Why Do People Suffer From FSGS

Why do people suffer from FSGS? It is normal for people who are diagnosed with Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis to complain why people suffer from this disease and why it is me who get FSGS. We might feel sad or scared when we are told we are living with FSGS which is an illness that can develop to kidney failure finally. But, this should not be a reason for us to take treatment as quickly as possible. FSGS is a refractory kidney disorder and if we really want to get it removed or controlled successfully, finding out the root cause is necessary.

Well, why do people suffer from FSGS?

FSGS is a kidney problem in which some glomeruli (less than a half of glomeruli) are injured for some reasons like accident, drugs, genetic factor and so on. FSGS can be primary or secondary. For people who are living with FSGS caused by other illnesses, apart from treating damaged kidney, they also need to tightly control primary cause, so as to avoid secondary kidney damages.

Lastly, although the causes for people to suffer from FSGS varies from case to case, one thing for sure is that the occurrence of FSGS is definitely related with abnormal immune system, because immune system is the one that should protect us from any disease.

How to recover from FSGS?

Once being affected by FSGS, the most important thing is to take effective treatment as soon as possible. In healthy kidney, glomeruli are in charge of filtering blood and meanwhile separate nutrition and harmful substances. When many of glomeruli are injured, filtration function will be affected and impaired. Under such a condition, toxins will build up in the blood and nutritions leak into urine. This is the reason why FSGS patients have elevated creatinine level and proteinuria.

To get FSGS treated effectively, we must repair injured glomeruli and improve kidney function. Only in this way, can all the clinical manifestation be alleviate fundamentally and also permanently.Besides, as the appearance of FSGS is associated with immune system, improving immune system is also very important. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is just such a treatment that can repair injured kidney damages and meanwhile help to increase immunity. Therefore, for FSGS patients who still have not find an effective treatment, they can try Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.
