Are There Other Ways of Minimizing the Amount of Froth in My Urine with FSGS

Question: I've been diagnosed with FSGS and I've been taking prednisone 10 mg, enalapril 20mg, atorvastatin20 mg, pentoxide 40mg, multivitamins 1 tablet, and Fish oil capsules 2 for a year now....I don't have any edema but only froth in my urine....Are there other ways of minimizing the amount of froth in my urine?

Are There Other Ways of Minimizing the Amount of Froth in My Urine with FSGSAnswer: FSGS is a kidney disease that can lead to glomerulosclerosis. Conventional treatment for FSGS is to use western medicine to reduce the symptoms you have. Now let’s have a look at the treatment you receive.

-Prednisone is a kind of steroid that blocks kidney inflammation and decreases the permeability of capillaries so as to stop protein leakage.

-Enalapril is an ACE inhibitor used to treat high blood pressure and congestive heart failure.

-Atorvastatin is an oral drug that is effective in lowering triglycerides and reduce LDL cholesterol.

-Pentoxide is an oxide containing five atoms of oxygen in the molecule.

-Multivitamins help you supplement various vitamins so as to maintain the function of body.

-Fish oil helps you inhibit kidney inflammation, reduce cholesterol level, improve bone health, prevent heart failure, etc.

Those medications may be helpful for you to control symptoms, but as we can see that they are not effective enough to reduce proteinuria.

What causes proteinuria for FSGS patients?

FSGS is associated with immune complexes such as IgM, C3 and C1q depositing in the glomeruli. Those immune complexes cause kidney inflammation, which increases the permeability of capillaries. And then protein which should be remained in body leaks into urine, leading to proteinuria.. Without effective treatment, inflammation can scar kidneys, leading to FSGS. Prednisone can just help you inhibit kidney inflammation rather than remove those immune complexes, so it is not that effective.

Traditional Chinese Medicine for FSGS patients to minimize the amount of forth in urine

In TCM, there are many therapies to help you, such as Mai Kang Composition, Medicated Foot Bath, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and various Medicinal Soup. They can decompose the deposited immune complexes and remove the inflammatory cytokine to eliminate kidney inflammation so as to stop proteinuria. They can also set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing and provide the essential nutrients for damaged kidneys to speed up recovery. After a period of treatment, symptoms associated with FSGS will disappear.

Are there other ways of minimizing the amount of forth in my urine with FSGS? The above treatment is helpful, but it is too general. If you would like more information, please leave a message below or send emails to igacure@gmail.com.
