Alternatives for FSGS Patients with Kidney Function of 26%

Question: I have FSGS and a function of 26%, which has fallen from 36% in past 2 years. Doctor is going to put me on mycophenolate next month, but am looking for alternatives.

Alternatives for FSGS Patients with Kidney Function of 26%Answer: Now your kidney function is 26%, which means you are in stage 4 FSGS. And your kidney function is reduced by 10% in 2 years. That is really a quick decrease rate. According to this rate, you will go into end stage renal disease (ESRD) in 2 years. Do you want to start dialysis? Of course not. Right?

Mycophenolate Mofetil (CellCept) for FSGS

This is a commonly used treatment for FSGS patients to reduce the strength of the body’s immune system so as to suppress renal inflammation and control the progression of FSGS. From this point of view, they are good for your condition. But every coin has two sides. When immune system is comprised, you are prone to infections, which is a common cause of relapse or even death.

Now the damaged kidneys can not work well to filter waste products and extra fluid from body adequately, so there must be a lot of excess substances in the blood, which do not only cause direct damage to kidneys, but also counteract the effect of medications you take to restrain you from getting well. Therefore, it is necessary for you to cleanse the blood. Here we recommend you to try Toxin-Removing Treatment, also known as Detoxification Therapy.

This is a systemic treatment, which includes many therapies, such as oral Chinese medicine, external therapies, plasma exchange, cytokine infusion therapy, etc. Those therapies can work together to eliminate waste products from body via urine, sweat and bowel movement. They can also improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients, vitamins and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, they can reduce renal inflammation by restoring the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines so as to halt the progression of FSGS.

After about one week’s treatment, edema will fade away, and you will see floccules in urine.

After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria will be reduced. High creatinine, BUN and uric acid level will decline as well.

After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control, and the decrease rate of GFR will be decreased.
