How to Prevent FSGS from Developing to Nephrotic Syndrome

How to Prevent FSGS from Developing to Nephrotic SyndromeWith FSGS, some of the glomeruli are sclerotic. As a result, protein which should be retained in the blood vessels leak out. When protein leakage is more than 3.5 g/24 h and plasma albumin is less than 30 g/L, Nephrotic Syndrome occurs. FSGS is a common cause of Nephrotic Syndrome. How to prevent FSGS from developing to Nephrotic Syndrome?

To prevent FSGS from developing to Nephrotic Syndrome, you should detect this disease in the early stage and prevent the glomeruli from being sclerotic further. There are some principles of treatment for FSGS patients.

-Symptomatic treatment

It includes anti-coagulation, antithrombus, lowering blood pressure, reducing cholesterol level, relieving proteinuria, and providing essential nutrients. There are many western medicine to help you achieve the goal, for example, ACEI and ARB to control blood pressure and steroids to control proteinuria.

-Protect kidney function and slow down the progression

In this aspect, Traditional Chinese Medicine has its unique advantages. In treating FSGS, we often use a set of TCM therapies, including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Medicated Soup and Mai Kang. The first two are external therapies and the last two are oral Chinese medicine. The combination of external therapies and oral Chinese medicine can achieve a good curative effect.

This set of treatment can draw out toxins from body so as to reduce the workload of kidneys. They can also dilate blood vessels, speed up blood circulation and remove blood stasis to increase the blood flow into kidneys, which can improve ischemia and anoxia in the kidneys. Besides, immune complexes can not easily deposit in the kidneys because of the increased blood flow so that kidney inflammation caused by immune complexes can be relived. Moreover, these therapies can provide the kidneys with essential nutrients and help them repair themselves.

With the above treatment, I think you can have a better control of your state of illness. Though FSGS can not be cured, you can still live a normal life with our treatment.
