What to Do with Fluctuating Proteinuria for FSGS Patients

Question: My Brother has FSGS. He has been taking a treatment for 7 months of (cellcept ) and prednisone. His levels of proteinuria are not becoming lower. It has been fluctuating in high levels between 1396 - 3059 and now is in 2450 mg/24 hours - creatinine is in 1.1 level and his renal condition went up to 73.9 ml/min/1.73 m2. Please kindly suggest.

What to Do with Fluctuating Proteinuria for FSGS PatientsAnswer: From what you say, I see that your bother’s kidney disease is in stage 2 CKD. And there is not severe damage to the kidneys. Therefore, there is no need to be over worried. What we should do now is to stop proteinuria and preserve kidney function as much as possible. Only in this way can your brother live a normal life.

How to stop protein leakage for FSGS patients?

Now your brother is taking cellcept and prednisone. These medicines are common used drugs to inhibit inflammatory reaction in the kidneys and decrease permeability of capillaries so as to stop kidney fibrosis. But it seems that your brother has no response to these medicines. As to the steroid-resistant patients, we often recommend TCM treatment.

TCM treatment includes Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang and decoction. The first two therapies are external therapies and the last two therapies are oral Chinese medicine. Combined internal and external therapy shows good curative effect. They can detoxify the blood to reduce the damage to the kidneys. They can also dilate blood vessels and block blood clotting to increase blood flow into the kidney, which can improve ischemia and anoxia in the kidneys so as to help kidney self-healing. Moreover, they can remove immune complexes and diseased tissues from the glomeruli and activate DNA duplication in the injured kidney tissues so as to speed up kidney recover. When kidneys are repaired to certain extent, proteinuria disappears.

If your brother receives our treatment as early as possible, it is likely to reverse FSGS. If you still have any question, please contact us at igacure@gmail.com or leave a message below.
