FSGS and Chronic Kidney Failure

Darshita is a fourteen years old girl, who has been diagnosed with FSGS and chronic kidney failure on peritoneal dialysis for nine years. She came to China for treatment for better control of her kidney disease in July, 2013.

Thanks for Darshita who allowed us to share her story here.

Name: Darshita

Gender: Girl

Age: 14

Country: India

Diagnosis: FSGS, Chronic Nephritis, Chronic Kidney Failure, renal anemia, renal hypertension, pericardial effusion

Darshita’s Story:

According to Darshita’s father, the girl was diagnosed with FSGS about four years ago. She lived through swollen eyelids and lower limbs. The test showed proteinuria 4+ and occult blood 2+. The local doctor only prescribed medicines including prednisone and cyclophosphamide to control her symptoms.

In 2010, Darshita started to suffer from swelling of face and lower limbs again. Diagnosis given at the local hospital is “Chronic Nephritis, FSGS” with high blood pressure150/100mmHg, creatinine 1.5mg/dl and proteinuria 2+. Under the doctor’s instruction, anti-hypertensive medicines are prescribed.

Unluckily, the symptoms like nausea, vomiting and headaches occurred in this little girl. Test was done again, which showed blood pressure 160/100mmHg, creatinine 15mg/dl. The doctor suggested Darshita to begin peritoneal dialysis. The disorder was not well controlled under the treatment.

When Come to Our hospital:

On July 20, 2013, Darshita came to our hospital. The doctor gave her a personalized treatment plan depending on the result of tests. She took a few times of dialysis and Mirco-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy started to be used in her case.

Conditions after Treatment:

She was hospitalized for some days in our hospital. The condition started to be better.

Date Scr Haemoglobin BP

2013-8-13 18umol/L 91g/L 90-150/80-90mmHg


After systematic treatment, Darshita's condition got great improvement. Her severe swelling disappeared completely and blood pressure was within control. With the doctor's permission, she got discharged from the hospital. However, our doctor would always be in contact with her family and offer further guidance for her treatment at home.
