How Quickly Does FSGS Develop to Kidney Failure

How Quickly Does FSGS Develop to Kidney FailureFocal Segmental Glomerulonephritis (FSGS) is a kidney disease that can scar or harden glomeruli. Recently there is no treatment for FSGS. That is to say, it will develop to kidney failure eventually. How quickly does FSGS develop to kidney failure?

For some patients, it takes several months to develop to kidney failure. For some patients, it takes several years. While for some patients, they can lead a normal life with FSGS without worrying about kidney failure. How does this occur? Do you want it to develop quickly or slowly? How to slow down the progression? The key is the treatment they receive now.
Treatment for FSGS patients to slow down the progression

First, you should find out your FSGS is primary or secondary. If it is secondary FSGS, you should treat that particular illness first. Conventional treatment for FSGS include corticosteroids and other immunosuppressive drugs such as cyclosporine. These medications are used to decrease proteinuria. Another important part of treatment is to control blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels. ACEI and ARBs are used to reduce the protein loss and blood pressure. Diuretics are used to help the body get rid of excess fluid and swelling, which can lower your blood pressure too.

But the above treatment is not enough. If you want to prevent the glomeruli from being hardened, you should dilate blood vessels and speed up blood circulation to remove stasis so as to increase blood flow into kidneys. You should also decompose the deposited immune complexes in the kidneys such as IgG and C3 to eliminate kidney inflammation. Moreover, you should detoxify the blood, lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol level to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. A comprehensive treatment including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Composition and decoction can help you achieve all the goals.

Besides treatment, you should follow a renal-friendly diet, do some gentle exercise regularly, have a good rest, keep good moon, etc. Those healthy lifestyle can help you consolidate the therapeutic effect.

How quickly does FSGS develop to kidney failure? Different FSGS patients have different conditions. Therefore, it is difficult to predict. But I think no one wants their disease to develop quickly. With the help of online doctor, you can learn more information about how to slow the progression of FSGS.
