Why Kidney Function Declines Even You Take Treatment Aggressively for FSGS

Question: Hi, I have FSGS. When I started on this journey. I had 100 percent of my kidney function. A doctor told me I had blood in my urine. I went to a nephrologist. They have put me on different drugs. But the kidney function got worse. It has reached 39 percent kidney function. Why the medicines make my protein creatinine ratio getting worse when I am on the medicine? How can the medicine for FSGS cause kidney damage? It seems that those drugs do not make sense. Should I get off for a month?

Why Kidney Function Declines Even You Take Treatment Aggressively for FSGSAnswer: The questions you referred are not unique. Many other FSGS patients suffer from similar problems as well. FSGS is a chronic kidney disease which is associated with immune complexes depositing in the kidneys. Those immune complexes cause kidney inflammation. Inflammation can expand capillaries so that protein and red blood cells which should be retained in the body leak into urine, leading to proteinuria and blood urine.

Conventional treatment for FSGS is to use steroids and other immunosuppressants to block kidney inflammation and decrease permeability of capillaries to reduce proteinuria and blood urine. FSGS treatment also includes hypertensives to lower blood pressure, water pills to alleviate swelling, statin to lower blood cholesterol level, etc. Those medications can help you eliminate those symptoms, but they can not cleanse those immune complexes from the kidneys. The remaining immune complexes can cause further damage to your kidneys. Besides, western medicine has many side effects if used for long-term. They can also impair your kidneys. That is why your kidney function keeps declining even if you take medications under the instruction of your doctor.

However, you can not stop the medicines suddenly, because it can make the condition worse. What you should do is to find a relatively natural treatment for FSGS, which can decompose the immune complexes in the kidneys. In fact, in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), there are many therapies to help you, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various medicinal soup. They can not only cleanse those immune complexes, but also degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. Besides, they can set up a good blood environment for the damaged kidneys to repair themselves. After a period of treatment, you will find that your kidney function is promoted to certain extent.

Why kidney function declines even you take treatment aggressively for FSGS? Now you have acquired the answers to the question.
