Do FSGS Patients Die Younger than Most People

Do FSGS Patients Die Younger than Most PeopleKidney is consisted of millions of glomeruli. When blood goes into the kidneys, the glomeruli can filter waste products and excess fluid out of the body. When these filterers are damaged, they become scarred. And then they are no longer able to filter blood appropriately. Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) means the scarring occurs only in some of the glomeruli. And only part of the individual glomeruli is damaged. So far, there is no effective treatment to cure it. That is why many patients are afraid that their life expectancy is affected. Does FSGS patients die younger than most people? In the following article, you will have a brief look.

FSGS patients may die younger.

If left untreated, most FSGS patients will eventually develop to complete kidney failure and require dialysis or a kidney transplant to maintain their life. Even with treatment, many patients will still require dialysis. How long this will take varies widely (2-20 years) and is difficult to predict. If you could find a suitable treatment for your FSGS, it is totally likely for you to protect the remaining kidney function and lead a normal life.

How to live a long life with FSGS?

To live a long life with FSGS, you should first find a suitable treatment for FSGS. Since current treatment for FSGS such as steroids and immunosuppressants can not cure FSGS, why not try some new treatment. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we develop 4M treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Composition and Medical Soup). They are helpful in improving the blood environment by regulating the flowing qi, removing stasis, cleansing waste products, lowering blood pressure, controlling blood sugar level, etc. In a good blood environment, your damaged kidneys can quickly regain their ability.

Besides medical treatment, you should pay attention to your diet, exercise, emotion and other aspects. A comprehensive treatment will bring you a better curative effect.

Does FSGS patients die younger than most people? Of course not. With timely and effective treatment, it is possible for you to live full life without worrying about kidney failure. For more information, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
