2013-12-29 16:39

FSGS is a very difficult disease to manage. If no aggressive treatment is applied,ESRD will be the final result.Is FSGS curable and does it need kidney transplant?

Is FSGS curable?

FSGS is a kind of glomerulonephritis in which a part of the glomeruli become scarred and necrotic.It can be primary or secondary to other diseases and conditions.However,the general cause is immune dysfunction.It means that the immune system of the body loses its protective function,but attacks glomeruli by mistakes.The abnormal activity of immune system can cause inflammation in kidneys.The inflammation may worsen renal function,resulting in progressive renal function loss.Eventually, FSGS may occur.

FSGS is not curable.However,an aggressive treatment can stop renal function decline and even reverse kidney damage.

Does FSGS need kidney transplant?

When Kidney Failure occurs in FSGS,kidney transplant is a preferred treatment option for the patients.It is a process in which the impaired kidney is replaced with a healthy kidney. While it can help the patients return to a normal life,the disease is very likely to return to the transplanted kidney. It is reported that FSGS can return to more than 40% cases after kidney transplant. Is there any way to reduce the recurrence of FSGS after transplant? Consult with our online doctor for some medical suggestions.

Is there any alternative treatment to kidney transplant for FSGS? Immunotherapy is an effective treatment for FSGS and it can help the patients prevent the onset of transplant.

Immunotherapy treats diseases by using the body’s own immune system.It can help the body rebuild normal immune system and recover the self-healing ability of the body.In treating FSGS,it can stop the immune system from attacking kidneys to stop further damage to kidneys.Also,by recovering the self-healing ability of the body,the kidney tissues and cells will be regenerated.Hence, FSGS will be controlled fundamentally.
