Is It Fatal with Only 22 % Kidney Function for FSGS Patients

Question: My friend has found out that he has FSGS. Kidney function has declined 60 % in 3 months. Now he has 22 % kidney function. Doctors said he would be on dialysis in a year. Is it fatal?

Is It Fatal with Only 22 % Kidney Function for FSGS PatientsAnswer: From what you said, we can see that his kidney function declines quickly. It indicates that the treatment he receives now does not have effect on improving kidney function. Now 22 % kidney function can still manage the normal function of body. But some complications may occur so as to threaten his life, such as heart failure. Generally speaking, kidney disease does not cause death, but its complications are life-threatening.

A kidney is consisted of millions of glomeruli. According to the information you give me, the glomeruli in the patients’ kidneys can be divided into three parts. One part of glomeruli are healthy, they are maintaining his renal function. One part of his glomeruli have been damaged due to lack of blood and oxygen and inflammation reaction in the kidneys. The last part of glomeruli have been sclerosis so that they can not work any more.

What we can do now is to help him protect his healthy glomeruli and prevent them from getting damaged by offering a good inner environment. For the damaged glomeruli, we should provide them with enough blood and oxygen to help them self-healing. We should also decompose the immune complexes deposited in the kidneys to suppress kidney inflammation. Only in this way can kidney function get improved. When his kidney function improves, he can get rid of dialysis and live a normal life.

In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, there are many therapies to help him achieve the goal, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang mixture and decoction. If you are interested in our treatment, please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.

Hope the above information is helpful for you. If you have any other questions on kidney disease or want to get more personalized and professional treatment suggestions, please leave a message below.
