s see what causes fatigue for FSGS patients. It is helpful for us to suit the remedy to the case.

Causes of fatigue

FSGS refers to scarring of the glomeruli. The glomeruli filter the blood as it passes through the kidneys. When they are damaged, wastes and toxins build up in the blood, which will shorten the lifespan of red blood cells. On the other hand, the damaged kidney can not release enough erythropoietin, which affects the generation of red blood cells. Red blood cells is responsible for transporting oxygen to every part of body. If your body can not get enough oxygen, you will feel tired.

FSGS may affect your sleeping quality. Not having enough rest makes you feel tired as well. At the same time, following an improper diet may also contribute to your feeling of fatigue.

Treatment for fatigue

According to the different causes, there are different treatments:

-If it is caused by anemia, you may supplement erythropoietin or iron element.

-If caused by poor sleeping quality, you should find the underlying causes and then take measures to improve it.

-If caused by improper diet, you had better consult a dietitian and then make a personalized diet plan for you.

-Regular exercise is also helpful for improving fatigue.

-Improving kidney function is also a way to help you get rid of fatigue. Some Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies, such as hot compress therapy, medicated bath, and enema therapy, are effective in treating kidney disease.

Fatigue is just one of the symptoms of FSGS. You have to attach importance to other symptoms as well, for leaving uncontrolled, FSGS can lead to kidney failure.
