Does Membranous Nephropathy Cause FSGS

Does Membranous Nephropathy Cause FSGSMembranous Nephropathy is usually associated with the unusual deposits of immunoglobulin G and complement C3. For FSGS patients, under immunofluorescence test, you can also find IgM, C3, C1q and some other immune complexes settle on the scarred glomeruli. Does Membranous Nephropathy cause FSGS? Go on reading to learn more information.

Membranous Nephropathy can cause FSGS.

When those immune complexes deposit in the kidneys, they cause kidney inflammation and then permeability of capillaries increases so that protein which should be retained in the body leaks into urine. If you can not block kidney inflammation and cleanse those immune complexes from the kidneys timely, they can scar the glomeruli, leading to focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS).

How to prevent FSGS for patients with Membranous Nephropathy?

Conventional treatment is to use steroids and immunosuppressants to block kidney inflammation, but they can not cleanse those immune complexes. That is why patients with Membranous Nephropathy can not achieve a satisfying effect with only steroid and immunosuppressant treatment. In our hospital, we often use Immunotherapy. This therapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. It can cleanse the cycling immune complexes and inflammatory factors from the blood to eliminate kidney inflammation. It can also block abnormal immune reaction and inhibit kidney inflammation to reduce further kidney damage. Besides, it can increase kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes and then even if there are immune complexes, they do not cause any inflammation. And it can strengthen your innate immune system to help you fight against the disease. After a period of treatment, you can get Membranous Nephropathy under control and then you can avoid FSGS.

Does Membranous Nephropathy cause FSGS? In some cases, it can. If you would like to know more information on Membranous Nephropathy and FSGS, please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.
