How Does Smoking Affect FSGS

Question: How does smoking affect FSGS? My brother got this diagnosis about two years ago, and he is a smoker.

Answer: For FSGS patients, they should stop smoking, because it can affect the kidneys a lot.

1. Smoking can affect medications to lower high blood pressure. If you can not control your blood pressure well, it will cause further damage to your kidneys.

2. Smoking slows the blood flow into important organs including kidneys, which can cause ischemia and anoxia so as to add insult to injury.

What else should be paid attention for FSGS patients?

Besides quit smoking, FSGS patients should stop drinking and staying up. To have a good control of FSGS, it is necessary for you to set up a healthy lifestyle. For example, to eat less salt and more fresh vegetables and fruits, to restrict protein intake, to take part in some gentle exercises, etc.

In addition, you should seek treatment aggressively. Treatment for FSGS should not only focus on eliminating symptoms and complications, but also repairing kidney damage and promoting kidney function. Here Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is recommended. It is a characteristic treatment of Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital. It can dilate blood vessels and block blood clotting to increase blood flow into damaged kidneys to improve ischemia and anoxia. It can also decompose the deposited immune complexes and remove lesion tissues to reduce kidney inflammation. Besides, it can degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis.

After about one week’s treatment, there will be floccule in urine, which are those immune complexes and wastes passing out of body. After about half month’s treatment, high blood pressure, swelling, anemia and so on will get relieved. After about one month’s treatment, your proteinuria will decrease. And your kidney function will increase.

Smoking worsens FSGS, so you had better avoid it if you want to have a good prognosis.
