Is Dialysis and Transplant the Only Option for FSGS Stage 5 Patients

Question: I am having focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and diagnosed as CKD stage 5. Doctors have said dialysis and transplant is the only option left. Is there any other way I can combat this as am only 23 and wish to live a long life.

Is Dialysis and Transplant the Only Option for FSGS Stage 5 PatientsAnswer: When kidney disease develops to stage 5, dialysis and transplant are often recommended to take over kidney function to maintain your life. But they are not the only option if you still have urine output. Urine output is a good sign, which indicates that some of your kidney tissues are still working. The only way out of dialysis and transplant is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. With the help of online doctor, you can get a personalized treatment plan to restore kidney function. Now let’s have a general look at treatment for stage 5 FSGS.
Initial treatment for FSGS stage 5

Because in stage 5 there are a lot of waste products in the blood, which does not only cause further damage to the kidneys, but also impair other systems of body, such as respiratory system, cardiovascular system, blood system and so on so as to threaten your life. Therefore, the initial treatment for stage 5 FSGS is to detoxify the blood. If you do not want to do dialysis, you can choose plasma exchange, immune absorption, blood filtration and some other western medicine treatment. Besides, you can also take advantage of Chinese medicine treatment, such as circle therapy, medicated full bath, medicated foot bath, enema therapy and steam therapy. The combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine can not only cleanse waste products in the blood, but also remove stasis so as to set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing.
Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy for FSGS stage 5

FSGS is associated with immune complexes such as IgG and C3. Therefore, the next treatment for stage 5 FSGS is to decompose immune complexes in the kidneys so as to eliminate their inflammation. And it is necessary for you to degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis. In this course, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is used.
Biotherapy for FSGS stage 5

If you want to restore your kidney function to the maximum, stem cell therapy (biotherapy) is a good choice for you. Because the stem cell can be differentiated into kidney tissues when they are injected into the body. And then they can take the place of the dead kidney tissues to work.

The above treatment can help you get rid of dialysis and transplant. Therefore, dialysis and transplant is not the only option for FSGS stage 5 patients. For more information, please leave a message below.
