How Much Water Should FSGS Patients with Swelling Take

Question: I have FSGS. My creatinine is 1.8. How much water should I take daily? I have swelling in legs and feet.

How Much Water Should FSGS Patients with Swelling TakeAnswer: It is necessary for you to control water intake. Too much water intake can make your swelling worse, while too little water intake can worsen your oliguria. Here 1000-2000ml water intake is suggested. If you have reduced urine output, water intake is usually decided by it.

Now your creatinine level increases slightly, which means your kidney function has been impaired by FSGS, but with timely treatment, it is possible for you to normalize creatinine level and reverse the disease.

Treatment for FSGS patients with creatinine 1.8 and swelling.

Conventional treatment for FSGS is to use steroids, water pills and some other western medicine to control symptoms. This is just stopgap measure. If you would like to get permanent control, you should take treatment to repair kidney damage and restore renal function.

Toxin-Removing Treatment also known as Detoxification Therapy can be tried. It is a systemic Chinese medicine treatment, which makes use of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, Navel Therapy and so on to eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body. It can also improve blood circulation in body so that essential elements including nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, it can regulate the abnormal immune system to fight against the disease. After about one week’s treatment, swelling will disappear. After about half month’s treatment, creatinine level will reduce, and proteinuria will decrease. After about one month’s treatment, FSGS will be under control, and kidney condition will get improved. As renal function improves, water and creatinine can be passed out of body naturally.

How much water should FSGS patients with swelling take? Now you have a clear mind. To have further guidance on FSGS treatment, please send a copy of your lab report to igacure@gmail.com.
