Is He Going to Be OK with Kidney Function 17% and FSGS

Question: Our grandson has FSGS and his function is only 17%. Is he going to be OK?

Is He Going to Be OK with Kidney Function 17% and FSGSAnswer: Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a very severe kidney disease in which scar tissues develop on certain part of glomeruli. As long as the glomeruli become scarred, no treatment can survive them. Now he still has 17% kidney function, which means he is in stage 4 kidney disease. With proper treatment, he can avoid dialysis and lead a normal life. Without timely and effective treatment, he may go into ESRD quickly and then dialysis is a necessity. Therefore, whether he is going to be OK or not depends on what treatment he chooses.

Conventional treatment for FSGS patients with kidney function 17%

Conventional treatment is just to control the symptoms you have. For example, if you have high blood pressure, hypertension drugs such as ACEI or ARBs or diuretics are prescribed. If you have foamy urine, steroids and immunosuppressants may be prescribed. Though those drugs can help you to appear good, they can not solve the problems from the root. You will find that even with treatment aggressively, your kidney function keeps declining.

Alternative treatment for FSGS patients with kidney function 17%

FSGS is associated with immune complexes depositing in the kidneys. If you can not cleanse them from the kidneys, they will continue to impair your kidneys. 4M treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various medicinal soup) can decompose the immune complexes to reduce kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. They can also set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing and provide the damaged kidneys with essential elements to speed up kidney recovery. After a period of treatment, kidney function will be promoted to certain extent. If you want to improve kidney function, biotherapy may be a good choice, because it can rebuild the damaged kidneys.

Because the information you give me is too limited, it is difficult for me to help your grandson make a personalized treatment plan. For more information, please send his medical test report to igacure@gmail.com. Our doctors will reply you soon.
