Diagnosis of Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis

Time:  2014-01-07 15:47

Diagnosis of Focal Segmental GlomerulosclerosisDiagnosis of Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) needs renal biopsy. But in reality, before doing renal biopsy, FSGS patients need to do blood test and urine test to have an understanding about their kidney condition.

Blood test for FSGS

Blood test is the most basic test for the diagnosis of kidney problem, including FSGS. For FSGS patients, due to impaired kidney function, they run a high risk for anemia, hypoproteinemia and high serum creatinine and so on. With blood test, we can know well if patients are suffering from these problems. If yes, we need to take measures as soon as possible, so as to avoid worsening of illness condition.

Urine test for FSGS

Urine test is also necessary for the diagnosis of FSGS. When kidneys are injured due to FSGS, large amounts of protein and red blood cells will leak into urine and this will cause proteinuria and hematuria directly. With urine test, we can measure the exact amount of protein and red blood cell in urine and thus have a general understanding about the severity of kidney damages.

Renal biopsy for FSGS

Renal biopsy is an indispensable test for the diagnosis of FSGS. It is a medical process in which a small part of kidney tissues is taken out of the body. By analyzing this sample, we can know well about the kidney damages. For instance, we can know clearly which part of kidney is damaged and in what way it is damaged.

FSGS is an illness that causes Nephrotic Syndrome easily, so large amounts of proteins (usually more than 3.5g/d) will be found in some patients' urine. Tight control of proteinuria is very helpful for slowing down illness condition, so a prompt diagnosis is very helpful. This is the reason why FSGS patients are always asked to have medical tests as soon as possible when they find they are experiencing some abnormal symptoms.
