FSGS Life Expectation with GFR 15

FSGS Life Expectation with GFR 15GFR measures how well the blood is filtered by the kidneys. After being filtered, blood flows to all the parts of body. When the kidneys are scarred due to FSGS, GFR declines and blood can not be filtered timely and effectively. As a result, massive waste products build up in the blood. And then all your body system will be affected. What is the life expectation of FSGS patients with GFR 15?

Life expectation with GFR 15

It is hard to tell you the life expectation with GFR 15, but it depends on many factors, such as age, current physical condition, symptoms, treatment, etc. For example, the life expectation of old men with GFR 15 is worse than middle-aged men. The life expectation of people with GFR 15 and high blood pressure is worse than people without high blood pressure. We can not change our age, but the other conditions can be improved through treatment.

How to prolong your life expectation for FSGS patients?

-Generally speaking, when GFR is less than 15, dialysis is used to cleanse waste products from the blood so as to reduce their damage to your body. It can prolong your life, but it affects your life quality and refrain you from enjoying your life fully, because dialysis has many complications.

-If you want to live a full life, you should repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. Wen GFR reaches 15, there are three kinds of renal cells, namely intact ones, inflamed ones and sclerotic ones. In the face of this, we should protect the intact ones from being damaged, and repair the inflamed ones. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Mai Kang Mixture, Medicated Bath and decoction can detoxify your blood and remove stasis to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. They can also inhibit inflammation and stop kidney fibrosis to prevent further damage. As to the sclerotic ones, we can use biotherapy(Stem Cell Therapy) to replace them. After a period of treatment, your GFR will be promoted to certain extent.
