Can FSGS Lead to Kidney Failure

Can FSGS Lead to Kidney FailureWith FSGS, the scarring occurs only in some of your glomeruli. As we all know, glomeruli are tiny blood vessels involved in filtering blood to form urine. When glomeruli are scarred, you may have edema, proteinuria, etc. Can FSGS lead to kidney failure? If you want to know the answer, please go on reading.

What affects the prognosis of FSGS?

Honestly speaking, FSGS can lead to kidney failure if you can not bring it under control. There are some patients who live very well with FSGS. The main factors that affect the prognosis is the protein leakage and the response to the treatment. Besides, high blood pressure and hyperlipemia are also the common factors.

How to avoid kidney failure for FSGS patients?

If you want to avoid kidney failure, you should try to these factors.

-Proteinuria. It can be controlled well by ACEI and ARB. These drugs can decrease high blood pressure as well as glomerulus internal pressure, which can reduce the permeability of glomerular basement membrane to macromolecular substances so as to reduce urinary protein. Besides, steroids can inhibit kidney inflammation, stabilize endosome escape, reduce fibrous protein and decrease the permeability of capillaries so as to reduce protein leakage.

-High blood pressure can be controlled by ACEI, ARB, CCB, diuretics, etc.

-Hyperlipemia can be lowered by statins, diet restriction, weight control, exercise, etc.

-Because some patients do not response well to the steroids, they can choose some natural remedies with few side effects. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a particular therapy of our hospital, which can improve ischemia and anoxia in the kidneys by dilating blood vessels and blocking blood clotting. This therapy can also restrain kidney inflammation by taking away the inflammatory factors from the kidneys and stop kidney fibrosis by degrading extracellular matrix. Besides, there are some adjunctive therapies to draw out toxins and improve blood circulation, such as foot therapy and enema therapy. With comprehensive treatment, your damaged kidneys can be repaired to certain extent so that you can avoid kidney failure.

Though we can not promise that your FSGS can be cured, we can help you live a normal life with FSGS. If you would like to acquire a personalized treatment plan, please contact online doctor.
