How about FSGS Prognosis and How to Improve it

2013-09-08 17:01

FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis) is a type of kidney disease that scars parts of the glomeruli. While FSGS often progresses to kidney failure, there are wide variations in the progression of the disease. If you are a FSGS patient or there has a patient with this condition around you, are you ready to follow us to learn more about FSGS prognosis?

How about FSGS prognosis?

Compared with other types of nephrotic syndrome, the FSGS prognosis may not be that good. About a half of FSGS patients do not respond to the immunosuppressive agents well, there still has lots of proteinuria though they are treated with medicines, which puts this group of FSGS patients into a high risk for kidney failure. When the condition develops to a certain degree, dialysis treatment will be recommended. Though it can help relieve some symptoms of FSGS, dialysis is unable to stop the continue loss of renal function. Some related data shows that the average life expectancy for dialysis patients is 4.25 years, but some cases can even live for 20 years. A successful kidney transplant can really help FSGS patients prolong life expectancy and improve the quality of life. But FSGS is such a kind of kidney disease with higher relapse rate after kidney transplant, this relapse rate can even reach up to 50%.

How to improve FSGS prognosis?

The most efficient way to improve FSGS prognosis is to treat the disease from the root, repair kidney damage and recover renal function. Take the safety and efficiency into account, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will be recommended here. This treatment is based on Chinese herbal medicines, but applied externally. Through degradation and improving blood circulation, Chinese herbal medicines can eliminate those immune complexes, and patients can see the obvious treatment effect from the discharged cotton-like materials in their urine. Through anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, extending blood vessels, promoting blood circulation, removing blood stasis, promoting DNA replication of damaged inherent cells and providing nutrition for damaged kidneys, Chinese herbal medicines help gradually repair kidney damage and recover renal function. To save kidneys and to avoid kidney failure and dialysis will undoubtedly help improve the FSGS prognosis.
