What Should I Do if Steroid Does Not Work on FSGS

What Should I Do if Steroid Does Not Work on FSGSFSGS patients often use steroid to treat proteinuria. But not all of them can get a remission. There are still some people who is steroid-resistant. What should I do if steroid does not work on FSGS?

Steroid can only control the inflammation in the kidneys, while immune complexes like IgM and C3 are still depositing in the kidneys. So whenever the patient catches a cold or any kind of infection, the disease will become more serious, because a lot of immune complexes will be produced when your body fights against the bacteria. From this point of view, FSGS is a kind of autoimmune disease caused by IgM and C3 depositing in the kidneys. It will cause ischemia and anoxia in the kidneys, thus leading to sclerosis of the glomeruli.

First, stop the inflammation in kidneys.

In China, we give patients Tc-MDP, matrine or tripterygium glycosides to stop the inflammatory reaction in the kidneys.

Second, remove the immune complexes deposited in the kidneys.

In this step, we often use Chinese medicine therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang and decoction. They can combine with the immune complexes, split them and discharge them out of the body through blood circulation. One week later, you will see floc-like things in urine. It is the immune complexes and extracellular matrix. Besides, these medicine can expand blood vessels, improve blood circulation and increase the blood flow into the kidneys so that there are enough oxygen and blood in the kidneys. And then the self renewal of the damaged cells will be reactivated and regain their kidney function.

With the above treatment, you can live with FSGS very well without worrying about worsening. The earlier you receive treatment, the more possibility for you to reverse the disease. 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.
