Does Prednisone Have Healing Effect for FSGS Patients

Does Prednisone Have Healing Effect for FSGS PatientsFor FSGS patients, they are no stranger to prednisone. But how much knowledge do you have about such a kind of medication? Does prednisone have healing effect for FSGS patients? If you have the similar doubt, go on reading.

Prednisone helps control proteinuria.

Prednisone may be the most common used medicine to treat proteinuria. It can restrain the inflammatory reaction in the kidneys and decrease the permeability of capillaries to reduce the leakage of protein. However, once you stop the medicine or reduce its dosage, the immune reaction may be started again and then proteinuria comes back again. What is worse, you may have to suffer from its various side effects, such as weight gain, infection, osteoporosis, etc.

From the above, we see that prednisone has no healing effect for FSGS patients.

Systemic treatment to help kidney self-healing for FSGS patients

FSGS is related with poor immune system. Once you get infected or cold, there will be immune disorders. As a result, the infiltrating T cells in the glomeruli attack the kidney inherent cells directly or damage the epithelial cells by releasing vascular permeability factors.

Protein and blood in urine means the immune reaction is still active, so we have to control it first. The next step is to remove the immune complexes deposited in mesangial region. For FSGS, the immune complexes mainly consists of IgG and C3. This the on the basis of exact diagnosis. Only when we remove the immune complexes deposited in the kidneys can the disease be cured from the root.

After years of research, we develop Immunotherapy, a combination of western medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies. They can remove immune complexes from the blood and they can also block the abnormal immune reaction. Moreover, they can dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to increase blood flow into the kidneys, which can reduce the deposition of immune complexes. In a word, Immunotherapy can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing and it can also strengthen immune system to help you fight against kidney disease. The detailed information about our treatment, please contact online doctor.

Over 20% of FSGS can develop into renal failure stage within 5 to 10 years. Therefore, if you were really diagnosed with this kind of disease, I suggest you receive systematic treatment early.

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.
