Can Patients with FSGS take Ketosteril

2013-12-05 15:46

Ketosteril is commonly used to treat protein metabolic disorder due to chronic renal insufficiency.It is usually prescribed to patients with GFR below 25ml/min along with a low-protein diet. Can patients with FSGS take ketosteril?

Curative effects of ketosteril

Ketosteril itself does not contain amino.It can make use of the nitrogen in essential amino acid to convert to amino acid. Therefore,it can reduce the formation of urea nitrogen and the accumulation of uremic toxins.In addition,it can improve renal bone disease, hyperphosphatemia, secondary hyperparathyroidism and other associated conditions.

Ketosteril for FSGS

Ketosteril can be taken by FSGS patients with GFR below 25ml/min.In FSGS, as the glomeruli become scarred,a large amount of protein will leak into urine.Leakage of heavy protein in urine can result in many complications like swelling, malnutrition etc.

Ketosteril can stimulate the protein synthesis and inhibit the decomposition of proteins.It can elevate the level of albumin in blood and improve the malnutrition.

However,ketosteril has no significance in improving renal function at all.

To treat FSGS fundamentally,an alternative treatment should be applied called immunotherapy.This therapy has showed remarkable curative effects in treating FSGS in clinic.

Firstly,immunotherapy can suppress the inflammatory response in kidneys and abnormal activity of immune system.Thereby,it can stop further immune damage to kidneys rapidly and effectively in FSGS.

Secondly,immunotherapy can correct the immune dysfunction and help the body rebuild a normal immune system.In this way, the immune system will return to protect the body.

If the treatment is performed well,the patients will have remarkable improvements. In short term, the clinical symptoms like edema, proteinuria, high blood pressure etc will relieve. In long term, renal function will be improved remarkably. During the whole treatment process,ketosteril can be taken as an assistant treatment to control the associated symptoms.
