2013-06-08 14:22

FSGS is a disorder featured with inflammation and scarring of glomeruli which are filters in kidneys.In stage 3 FSGS,the kidneys are impaired moderately,thus resulting in protein in urine and swelling.

The filters in kidneys just like sieve with holes in different sizes.They can selectively filter wastes from body,but make the useful substances retain in blood.Any damage to the sieve will make the kidneys function inadequately. In right condition, the proteins are too large to leak through the holes on the sieve.However,in FSGS,the filters are impaired.As a result,protein will be leaked into urine, mainly albumin.

Albumin in blood acts as a sponge and it can hold fluid in blood vessels. However,loss of albumin can lower the colloid osmotic pressure.The fluid in blood vessels will infilter into tissues, thus resulting in swelling.Due to gravity, swelling usually primarily occurs in legs and ankle.

Stage 3 FSGS is very critical period.In this stage,the kidneys are impaired moderately,some symptoms just occur.If aggressive treatment is used,the kidney damage can be reversed.

However,in traditional western medicines,only prednisone, cyclophosphamide and some medicines are used.These medicines can relieve symptoms and slow the disease progression,but they are far more enough to halt the disease progression.

FSGS can be idiopathic or secondary to other conditions and diseases.The general cause of FSGS is immunological.It means that the immune system which protects body against disease,but attacks the healthy cells and tissues in your body mistake.The abnormal immune response can cause inflammation in kidneys to affect the normal renal function.

Therefore, to stop the progression of stage 3 FSGS and treat protein in urine and swelling fundamentally,the primary goal of treatment is to recover immune system and restore the impaired glomeruli. The combined therapy of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and immunotherapy is a recommended treatment for the patients with the condition.
