FSGS & Stage 4 Kidney Disease with Anemia and Swelling

2013-11-11 10:58

FSGS & Stage 4 Kidney Disease with Anemia and SwellingAn individual suffering from FSGS and Stage 4 Kidney Disease is most likely to suffer from anemia and swelling as well. So what are the causes and treatment of these problems? This article provides the necessary information.

Causes of anemia in FSGS and Stage 4 Kidney Disease

Anemia is a condition that develops when the blood faces a shortage of healthy red blood cells (RBCs). Why do kidney patients get this problem?

Healthy kidneys produce hormone known as erythropoietin or EPO, and this hormone helps in the formation of RBCs. In case of Stage 4 CKD, the severely damaged kidneys are unable to make EPO, leading to a drop in the number of RBCs, and triggers anemia.

In addition, severely damaged kidneys are unable to filter the toxic wastes, and they will buildup in the blood, adversely affecting the healthy RBCs.

Causes of swelling in FSGS and Stage 4 Kidney Disease

When the kidneys get seriously impaired, they may lost their ability to control how much fluid stays in the body. A person may notice swelling (edema) in their lower legs, hands, face around the eyes. With too much fluid retention, patients may even feel difficulty breathing.

In order to get rid of symptoms like anemia or swelling, people with FSGS and Stage 4 Kidney Disease are recommended to find an effective and holistic treatment to repair the damaged kidneys and restore the overall renal function. Only in this way, the further progression of renal disease can be prevented.
