What Are The common symptoms Of FSGSFocal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis(FSGS) is a kidney disease which can lead to glomerulosclerosis. Glomerulosclerosis refers to scarring or hardening of the glomeruli. The damaged glomeruli cannot function properly. Well then, what people will have when their glomeruli is damaged?

Symptoms of Glomerulosclerosis

People with FSGS have no obvious signs or symptoms of the disease unless progressive damage to the kidneys interferes with their normal function. Over time, symptoms present. These include.


The damaged glomeruli can not remove waste fluids from the body, so edema or swelling can be seen in various parts of the body, like eyelids, face, hands, abdomen, legs and feet. Besides, the swelling is painful and patients will have rapid weight gain.

Changed urine

The injured glomeruli makes protein from the blood leak into urine, so foamy or bubbly urine may be seen in FSGS patients, called proteinuria.

What’s more, FSGS patients will also show symptoms that often accompany glomerulosclerosis, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, hypoproteinemia(low blood protein).

Treating the symptoms of FSGS

Treatment is aimed to reducing proteinuria, controlling hypertension, preserving kidney function. For this, the treatment includes diet management and medication treatment.

First, in diet management, patients should reduce salt and fat intake and consume animal protein at less than 1 gram per body weight measured in kilograms. Animal protein is like meats, chicken, fish and eggs.

Second, medication treatment apply diuretics for patients. Diuretics can decrease fluid retention and edema. And for high blood pressure and proteinuria, angiotensin-converting enzyme(ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers(ARBs) is used.

The above are the common symptoms and some treatments for FSGS. When patients show symptoms of FSGS, they should take methods to treat them to slow its progression into renal failure.
