What Do You Do When Treatment for FSGS Causes GFR to Go Down

What Do You Do When Treatment for FSGS Causes GFR to Go DownFocal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a very severe kidney disease, which scars glomeruli so as to affect your kidney function. GFR is a test used to check how well the kidneys are working. Though you are receiving treatment for FSGS, it is possible for your GFR to decrease.

Why some treatment for FSGS causes GFR to go down?

Conventional treatment for FSGS is to use different kinds of medications to control symptoms. For example, to use ACEI or ARBs or CCB to reduce blood pressure, to use steroids and other immunosuppressants to block kidney inflammation and reduce protein leakage, to use diuretics to ease swelling. Those medications can help you relieve body malaise, but they can not help you treat FSGS from the root, that is why your GFR declines even if you seek treatment aggressively.

How to stop GFR from going down for FSGS patients?

FSGS is associated with immune complexes depositing in the kidneys, so treatment for FSGS should not only focus on blocking the inflammatory reaction caused by them, but also cleansing them. Immunotherapy is a combination of western medicine and Chinese medicine. This therapy can cleanse the cycling immune complexes and inflammatory chemicals from the blood to reduce kidney inflammation. It can also increase the kidneys’ tolerance to immune complexes so that even if there are immune complexes, they do not cause kidney inflammation. Besides, it can strengthen immune system to reduce the production of immune complexes and help you fight against the disease. After a period of treatment, your kidneys can regain some function and then your GFR will increase.
