Can FSGS Develop to ESRD

Question: In biopsy, I have FSGS with creatinine 2.3, protein in urine ++ and high blood pressure (poorly controlled after taking lots of BP medicine). Can it develop to ESRD?

Can FSGS Develop to ESRDAnswer: So far, no cure exists for Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). That is to say, it will eventually develop complete renal failure even if you take treatment. But a proper treatment can help you slow down the progression to ESRD so that you have more time to enjoy your life.

Now from what you said, we can see that your case is very severe. As we all know, creatinine usually does not increase until half of your kidneys have been severely damaged. Your creatinine rises to 2.3, which is nearly twice the normal creatinine range (0.5-1.2 mg/dL). And even though you take a lot of BP medicines, your high blood pressure is still poorly controlled. Hypertension is a risk of all kidney patients, including FSGS patients. Because it does not only cause further damage to your kidneys, but also impair your hearts and cardiovascular system to threaten your life.

First, reduce blood pressure.

You should take BP medicine under the instruction of your doctor. If it is still poorly controlled, you can take interventional therapy into consideration. This therapy can dilate blood vessels to lower blood pressure.

Second, preserve your remaining kidney function and lowering creatinine level.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), there are many therapies to help you, for example, 4M treatment. This set of treatment includes Mai Kang Composition, Medicated Foot Bath, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and various Medicinal Soup. They can help you cleanse the blood. They can also regulate blood pressure, blood sugar level and blood cholesterol level to set up a good blood environment. Besides, they help inhibit kidney inflammation and stop kidney fibrosis. After a period of treatment, your creatinine level will decline, protein in urine will disappear and your blood pressure will bring under control. Long-term treatment can help you resume your kidney function.

If you do not want FSGS to develop to ESRD quickly, you should take treatment as early as possible. The earlier you receive treatment, the more possibility for you to avoid ESRD. For more information, please leave a message or send emails to igacure@gmail.com.
