How Long Will the Kidneys Take to Stop Working Properly for FSGS Patients

Question: I was diagnosed with FSGS two years ago. My kidneys are still working, but how long will it take to stop working properly?

How Long Will the Kidneys Take to Stop Working Properly for FSGS PatientsAnswer: AS the name implies, only some glomeruli are affected and just part of the affected glomerulus is involved with the sclerosis. Patients with FSGS are likely to have non-selective proteinuria, hematuria, progression to chronic kidney failure and poor response to corticosteroid therapy.

In the first two stages of CKD namely when your GFR is more than 60, there are seldom symptoms or the symptoms are so slight that you hardly realize them. When you realize there is something wrong with you, you may be in stage 3. How long it takes to stop working properly depends on many factors, such as age, current medical condition, treatment you receive, etc. Now let’s have a look at the treatment you should receive.

-Conventional treatment

Conventional treatment is to control the symptoms. For example, ACEI or ARBs to lower blood pressure and reduce proteinuria and immunosuppressants to inhibit kidney inflammation. But just controlling symptoms is not enough. You should try to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. In such case, we recommend you some new treatment for FSGS.

-New treatment

Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital has received hundreds of patients from the abroad. Their characteristic treatment is Traditional Chinese Medicine. Therapies such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang and decoction are very effective in treating kidney disease. They can draw out toxins from your body to reduce their damage. They can also dilate blood vessels, speed up blood circulation, remove stasis and block blood clotting to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing. Moreover, they can supplement the essential nutrients to speed up kidney recovery. After a period of treatment, you will find that symptoms such as edema and proteinuria gradually disappear and you will become energetic. Long-term treatment can help you protect your kidneys from being damaged and then you can live a normal life without worrying about kidney failure.
