Is GFR 59 Bad for FSGS Patients

Is GFR 59 Bad for FSGS PatientsAs we all know, GFR shows how well your kidneys are working. When GFR declines, it means your kidneys are impaired. Is GFR 59 bad for FSGS patients?

GFR 59 means you are in early stage 3 CKD.

When bacteria and virus invade into your body, antibodies, such as IgG and IgA will combine with them, leading to immune complexes. Under normal circumstance, they can be filtered out of the body via kidneys. But due to some unknown reasons, they deposit in the kidneys, which may activate alexin, such as C3 to cleanse them out. An over immunizing inflammatory reaction may cause hardening to the kidney tissues. That is FSGS.

FSGS is a kind of CKD, which means it progresses slowly. According to GFR, CKD is classified into 5 stages. In CKD stage 3, GFR is between 30-59.

Treatment for FSGS patients with GFR 59 to reverse the disease.

-Symptom treatment

So far treatment for FSGS is just to control symptoms. For example, steroids and immunosuppressants for proteinuria, ACEI or ARB for high blood pressure, diuretics for edema, etc. Though those medicines take effect quickly, they can not repair the damaged kidneys, because those immune complexes remain in the kidneys.

-Systemic treatment for FSGS

If you want to recover from FSGS, you should receive a systemic treatment. Here is a set of treatment consisted of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, Mai Kang and decoction. Maybe you can have a try. This treatment can detoxify the blood to prevent further damage. They can also remove those immune complexes from the blood and kidneys to reduce kidney inflammation. Moreover, they can improve blood circulation and supplement nutrients to help kidney recovery. After a period of treatment, you will find that your GFR increase and symptoms associated with FSGS, such as foamy urine, edema and cold limbs disappear.

Though GFR 59 does not affect the quality of your life now, it will gradually decline if you can not receive an effective treatment. When it is less than 15, you may have to do dialysis. Therefore, take treatment now.
