Treatment Options for Stage 5 FSGS

Treatment Options for Stage 5 FSGSFSGS stage 5 is the most severe part of kidney disease. It means your kidneys are so severely damaged that they can not maintain your life. What are the treatment options for stage 5 FSGS?


Dialysis is the most common used treatment for stage 5 kidney disease. It is to use dialysis machine or take advantage of your peritoneum to cleanse the accumulated waste products and excess fluid from the blood so as to reduce their damage to your body. But its disadvantage is that it has many side effects and in the long run, it is not beneficial for kidney function preservation.

Kidney transplant

It is to put a healthy kidney into the body to replace the damaged ones to work. Relatively speaking, kidney transplant is better, because it allows you to go back to normal life. But it is not suitable for all patients. For FSGS patients, kidney transplant is not that good, because it has a high recurrence rate. Sometimes FSGS comes immediately after transplant. Even if you have done kidney transplant successfully, you have to take immunosuppressants for long-term, which can impair your immune system so as to expose you to more diseases.

Alternative treatment for stage 5 FSGS

Both dialysis and kidney transplant are kidney replacement treatment rather than to repair your own kidneys. If you still have urine output, it is possible to restore some kidney function so as to avoid dialysis and kidney transplant. 4M treatment and biotherapy may be a good choice for you. 4M treatment can set up a good blood environment for kidney self-healing and it can also provide the damaged kidneys with essential nutrients, such as amino acids, vitamins and trace elements. Biotherapy can help you rebuild the kidney structure and regain kidney function to maximum.
