Is FSGS Fatal if You Are Not Responding to Steroids

Is FSGS Fatal if You Are Not Responding to Steroids Steroids (also known as Corticosteroids) are often used by FSGS patients to reduce proteinuria. But for some patients, they are steroid-resistant. Is FSGS fatal if you are not responding to steroids?

FSGS is not fatal if you can bring it under control.

Steroids are not the only medications for FSGS, thus when you are not responding to them, you can use some other medications. For example, you can use steroid and other immunosuppressants such as cyclophosphamide together. If you are fed up the side effects of steroids, you can use some other treatment to control FSGS

Alternative treatment to treat steroid-resistant FSGS

In China, we often use Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat FSGS. In TCM, there are many kinds of therapies, for example, 4M treatment (Mai Kang Composition, Medicated Foot Bath, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and various Medicinal Soup) and 7 external therapies (Steam Therapy, Enema Therapy, Medicated Full Bath, Circle Therapy, Acupoint Application, Acupuncture and Moxibustion). 4M treatment is the main treatment for FSGS, while 7 external therapies are used as adjunctive treatment to assist you achieve a better therapeutic effect. Some of those therapies can cleanse the blood so as to reduce the damage of waste products to your body. Some can dilate blood vessels and block blood clotting to improve blood circulation in the kidneys. Some can decompose the deposited immune complexes in the kidneys and remove the diseased tissues to eliminate kidney inflammation. Some can degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. And some can supplement the essential nutrients for damaged kidneys to help recover. All in all, our treatment can help you repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. With well-functioned kidneys, it is unnecessary for you to concern FSGS threaten your life.
