Not Response to Steroid with FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome: What Can I Do

Question: I am suffering from FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome. I am not responding to steroid and tacrolimus drugs. What can I do?

Not Response to Steroid with FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome: What Can I DoAnswer: FSGS is a common cause of Nephrotic Syndrome in adults. FSGS causes collapse and scarring of some glomeruli. The causes of primary FSGS is unknown. But some cases result from genetic defect, infection and toxic response to a drug, etc. Steroid and immunosuppressants like tacrolimbus are the most common used drugs to inhibit inflammatory reaction and reduce protein leakage. But as we can see that you do not response to these medicine. Here we recommend some other therapies.

Plasma exchange and immune absorption

This two therapies can be used with immunosuppressants together to cleanse the waste that can cause kidney damage from the blood. They can also remove the recycling factors from the blood to reduce relapse.

TCM therapies can not only to control the symptoms of Nephrotic Syndrome, but also protect kidney function and prevent chronic kidney failure.

Therapies such as medicated foot bath, full bath, enema therapy, circle therapy and steam therapy can draw out toxins from the blood. They can also improve blood circulation by increasing blood flow into the kidneys, lowering cholesterol level, removing stasis, etc.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an external therapies, which can penetrate the micronized herbs into the damaged kidneys. It can eliminate immune complexes from the blood to alleviate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis.

With comprehensive treatment, the progression to kidney function can be cut off and your kidney function can recover to certain extent. If you can combine TCM therapies with biotherapy, you can achieve a better curative effect.

FSGS is a serious disease. Without timely and effective treatment, more glomeruli will become necrotic and then kidney failure may occur. If you can stop the disease from progression, you can live a normal life without worrying about dialysis or kidney transplant.
