Conventional treatment for FSGS include steroids and other immunosuppressant. They can decrease proteinuria and improve kidney function. But FSGS is a chronic disease.

Steroids are not the only medication for FSGS.

In the world, there are many kinds of medications. For example, in China, Traditional Chinese Medicine is widely used. In India, ayurveda medication is popular. In some areas, homeopathy is used.

And Mai Kang Composition and various decoction are oral medicine. The combination of external therapies and oral medicine can achieve a better therapeutic effect. They can cleanse your polluted blood. They can also remove stasis and increase blood flow into the kidneys. They can inhibit kidney inflammation and stop kidney fibrosis.
