What Else Treatment Besides Steroids for FSGS


What Else Treatment Besides Steroids for FSGS“I have FSGS. The doctors me want to do prednisone treatment for 6 months. I do not like it. What else treatment besides steroids for FSGS?” If you are also worrying about the side effects of steroids in the long run, go on reading this article. It will give you some ways out.

Steroids are to inhibit kidney inflammation and stop protein leakage to reduce further kidney damage, but their disadvantage is that there are so many side effects. Because their advantages outweigh disadvantage in FSGS treatment in short term, they are preferred by many doctors.

In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we also use steroids for FSGS, but they are only adjuvant treatment. Chinese medicine is the main treatment, which can not only help counteract the side effects of steroids, but also help you get a better effect. Toxin-Removing Treatment is the most commonly used systemic Chinese medicine treatment. It can take advantage of a variety of Chinese medicine such as steam therapy, enema therapy, cycle therapy, medicated bath and so on to remove massive waste products out of body via your urine, stool and sweat. It can also remove toxins that block the blood flow so as to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys. In such a way, essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into damaged kidneys to help them recover quickly. After about one week’s treatment, your swelling will vanish. After about half month’s treatment, your proteinuria will decrease. After about one month’s treatment, your kidney function will improve. With the gradual improvement of your kidney condition, you can reduce steroid intake and eventually avoid its intake.
