Is Kidney Transplant A Good Choice for FSGS Patients

Is Kidney Transplant A Good Choice for FSGS PatientsKidney transplant and dialysis are the most common ways for ESRD patients to sustain their life. Relatively speaking, kidney transplant is favored by more patients, because it allows people to go back a normal life. But not all kidney patients are suitable for kidney transplant. Is kidney transplant a good choice for FSGS patients?

Recurrence rate after kidney transplant for FSGS patients

Nowadays FSGS is the most common kidney disease known to recur after kidney transplant. Recurrence rate of FSGS in Children is 50 % and 30 % in adults.

Disadvantages of kidney transplant

Besides high recurrence rate of FSGS, there are also other disadvantages for FSGS patients.

-You have to wait for a long time for a match

-There are risks when you are under such a surgery.

-Your transplant may not last a lifetime and you have to do dialysis again after many years.

-Daily medications are required to prevent your body to reject the new kidney. But they cause side effects and lower immune system. As a result, you are susceptibility to infection and many other diseases. Besides, there are possible changes in your appearance due to medication side effects.

Alternative treatment for FSGS patients

If you can improve your own kidney function, you can avoid kidney transplant and dialysis. In our hospital, we have many particular medications and therapies to help you remove blood stasis, cleanse toxins and regulate the qi flowing in the channels. In this way, your blood circulation is improved. And then your damaged kidneys can get enough nutrients and oxygen and repair themselves. Besides, we will supplement the essential substances to activate DNA in the damaged cells so as to speed up their recovery.

From the above we can see that kidney transplant is not a good choice for FSGS patients, but there is alternative treatment. If you would like to know more information about our treatment, please contact online doctor.
