What Shall I Do with Stage 4 Kidney Disease due to FSGS

What Shall I Do with Stage 4 Kidney Disease due to FSGS“I was just diagnosed with stage 4 due to FSGS. What shall I do?” Stage 4 is a turning point. Without effective treatment, it develops to end stage renal failure quickly and then you have to live on dialysis or wait for kidney transplant. Therefore, importance should be attached.

As a matter as fact, what you should do now is to protect the remaining kidney function and prevent it worsening. And you should also repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function.

How to protect the remaining kidney function for stage 4 FSGS patients?

-Symptom management

If you have any symptoms, such as foamy urine, swelling and high blood pressure, you should control them as early as possible. Western medicine such as steroids, ACEI, ARBs and diuretics can help you eliminate them quickly. But take those medicines under the instructions of doctor.

-Healthy lifestyle

Healthy lifestyle also plays an important role in protecting your kidney function. In diet, you should limit the intake of protein into 0.4-0.6 g/kg per day and choose some high quality protein to eat such as lean meat and egg white. Besides, you should eat more vegetables and fruits high in vitamins such as onions, peppers, cranberry and guava. If you have high blood pressure and edema, you should limit salt intake. In exercise, you should strike a balance between exercise and rest. Doing moderate gentle exercise is OK. Avoid strenuous exercise.

How to improve kidney function for stage 4 FSGS patients?

In stage 4, there are many waste products in the blood, which is not good for kidney recovery. To improve kidney function, we should set up a good blood environment for kidneys. Therapies such as medicated bath, circle therapy, steam therapy and enema therapy are helpful. They can draw out toxins from other detoxification organs such as skin and intestinal tract. They can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to increase blood flow into kidneys. When the damaged kidneys get enough oxygen and blood, they begin to repair themselves.

If you want to live a normal life with stage 4 FSGS, you should receive treatment as early as possible. For more information, please contact online doctor.
