Details: I have FSGS and swelling in my feet that even affects my ability to walk. I want to find some therapies to ease my feet swelling.

Expert Answer

FSGS is one leading cause of Nephrotic Syndrome especially for children and young people, so quite a number of FSGS patients are experiencing swelling in feet, ankles, legs, face, and so on.

For FSGS patients, swelling in feet is usually associated with protein leakage as well as fluid retention. In view of this, we would like to recommend the following methods to help ease patients' swelling.

- Limit the intake of fluid and sodium: If patients have fluid retention in the body, they should limit their fluid and sodium intake.

- Take in high-quality protein: High-quality protein can help increase plasma osmotic pressure that can help ease swelling in patients' feet.

- Elevate the affected feet when sleeping: This method can help prompt blood circulation in feet and ease patients' feet swelling effectively.

- Repair damaged kidney filtering structure: The onset of FSGS has a link with immune disorder, so we would like to recommend Immunotherapy for these patients to treat FSGS from the root and ease patients' swelling and some other problems.
