How to Build My Immune System up with FSGS

Question: I have FSGS. My local doctors have had me on medicines that have lowered my immunity, such as prednisone and cellcept, which I’m weaning off. So I need to know how to build my immune system up.

How to Build My Immune System up with FSGSAnswer: Prednisone and cellcept are helpful for you to reduce proteinuria, but they are to suppress you immune system to reduce inflammatory reaction in your kidneys. Once your immune system is compromised, it is likely for you to catch infections, such as skin infections and respiratory tract infections. In severe cases, you may have pneumonia. Infections can trigger the relapse of disease and even threaten your life. The most powerful way to resist infections is to boost your immune system.

Treatment to build immune system up with FSGS

In the daily, doing some gentle exercises and supplementing vitamins are helpful for you to boost your immunity. You can also adjust your attitude. Keeping positive attitude can also help you fight against the disease bravely.

In addition, you can try systemic Chinese medicine. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, Toxin-Removing Treatment is often used. It takes advantage of various Chinese medicine therapies such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Navel Therapy, Moxibustion and so on to remove massive waste products and fluid out of body to make internal environment clean for kidney self-healing and other medication application. It can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into damaged kidneys to speed up kidney recovery. After several days’ treatment, swelling will disappear. After about half month’s treatment, your proteinuria will decrease. After one month’s treatment, FSGS will be under control. With treatment going on, your immunity will be strengthened to help you resist the disease and reduce its relapse.
