What Is the Prognosis of Stage 4 FSGS

What Is the Prognosis of Stage 4 FSGSFSGS is a kind of chronic kidney problem that can cause progressive decline of kidney function. So far there is no complete cure for FSGS, because dead kidney tissues can not be brought back to life again, but injured glomeruli can be repaired well. Prognosis of FSGS differs from case to case, because it can be affected by several factors. FSGS stage 4 is a relatively severe kidney condition, which always causes lots of physical discomforts. Well, what is the prognosis of stage 4 FSGS?

Stage 4 FSGS is a relatively severe kidney condition, but not serious enough to require dialysis. For one living with stage 4 FSGS, his kidney condition has been affected seriously. Severely damaged kidneys can not maintain normal life activities, so he usually experiences a series of physical discomforts like swelling, poor appetite, tiredness and dizziness. Under such a condition, if he can bring his illness under control, a good prognosis is possible and also there is chance for him to reverse stage 4 FSGS to stage 3. However, if he just leave his illness alone, End Stage Renal Disease or we can say end stage kidney failure will be finally caused, which usually indicates a poor prognosis.

In stage 4 FSGS, the kidney mainly contain three groups of kidney tissues: healthy kidney tissues, injured kidney tissues and dead kidney tissues. Dead kidney tissues can not be brought back to life, but injured kidney tissues can be repaired. Therefore, if patients receive the right treatment method, injured kidney tissues can be repaired well and illness can be reversed. At that time, they usually have a good prognosis. Whereas, if they just take some medicines to control their symptoms, illness will finally develops to kidney failure stage which is a sign of a bad prognosis.
