Why there is high potassium level with FSGS?
FSGS is marked by glomerulus damage and decline of kidney function. when more and more glomerulus are damaged, the kidney function will greatly drop. Kidneys are the main organs to keep balance of electrolyte. When kidneys are damaged, the electrolyte balance will be broken. Potassium is one of the important electrolyte in our body. The potassium cannot be discharged due to kidney problems. So there is high potassium level in blood.
How to lower high potassium level with FSGS?
Because of kidney damage, the overmuch intake of potassium in diet will increase the level of potassium in blood, which will further damage kidneys. So you are suggested to ask your dietitian for a proper diet plan.

Dialysis acts as an artificial kidney. It can help kidney discharge the waste products and extra fluids as well as excessive electrolyte. So the extra potassium will be filtered out.
This therapy is different from dialysis. It can lower high potassium level by repairing the damaged glomerular membrane basement not by removing potassium out directly. Besides, this therapy has a positive effect on improving kidney function by dilating blood vessels, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation and degrading extracellular matrix. Once the damaged glomerulus is saved, FSGS will get better. For how this externally used therapy functions, you can contact the online doctors!
