FSGS: Kidney Failed Again After Transplant

FSGS: Kidney Failed Again After TransplantDoctor: Hello, welcome to consult us. What can I do for you?

Patient: Nephew has FSGS. Kidney transplant is not working.

D: Does he have any symptoms?

P: New kidney biopsy shows FSGS. He had it when he was a child. Kidneys failed when he was 25. He is 36 now, just had a kidney transplant. That biopsy showed FSGS still. If it does not work, can you suggest a new way to fix this?

The above dialogue is between our online doctor and a visitor to our website. Considering that a number of FSGS patients have the similar problem, we share this article with you.

FSGS is short for focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. It has a poor prognosis, because once the glomeruli becomes harden, no treatment can revitalize it. That is why many FSGS patients develop to kidney failure quickly and then start dialysis or do kidney transplant to maintain their life. Compared to dialysis, kidney transplant is better, but for FSGS patients, it is usually not recommended. Do you know why? That is because FSGS recurs easily after transplant. Some researches show that there are 40% successful cases may present renal insufficiency after receiving kidney transplant in half a year. And due to rejection, the transplanted kidney has its own life span for about 5-15 years. After that, second transplant is needed.

However, if you still have normal urine output and your kidneys do not shrink too much, it is possible for you to avoid dialysis and kidney transplant. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we use Toxin-Removing Treatment. It is a systemic Chinese medicine treatment, which combines Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Navel Therapy, Mai Kang Mixture, oral Chinese medicine and so on to expel waste products from body, making internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application. It can also improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys to supply them with enough essential elements to speed up kidney recovery. Besides, it can regulate the abnormal immune system and strengthen immunity to protect your kidneys from being damaged. After about half month’s treatment, swelling and proteinuria will get relieved. After about one month’s treatment, your kidney function will increase.

It is common to see the transplanted kidney fails again for FSGS patients. If you do not want to experience recurrence, you should set up a good blood environment to protect your kidneys well. For more information on FSGS treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
