Is Acupuncture Effective for FSGS

My husband was just diagnosed with FSGS, he is only 40. He has hypertension and rheumatoid arthritis. He was told with a preliminary report from his kidney biopsy that he has approx 25% function. Is acupuncture effective?

FSGS means some sections of glomeruli filters become scarred. Conventional Treatments all aim at controlling the symptoms. For example, steroid called prednisone is often given to reduce proteinuria, immunosuppressors are often prescribed to suppress immune system, diuretics and low salt diet to control edema, ACE inhibitors and ARB to control blood pressure and lower proteinuria, statins to lower cholesterol level, etc. However, they can not improve kidney function. There is only 25 % of kidney function left, measures should be taken quickly to slow down its progression to end stage, in which your husband may have to live on dialysis and wait for kidney transplant.

Acupuncture is a kind of Traditional Chinese Medicine therapy. It stimulates the blood circulation and improves the ischemia and anoxia in the kidney. It can also treat some symptoms caused by FSGS, such as back pain, high blood pressure, anemia, nausea and so on. However, it is often used as adjunctive treatment and it will be more effective when used with other Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies, such as moxibustion, medicated bath, enema therapy, hot compress therapy and so on. These therapies combined together can remove the wastes and toxins from your body, boost your immune system and improve kidney function. The most important is that they are all natural remedies so that there is no need for you to worry about their side effects.

If you would like to know the detailed treatment plan, please send the medical report of your husband to kidneyabc@hotmail.com. After analysis, we will give you reply soon.
