Nowadays, FSGS has already become a common cause of renal failure. And more and more patients begin to care about the FSGS prognosis. As a patient with FSGS, if you are not satisfied with your current treatment and you still expected a good FSGS prognosis, follow us to learn about the following information.

How about the FSGS prognosis?

FSGS is such a disease which is not easy to be treated. Some patients will notice there still have lots of proteinuria though they take the medicines regularly. In that case, the FSGS prognosis will become poor in general, the risk for kidney failure will be increased. However, though some FSGS patients are lucky to receive a kidney transplant, they have to worry about the relapse of condition. Actually the relapse rate of FSGS can even reach up to 50-60%.

How to improve FSGS prognosis by Immunotherapy?

FSGS is a common autoimmune disease which is characterized by immune complexes depositing on glomerular epithelial cells. In many countries, these immune complexes can not be removed out of body effectively, which leads to the relapses of condition and the continue development of condition.

As a patient with FSGS, if you have already been on dialysis treatment, then we have to say that dialysis is unable to eliminate those immune complexes. However, other blood purification techniques like immune adsorption, blood perfusion, plasma exchange have obvious treatment effect in eliminating them. While the fact is that many countries do not have these advanced blood purification techniques.

If you have not been on dialysis treatment, then proper Chinese therapy will be used to help control immune disorder, repair glomerular damage and recover renal function, which is expected to help patients avoid dialysis and kidney transplant effectively.

As a matter of fact, the use of blood purification techniques and Chinese therapy are included in Immunotherapy. It is a systemic treatment including six steps for FSGS patients. If you have any follow-up questions, feel free to leave us a message below or email us to, we are glad to help.
