Can Minimal Change Disease Progress to FSGS

Can Minimal Change Disease Progress to FSGSBoth minimal change disease (MCD) and FSGS are the common glomerular disease, which is characterized by massive proteinuria. Can minimal change disease progress to FSGS?

First, let’s learn more information about MCD and FSGS.

MCD is a disorder where there is damage to glomeruli, the tiny filtering units in the kidney that remove wastes from the blood, while in FSGS, the scarring occurs only in some of the glomeruli and only part of the individual glomeruli is damaged. For MCD patients, the damaged glomeruli can be repaired with treatment, while for FSGS patients, the scarred glomeruli can not be revived.

MCD can progress to FSGS without timely and effective treatment.

Generally speaking, MCD is a very gentle kidney disease. The vast majority of children and adults recover from MCD and avoid relapses over the long term. Kidney failure is rare in patients with MCD.

The main treatment for MCD are corticosteroids, such as prednisone and prednisolone, which are given to inhibit kidney inflammation so as to help control the loss of protein in the urine. But for some MCD patients, they are steroid-resistant. If kidney inflammation can be eliminated timely, it can scar the glomeruli, leading to glomerulosclerosis. In fact, there are many natural therapies to help you control MCD, such as 4M treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various Medicinal Soup). They can remove immune complexes in the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation. They can also expand blood vessels and block blood clotting to increase blood flow into kidneys. Besides, they can degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. After a period of treatment, you can recover from MCD and prevent FSGS.
