Can I Have A Successful and Long Lasting Kidney Transplant with FSGS

Question: Hello. I was diagnosed with CKD in 2005. Latest biopsy suggested FSGS. My GFR is 25 and I will be referred to a transplant program at 20. Can I have a successful and long lasting transplant with FSGS? Worried about recurrence.

Can I Have A Successful and Long Lasting Kidney Transplant with FSGSAnswer: Now your GFR is 25. It is still in stage 4, a stage you should consider kidney transplant or dialysis in the future. Generally speaking, kidney transplant is better than dialysis, because it can help patients live a normal life. But you may also know that FSGS has a very high recurrence rate after kidney transplant. Some studies have shown that recurrence of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) in the allograft occurs in 30–50% of patients, and it is associated with poor renal allograft survival. That is why many FSGS patients have the similar doubt with you.

But in fact it is possible for you to avoid kidney transplant and dialysis with timely treatment.

Your kidney condition is not that worse. As long as you take treatment timely to halt the progression of disease, you can live a normal life without dialysis or kidney transplant. Conventional treatment such as steroids and immunosuppressants can only help you reduce renal inflammation and decrease proteinuria rather than stop the progression. Therefore, you had better choose alternatives.

Here we suggest you to try Toxin-Removing Treatment, also known as Detoxification Therapy. This is a systemic Chinese medicine treatment, which is made up of various therapies, such as Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, Cycle Therapy, etc. Those therapies can work together to eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body via urine, sweat and bowel movement. They can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, they can restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and prevent the disease from getting worse.

After a short period of treatment, symptoms such as swelling, proteinuria, high blood pressure and so on will get relieved greatly. After a long period of treatment, your FSGS will be under control, and renal function will get improved.

If you really want to do kidney transplant, you can also take Toxin-Removing Treatment firstly to make internal environment good for the survival of kidney.

Can you have a successful and long-lasting kidney transplant with FSGS? Yes, but you need to improve internal environment firstly. For more information on FSGS treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
