Poor Appetite and Loss of Hair with FSGS: What to Do

Poor Appetite and Loss of Hair with FSGS: What to DoPoor appetite and loss of hair may reveal some severe problems for patients with FSGS kidney disease. Managing these problems well can not only improve FSGS patients’ life quality but also slow down the progress of their kidney disease. What should we do to overcome loss of appetite and hair for these patients?

No treatment can be a good treatment, if it doesn’t depend on the cause of patients’ disorder. From this point, we should firstly find out why FSGS patients have these two symptoms. To get effective treatments for you directly, you can email your test report to or describe your illness condition to the doctor online.

Poor appetite, or loss of appetite, is usually related to FSGS kidney disease in two aspects. One is the deposit of waste products especially urea in digestive tract, and the other is metabolic acidosis caused by sulfate, phosphate and other acid substances building up in the body.

In our body, hair are made up of protein. To slow down the progress of kidney disease, FSGS patients need to develop a low-protein diet. However, if they can’t take in enough protein or too much protein leaks out of the body via urine, malnutrition occurs easily, resulting in loss of hair. Besides, zinc deficiency is another cause of hair loss.

Furthermore, if patients are taking steroids or immunosuppressants, poor appetite and loss of hair is also one common side effect.

How to manage these two problems for FSGS patients? Based on the causes, these patients should modify their diet plan, use some blood purification methods to remove waste products, and take some alternative treatments to steroids and immunosuppressants.

Blood purification methods include hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, immune adsorption, hemofiltration, hemoperfusion, CRRT, and so on.

Natural alternative treatments to steroids and immunosuppressants include Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherapy and Clear Blood Pollution Therapy.

If you want to get rid of appetite and hair problem, you can check with the doctor to determine what treatments are best options for you.
