Alternative Treatment to Improve the Prognosis of FSGS

2013-02-26 13:48

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a kind of glomerulonephritis featured with the scarring of filters in kidneys, called glomeruli. FSGS develops very rapidly and has a very poor prognosis. However, there is alternative treatment to improve the prognosis of FSGS.

FSGS is an immune disorder. Immune system is a powerful protective system of the body and it can help the body defeat against the foreign harmful stuffs. However, in FSGS, the antibodies and white blood cells we have to fight off infection cause some damage to kidneys. As the filters of kidneys are damaged, a large amount of proteins will leak into urine. FSGS is the most common cause of Nephrotic Syndrome. If nephrotic syndrome occurs, it often predicts a bad prognosis of FSGS.

General treatments are important to improve the prognosis of FSGS. The following treatment tips can help a lot.

* Treat proteinuria:Controlling protein in urine under 1g/24 h can improve the prognosis. However, if proteinuria is left untreated, FSGS will develop into ESRD within 3~6 years. A restricted diet low in proteins and steroid therapy can help.

* Keep blood pressure under control: Both initial and secondary high blood pressure can cause extra strain on tiny blood vessels of kidneys. Meanwhile, it can increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases which are significant death cause of kidney disease.

* Additionally, anticoagulant drugs and lipid-lowering drugs are often prescribed to control the complications of FSGS.

* Immunotherapy: it is an alternative treatment for FSGS. As mentioned above, the cause of FSGS is immunological. Immunotherapy treats the disorder by suppressing the abnormal activity of immune system and preventing the immune inflammatory response in kidneys. In this way, it can stop further damage to filters of kidneys.

* Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: it is a natural therapy for FSGS. It aims at activating the self-healing system of the body to improve renal function. Thus, it can improve the prognosis of FSGS significantly.
