What Is The Life Span Of FSGSFocal Segmental Glomerular Sclerosis (FSGS) has a lower incidence but glomerular kidney disease can lead to serious kidney damage. Most FSGS patients are very curious that how long they can live. Therefore, what is the life span of FSGS? How to improve the life expectancy of FSGS?

We all know FSGS is very dangerous disease. If patients suffer from other complications or health problems, the life span will be shortened. On the other hand, it takes a long time for FSGS to develop kidney failure. Thus, if patients can find this disease in the early stage and accept treatment timely, medical conditions can get well controlled and kidney failure can be avoided. The average age of FSGS incidence is 21 and many patients will suffer from kidney failure in 5 to 20 years. When kidney failure occurs, patients need to take dialysis or kidney transplant to prolong their life span.

How to prolong the life span of FSGS?

The life span of FSGS is determined by many factors. If patients suffer from massive proteinuria and hyperlipemia, kidney function and whole body health is bad. If FGSS does not get well controlled, its prognosis is very bad.

Besides, the complications of FSGS affect the prognosis greatly, such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and hyperlipemia. Patients’ living habits also affect the life span like fatigue and high sodium intake. If FSGS patients want to improve their prognosis, they should change their living habits.

Also proper treatment and nursing care is an important part. Many treatments of FSGS have side effects. In this condition, the combination of western medicines and Chinese medicines is the perfect choice.
