Alternative Treatment for FSGS Besides Steroids

2014-06-30 07:53


Question: My uncle has been diagnosed with FSGS. And the doctor has left the decision upon us as to whether we should go for steroid based treatment. Is steroid the only treatment available right now? What is the alternative one?


Answer: Steroids play an important role for FSGS in medicine, and as of now it is the most commonly used treatment method for patients with diagnosis of FSGS due to its quick treatment effects. But it is not the only treatment option in FSGS.

FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis) is the illness that can cause severe protein leakage in urine, fluid retention and many other clinical manifestations. Although these abnormal conditions appear due to kidney damages, if left uncontrolled, they will worsen kidney condition and accelerate FSGS to kidney failure. Steroids show great effects in bringing all the symptoms under control in short term. This help to slow down illness progression greatly, so steroids are firstly used by FSGS patients in many cases.

Steroids are helpful, but if used for a long time, it will cause many terrible side effects. For this reason, many FSGS patients refuse to take steroids. Actually, under such a condition, they can try herbal treatment-Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.

In FSGS, glomeruli are injured for some reasons and due to this problem, kidney fails to play filtration function, which finally lead to protein leakage in urine, fluid retention and some other clinical manifestations. Therefore, for FSGS patients, only when injured glomeruli are repaired, can kidney problem be solved fundamentally. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is just such a treatment method that can help to repair injured kidney tissues without using steroids. Besides, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy only works on patients who still have some kidney function, so FSGS patients should take treatment as soon as possible after the diagnosis.
