What Is Life Expectancy in Children with FSGS

What Is Life Expectancy in Children with FSGS2-4 out of every 100,000 children are diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome each year. FSGS is associated with 15-20% of these cases and that morbidity in children is as high as 7%-15%. What is life expectancy in children with FSGS?

What is FSGS?

FSGS is a very serious kidney disease characterized by scarring in some glomeruli, the part of the kidney that filter blood. Only some glomeruli are affected, but the damage can lead to kidney failure. With FSGS, you may have proteinuria, edema, high blood pressure, hypoproteinemia, hyperlipemia, etc.

At present, no treatment can survive the scarred glomeruli. But if you receive treatment as early as possible, it is possible for you to protect the remaining glomeruli from hardening.

Children can outgrow FSGS with appropriate treatment.

Steroids are often used to reduce inflammation and control proteinuria, but half of FSGS patients who do not respond to steroids go into ESRD each year, requiring dialysis or transplant. Though transplant allows the children to live a relatively normal life. But FSGS returns in approximately 30-40% of patients.

Because children may have to take medicine for a long time, there will be a lot of side effect. In order to reduce the side effects, we recommend natural remedies. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang and decoction are characterized treatment of our hospital. There are other adjunctive treatment, such as moxibustion, full bath, steam therapy, circle therapy and enema therapy. They can cleanse waste and toxins in the blood. They can also improve ischemia and anoxia in the kidneys so as to prevent further damage. Moreover, they can relieve kidney inflammation and stop kidney fibrosis. After long term treatment, kidney patients can live very well with FSGS.

If you can protect the remaining kidney function and prevent other complications to occur, it is possible for children to live a full life. For information about FSGS treatment, please contact us at igacure@gmail.com.
