Should You Have Another Kidney Transplant with FSGS

Should You Have Another Kidney Transplant with FSGSThe kidney you transplant can only survive for several years. It is said that a living donor kidney functions, on average, 12 to 20 years, and a deceased donor kidney from 8 to 12 years. Years later, you may have to do dialysis or wait for another kidney transplant to prolong your life. Should you have another kidney transplant with FSGS?

Kidney transplant for FSGS patients.

-Kidney transplant and dialysis are the common used therapies for kidney failure patients to filter waste and excess fluid from the blood. Because kidney transplant allows the patients to go back a normal life, it is preferred to dialysis. However, not all patients with kidney disease are suitable for doing kidney transplant. For certain type of kidney disease, it has high recurrence rate. Some data show that primary FSGS has a recurrence rate of 20-50 % after kidney transplant leading to graft failure in13-20% of patient in 10 years after kidney transplant. And some people say that the recurrence rate is as high as 50%-100%. It may be related with the immune complexes in the blood.

Besides, after kidney transplant, you have to take immunosuppressants to inhibit the immune system to attack the kidney. Once your immune system is suppressed, you are exposed to various diseases.

Therefore, kidney transplant is usually not suggested for FSGS patients if you still have kidney function.

You should protect your own kidney function.

If you still have urine output, it is possible for you to improve kidney function. Western medicine can only help you control the symptoms, so it is not recommended. While Traditional Chinese Medicine can make your whole body harmonious and balanced. If you really want to do kidney transplant, you should set up a good blood environment before the transplant. TCM is also helpful.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang and Medicated Soup can draw out the toxins from the blood, dilate blood vessels, lower cholesterol level and remove stasis to increase the blood flow into the kidneys to improve ischemia and anoxia. Besides, they can degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis and provide the essential substances for kidneys. Moreover, these therapies can help eliminate the immune complexes, helpful for the survival of kidneys.

You can do another kidney transplant with FSGS, but you should know how to protect your own kidney function as well. For more information, please contact online doctor.

Hope the above information is helpful for you. If you have any other questions on kidney disease or want to get more personalized and professional treatment suggestions, please leave a message below.
