Will FSGS Attack Transplanted KidneyWill FSGS attack transplanted kidney? Kidney transplant is a good option for people with completely failed kidney to get off dialysis. Kidney transplant refers to the transfer of a healthy kidney from one person into the body of a person whose kidney function has been impaired severely. This medical method helps to increase life quality and life span effectively to some extent, but in some cases, kidney disease comes back again after the surgery. Well then, how about FSGS? Will it attack transplanted kidney?

Will FSGS attack transplanted kidney?

Will FSGS attack transplant kidney? As for this questions, I am afraid the answer is Yes. And basing on the clinical statistic, reoccurrence rate of FSGS after kidney transplant is as high as 20% to 66%.

FSGS is a medical condition in which scars are formed in glomeruli. It affects kidney function by damaging glomeruli and affecting them from functioning properly. Kidney transplant helps to retore kidney function, but if the causes of it can not be removed, transplanted kidney will be injured again.

Treatment options for FSGS patients

Since FSGS comes back easily after kidney transplant, some alternative treatments are needed. Different medicines can be used to treat FSGS in clinic and they show good effects, but the problem is most of them only focus on symptoms and they can not repair injured kidney intrinsic cells to improve kidney function. As for the treatments which treat FSGS fundamentally, Immunotherapy is recommended.

Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicines and Chinese medicines which are used to play different role in treating FSGS. By combining the advantageous of them, further kidney damages can be avoided. More important, injured kidney intrinsic cells can be repaired and kidney function gets improved. Besides, Immunotherapy causes no side effects during the whole treatment process, but it is only available for FSGS patients who still have urine output. Therefore, if you are a FSGS patient and still have a certain urine output, seizing this last chance to avoid dialysis and kidney transplant will be of great importance for you.
