Can Prednisone Treat FSGS Radically

Can Prednisone Treat FSGS RadicallyPrednisone is a synthetic corticosteroid drug that is particularly effective as an immunosuppressant drug. It can treat a number of different conditions, such as inflammation, allergies, arthritis, vision problems, kidney problems, etc. Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a kidney disorder in which kidney tissues become scarred gradually. Can prednisone treat FSGS radically? Go on reading to learn more information.

Prednisone can eliminate some symptoms caused by FSGS.

FSGS is associated with immune complexes depositing in the glomeruli. Because immune complexes are not part of kidney, kidney will start inflammatory reaction to cleanse them, which over time cause kidney sclerosis. Inflammation can increase the permeability of capillaries so that protein and red blood cells which should be retained in the body leaks into urine. That is why FSGS patients often have proteinuria and hematuria. Prednisone can decrease your immune system’s response to reduce symptoms, such as protein leakage and swelling. But it can not remove immune complexes from the kidneys. Under some inducement, such as infections, inflammatory reaction will be triggered again.

Prednisone has many side effects.

FSGS is a chronic disease. In the short term, prednisone can help you control symptoms and prevent further damage to the kidneys, but in the long run, it has many side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, trouble sleeping, increased sweating, etc. That is why many patients do not like prednisone.

Not all FSGS patients are sensitive to prednisone.

For those patients who are sensitive to prednisone, this kind of medicine can help you bring FSGS under control quickly. But many FSGS patients are steroid-resistant. In such case, prednisone is not a good choice. 4M treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Composition and various Medicinal Soup) can decompose the immune complexes in the kidneys to eliminate kidney inflammation and degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. They can also set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing and provide the damaged kidneys with essential elements to speed up recovery. After a period of treatment, you can regain your kidney function to certain extent.

Can prednisone treat FSGS radically? No, it can not. If you do not want to suffer from the side effects of prednisone and if you want to lead a normal life with FSGS in the long run, you had better choose a natural treatment.
