Is FSGS Fatal

Is FSGS FatalWhen diagnosed with FSGS, some patients may feel scared to death. They may wonder whether FSGS is fatal or not. In the following, let’s learn something about FSGS.

FSGS is not fatal.

FSGS is a kind of kidney disease in which scar tissue develops on parts of the glomeruli. As we all know, glomeruli is responsible for filtering the blood as it passes through the kidneys. When there is something wrong with the glomeruli, large amounts of protein from the blood leak into the urine rather than remaining in the bloodstream, leading to proteinuria. Besides, FSGS patients may have high blood pressure, edema, anemia, etc. With the development of FSGS, more and more symptoms will appear and the symptoms will become more and more serious. Some complications of FSGS are fatal, such as heart disease. However, FSGS is not fatal if you can bring these symptoms under control.

How to treat FSGS?

-Control symptoms

When you have the above symptoms, you should receive treatment aggressively. Western medicine can help you control symptoms quickly. For example, ACEI and ARB can control blood pressure, steroids can reduce proteinuria, and diuretics help relieve edema, etc.

-Repair the damaged kidneys

Controlling symptoms helps slow down the progression to kidney failure, but that is not enough. We should repair the damaged kidneys. Only in this way can we stop the progression. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, there are many therapies to help you make the body balanced and harmonious. For example, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang, decoction, full bath, circle therapy, etc. They can purify the blood and improve blood circulation to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. They can also supplement the nutrients such as vitamins, amino acids and trace elements to activate DNA of damaged cells to speed up their recovery. After a period of treatment, the damaged kidneys can regain their ability and then you can live a normal life.

FSGS is not fatal, but it can affect the quality of life, preventing you from enjoying life. Therefore, you had better take measures as early as possible to avoid further damage to the kidneys.
