How Long Do Patients with FSGS Live

How Long Do Patients with FSGS LiveFocal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a relatively common form of kidney disease. How long do patients with FSGS live? If you are wondering such a question, go on reading.

If not treated, most FSGS patients will eventually develop complete renal failure and require dialysis or a kidney transplant to survive. Even with treatment, many patients will still eventually require dialysis. How long this will take varies widely (2-20 years), and is difficult to predict. The appearance of your kidney biopsy under the microscope may give your doctor some idea of the time frame. But generally speaking, kidney patients won’t die of kidney disease, but its associated complications, such as heart failure and infections. Therefore, what you should do is to prevent its complications.

Treatment for FSGS

You may think of steroids and immunosuppressants when referring to FSGS treatment. But here I do not recommend. Because this treatment can only help you get temporary medical relief. If you want to get permanent control of FSGS, you can try Toxin-Removing Treatment.

This is a systemic Chinese medicine treatment, which includes Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Cycle Therapy, etc. It can eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body via urine, bowel movement and sweat. It can also dissolve stasis and dispel it from blood vessels to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, amino acids, enzymes, active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. After about one week’s treatment, you will see floccules in urine. And swelling will fade away. After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria will decrease or even vanish. After about one month’s treatment, FSGS will be under control, and renal function will be improved gradually. With the promotion of renal function, all associated complications will be relieved, and then your life won’t be threatened, and you can lead a normal and full life.

How long do patients with FSGS live? If you can control the disease very well and reduce its complications, you can lead a full life. For more information on FSGS treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor. We can give you some personalized guidance.
