What are the symptoms of FSGS?
The onset of FSGS can occur at any age, depending on the underlying cause. The hallmark sign of FSGS is proteinuria. As proteinuria progresses, people with FSGS may experience severe swelling around the eyes, hands and feet, and abdomen causing sudden weight gain. Those with FSGS often feel exhausted, even after relatively simple tasks. Other symptoms of FSGS include low blood albumin, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure.
