Why You Get FSGS

Why You Get FSGSFSGS is a severe kidney disease that scars some of your glomeruli, which at last can cause kidney failure. Why you get FSGS while other can live a normal and healthy life? Have you ever thought of such question? In this article, you will find the answer.

Causes of FSGS

FSGS is associated with poor immune system which exposes you to the various toxic and harmful substances. When they come into your body, your body will produce a lot of antibodies to resist them. During this process, massive immune complexes comes into being. With blood circulation, they will travel in the whole body. As we all know, kidneys are responsible for filtering the blood. If the kidneys can not expel from the blood timely, they deposit in the kidneys, causing inflammation. Without effective treatment, these inflammatory tissues will gradually be fibrosis and scarred.

Therefore, FSGS treatment is to strengthen immune system, remove these toxic and harmful substances, and eliminate kidney inflammation.

How to prevent FSGS from developing to kidney failure?

Conventional treatment is to inhibit kidney inflammation and relieve symptoms, such as ACEI and ARB to lower blood pressure, immunosuppressants and steroids to reduce proteinuria. But that is not enough. Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. This therapy is made up of six steps, namely immune diagnosis, immune clearance, immune block, immune tolerance, immune protection and immune regulation. They can cleanse immune complexes from the blood, block abnormal immune reaction and increase the kidneys’ tolerance to the deposited immune complexes. They can also improve blood circulation to speed up kidney recovery. Though the scarred tissues can not be treated, it is possible to repair the inflammatory ones and improve kidney function.

If you are diagnosed with FSGS, do not be over worried. With early treatment, it is possible for you to protect the kidneys very well and live a normal life.
