What Should I Do to Take Care of My Kidneys with FSGS

Question: Hi, I am a FSGS patient. My creatinine is 3.87, protein in urine is 2.9, blood pressure and cholesterol level is good to control with medications and diet. No swelling. Can you tell me what should I do more to take care of my kidneys?

What Should I Do to Take Care of My Kidneys with FSGSAnswer: Creatinine 3.87 is out of the normal range, which indicates that your kidneys have been severely damaged. If you can not take care of your kidneys well, creatinine level will increase further. Now let me introduce several ways to help you control the disease.


No one can live without diet. Diet does not only provide the nutrients the body needs, but also helps treat disease. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, there is even dietary therapy. However, some diets produce a lot of waste when digested, which can increase the workload of kidneys, so FSGS patients had better avoid eating such diets, such as plant protein. Because some creatinine is from the protein metabolism, you should restrict the protein intake. Restricted protein also helps reduce proteinuria. Besides, fresh vegetables and fruits are good choice for FSGS patients to boost immune system, prevent bone disease, ease anemia, etc.

TCM treatment

Western medications take effects quickly to control the symptoms, but they always have side effects if used for a long time. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can improve blood circulation by dilating blood vessels, blocking blood clotting and lowering cholesterol level. It can also increase blood flow volume to the kidneys. This can remove the stasis and immune complexes from the kidneys. With the reduce of immune complexes, kidney inflammation will ease so that protein leakage will decrease. Moreover, TCM can neutralize the free radicals in the kidneys to stop their damage to the kidneys and it can also stop kidney fibrosis. With TCM treatment, your damaged kidneys can gradually regain their ability and then creatinine level will also come down.

The above two treatments often go hand in hand. For more information, please leave a message below or send emails to igacure@gmail.com.
