How Should I Manage eGFR 54 with FSGS

How Should I Manage eGFR 54 with FSGS“I am diagnosed with FSGS. I have an eGFR of 54 ml/min. How should I manage this?” eGFR 54 means you are in stage 3 kidney disease. What you should do is to protect your remaining kidney function and prevent further damage to the kidneys. The following aspects may help you a lot.

You should follow a renal-friendly diet。

-If you have edema or high blood pressure, you should limit the salt intake into 3 g per day. But it does not mean you should avoid salt. Because salt free diet may make you feel weak and headache. If you do not have edema and high blood pressure, it is unnecessary for you to limit the salt intake.

-In order to reduce the workload of kidneys and lower urea level, you should restrict protein intake into 0.6 g/kg per day. High quality protein is preferred, because it can provide your body the essential amino acids. Egg white, lean meat and poultry without skin are all such kind of protein.

-You should also control the intake of seafood, which is a great source of uric acids.

In addition, you should pay attention to the intake of calcium, potassium, fat, vitamins, etc. A renal-friendly helps you strengthen immunity and revitalize kidney function.

You should have a good rest.

Overwork decreases your immunity and worsens your state of illness, so you should have a good rest. But it does not mean you should stay in bed all day. You can still work and do exercise. But you should do some gentle exercise like walking and jogging.

You should protect yourself from infection.

Infection such as cold, sore throat and diarrhea can add insult to injury, so you should pay attention to them. Once you are infected, do not use medicine optionally, because some of the medicine has renal toxicity.

You should also do physical examination regularly.

Though your symptoms are usually controlled very well with western medicine, you should do physical examination, such as blood test and urine test regularly, which helps you have a good knowledge of your medical condition and take corresponding treatment timely.

There is a set of treatment consisted of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang and decoction. They can help you repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. With the help of online doctor, you can learn more information about these therapies.

The above aspects should go together. Only in this way can you achieve a better curative effect.
