What Are the Chances of Kidney Failure for FSGS Patients

Question: Hi. I was wondering if you could tell me if minimal change disease can progress to FSGS if not treated? If so; what are the chances of kidney failure given my kidney function has already started to deteriorate? For nearly 20 years my kidney function was normal even with high protein leaks.

What Are the Chances of Kidney Failure for FSGS PatientsAnswer: Compared with other types of kidney disease, Minimal Change Disease is very slight. With timely and effective treatment, it can be cured. But if not treated, it can progress to FSGS. Most patients with FSGS will eventually develop complete renal failure and require dialysis or kidney transplant to survive. Even with appropriate treatment, many patients will eventually require dialysis. How long this will take varies widely (2-20 years), and is difficult to predict. The appearance of your kidney biopsy under the microscope may give your doctor some idea of the time frame. Specific forms of FSGS have been associated with different rates of progression and responsiveness to therapy. Now you can send a copy of your medical test report to igacure@gmail.com. After analyzing your case, our renal experts will give you a reply and give you corresponding treatment suggestions.

Your kidney function was normal for nearly 20 years even with high protein leaks. That is really good. But we should know that massive protein leakage is a factor that affects your prognosis. If you want to prevent your renal function from declining, you had better bring down your proteinuria. Here we suggest you a systemic Chinese medicine treatment. It is Toxin-Removing Treatment.

It makes use of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, Navel Therapy and various oral Chinese medicine to expel waste products and extra fluid out of body to make internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application. It can also improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys to supply them with enough essential elements to speed up kidney recovery. Once your kidneys are repaired, protein leakage will be stopped. After about one month’s treatment, proteinuria will turn negative.

What are the chances of kidney failure for FSGS patients? Now you have a clear mind. For more information on FSGS treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
