Do FSGS Patients Have to Receive Kidney Transplant

2012-10-22 08:43

Patient: I was diagnosed with FSGS and I have started dialysis 3 days a week. I am actually going to try dialysis 2 days a week. I still produce urine. Is kidney transplant my last choice? You know waiting for a donor really take years.

Doctor: That you still have some urine is really a piece of good news. It means you still have some certain kidney function. So we do believe that it is early to say kidney transplant is your last choice. Then why not we try to save much kidney function and enhance kidney function?

The most common symptom of FSGS is nephrotic syndrome, there are about 2/3 of FSGS patients have a plenty of protein urine and serious swelling, about 50% have blood in urine,and about 30%-50% have high blood pressure. But there is a group of FSGS patients do not have any obvious symptoms(sometimes there is protein in urine when having a routine urinalysis),and usually the prognosis is good except that few cases develop very fast into Renal Failure (about1-2 years).

When the condition develops into Renal Failure, dialysis may be recommended, however, dialysis can not treat kidney diseases, the final result of a long-term dialysis must be a kidney transplant. Moreover, it does not mean that everything will be ok after a kidney transplant. There are so many patients who receiving kidney transplant are attacked by kidney disease again in clinical, so they have to go back to dialysis or receive the second kidney transplant.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is based on the Chinese herbs, without any side effects for the human body. This treatment is not surgery, not oral taking medicine, this is the external application treatment. The active materials of Chinese herbal medicines will help FSGS patients eliminate the immune complexes depositing in kidneys, repair the damaged glomeruli and enhance the kidney function. As long as the kidney function can be enhanced, then FSGS patients may prevent kidney transplant.
