What Causes Low Estimated GFR for FSGS Patients

What Causes Low Estimated GFR for FSGS PatientsGlomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) is the best test to measure how well your kidneys are functioning. With FSGS, your estimated GFR usually keeps declining even if you take treatment aggressively. What causes low estimated GFR for FSGS patients?

Causes of lower eGFR for FSGS patients

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis is a kidney disease that can lead to glomerulosclerosis. In FSGS, the scarring occurs only in some of the glomeruli. And only part of the individual glomeruli is damaged. FSGS is usually closely associated with immune complexes. When your innate immune system is weak, bacteria and virus invade into body so that your body secrete antibodies to fight against those antigens. During this course, a lot of immune complexes come into being. With blood circulation, they come into the kidneys. If your kidneys are not strong enough to filter them out of the body, they may deposit in the kidneys, leading to kidney inflammation, which over time cause glomerulosclerosis. Glomeruli are the main components of kidneys, so when they are damaged, your kidney function decreases and then eGFR lowers.

How to prevent eGFR from declining for FSGS patients?

If you want to prevent eGFR from declining, you should cleanse those immune complexes from the blood and kidneys. You should also block kidney inflammation to prevent further damage. Besides, you should strengthen your innate immune system so as to prevent bacteria and virus from invading into your body. Conventional treatment for FSGS is just to help you control symptoms rather than do the above things. That is why your GFR keeps decreasing even if you take treatment. In our hospital, we often use Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat FSGS, which has proved effective in improving kidney function. Maybe you can have a try.
