What Kind of Treatment Can Help FSGS Stage 4 Patients Delay Dialysis and Kidney Transplant

Question: I have FSGS. Just crossed over to stage 4 (eGFR at 25.5). What kind of treatment can I expect to control or at least delay dialysis and kidney transplant?

What Kind of Treatment Can Help FSGS Stage 4 Patients Delay Dialysis and Kidney TransplantAnswer: Dialysis and kidney transplant are the most common used treatment for end stage renal failure failure to sustain their life. But they are not perfect. For example, dialysis has many complications like muscle cramp and skin itch and after kidney transplant you have to take anti-injection drugs, which suppress your immune system and expose you to more diseases. That may be why many kidney patients want to avoid dialysis and transplant.

What is FSGS?

FSGS can be primary or secondary. No matter what kind of FSGS you have, it is associated with IgG, C3 and some other immune complexes depositing in the kidneys. In short term, they may just cause kidney inflammation. But in long term, the inflammatory part may become hardening. And then FSGS occurs.

Treatment to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function for FSGS patients

From the above we can see that the treatment should include:

-Inhibit kidney inflammation

-Cleanse immune complexes from the kidneys.

-Block the abnormal immune system to prevent the production of immune complexes

-Increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so as to prevent inflammation

Conventional treatment such as steroids and immunosuppressants can only help you achieve the first goal. To achieve the other goals, we should make use of other treatment. Immunotherapy is such a therapy that combines with western medicine and Chinese medicine. After a period of treatment, you will find that your GFR increases.

Now your eGFR is at 25.5. Early treatment can help you improve GFR so as to help you get rid of dialysis and transplant. If you are interested in our treatment, please feel free to contact online doctor or leave a message below.
