What does FSGS Kidney Disease Mean?

Have you ever known that what does FSGS mean? And do you have knowledge of FSGS kidney disease. Such kind of disease belongs to kidney disease and which will cause kidney failure as the progression of the renal disease. Many people especially adults and children are suffering from FSGS kidney disease. If you are among such kind of group, how do you deal with it? Now I want to tell you that don’t lose hopes in your life and you will have a better life in your future.

First we know that FSGS is a kind of kidney disease. An estimation of incidence and prevalence of FSGS in children is hampered by the fact that most children with nephritic syndrome (NS), unlike the majority of adults, are not routinely subjected to renal biopsy.

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a histologic diagnosis that may be found either without an identifiable cause (in which case it is called”idiopathic or primary”) or in response to previous glomerular injury, glomerular hypertension, or hypertrophy” secondary”. Primary FSGS may present acutely with overt nephritic syndrome with hypoalbuminemia and edema or, less often, insidiously with less dramatic manifestations, possibly related to the underlying histologic variant. In contrast, secondary FSGS most often presents as asymptomatic proteinuria without hypoalbuminemia or edema. Distinguishing between primary and seconday disease is particularly important because of the markedly different approach to therapy in the two disorders.

Primary FSGS was previously considered to be largely unresponsive to immunosuppressive therapy; however, glucocortocoids, cyclosporine, and other immunosuppressive agents have been usede with considerable therapeutic success. In contrast, immunosuppression is not indicated in secondary FSGS.
