Is There Any Good Medication for FSGS

Is There Any Good Medication for FSGSFSGS is a disease that affects the kidney’s filtering system causing scarring and loss of large amounts of protein in the urine. So far there is no treatment that is effective for every person with FSGS. Is there any good medication for FSGS?

Western medicine for FSGS

Conventional treatment for FSGS is to use western medicine to control symptoms.

-ACEI or ARBs is to lower blood pressure, reduce proteinuria and protect kidney function. Besides, calcium channel blocker and beta-blocker are also effective in reducing blood pressure.

-Steroids such as prednisone and immunosuppressants such as cellcept are to suppress kidney inflammation and decrease permeability of capillaries so as to control proteinuria.

-Ketosteril is used together with low protein diet to provide your body with amino acids. It can also help lower creatinine level and reduce proteinuria.

-Statin may be used when you have high cholesterol level.

-If you have edema, diuretics are used to flush out the excess fluid from your body. They also help control blood pressure.

According to your medical condition, your doctor will prescribe various western medicine. They can bring symptoms under control quickly, but they have side effects if used for long-term.

Chinese medicine for FSGS

In Chinese medicine, there are also many kinds of herbs to help you control symptoms, such as astragalus, salviae miltiorrhizae, potentilla disclor bunge, euphorbia humifusa, etc. But when they are boiled into decoction, they taste very bitter. In fact, there are many kinds of external therapies for you.

-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is to infiltrate micronized herbs into the damaged kidneys. This therapy is anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, blood vessel dilation and extracellular matrix degradation.

-Medicated foot bath is to immerse your feet into the diluted medicated soup. This therapy can speed up blood circulation, detoxify the blood and remove stasis.

-Medicated full bath is to immerse your whole body into the medicated soup. This therapy can increase your urine output, dredge the channel and detoxify the blood.

In addition, there are circle therapy, steam therapy, enema therapy and moxibustion. Space limited, we do not explain them one by one.

The combination of oral Chinese medicine and external therapies can help you repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. But compared with western medicine, Chinese medicine takes effect slowly.

FSGS can not be cured, but it can be controlled very well with proper treatment. If you would like to know more information about our treatment, please contact online doctor.
