FSGS with Creatinine 5.3 and Weight Gain

2014-03-12 01:18

Some patients with FSGS will suffer from high creatinine level of 5.3 and weight gain. How does these symptoms occur? In this passage, let’s talk about this question.

How does creatinine 5.3 occur in FSGS?

FSGS is featured as an autoimmune kidney disease. The immune complex will deposit on glomerulus, which is the main filtration mechanism of kidneys, causing kidney damage. Creatinine is the metabolic waste of muscles. Kidneys are supposed to be able to filter the creatinine in blood. If kidneys are damaged, the creatinine will accumulate in blood, leading to high creatinine level. The normal range of creatinine is 0.5-1.2mg/dl. Creatinine 5.3 proves that kidney function has been moderately damaged.

How does weight gain occur in FSGS?

The weight gain in FSGS patient is mainly contributed by fluids retention. Kidneys are also responsible for removing the extra fluids in blood. The damaged kidneys are not able to finish this work. So the fluids will be retained.

Besides, if you eat too salty, water-sodium retention will occur, which will increase your weight. Another possible cause of weight gain is protein loss. Protein in blood has the function of keeping fluids in vascular. Failed kidneys cannot keep protein in blood. As a result, the fluids will spread into other tissue spaces, causing swelling.

Then how to deal with high creatinine level and weight gain in FSGS?

Improving kidney function is the basic solution to these problems. Hot Compress Therapy is recommended. This therapy is developed from the traditional Chinese medicine. What makes it different from the western treatments is that it can treat kidney disease without damaging kidney function but improving kidney function. Once kidney function is improved, all the problems will be relieved.
