FSGS: Can I Be Treated by Steroids

Question: Last March I had kidney biopsy then the result was focal segmental glomerulonephritis (FSGS). I was taking medication now like prednisone. I want to know if I can be treated by steroids?

FSGS: Can I Be Treated by SteroidsAnswer: Steroids are a general term describing many medicines, including prednisone, prednisolone, methylprednisolone, etc. You said you were taking prednisone, so now you are treated by steroids. But for FSGS patients, steroid-resistance often occurs. How long have you taken those medications? How is the effect? If Nephrotic Syndrome still presents after about 4 months’ treatment, you should reduce the dosage quickly and stop them within 4-6 weeks, meanwhile, you should combine immunosuppressants, such as CsA to halt the progression of FSGS. Because those medications usually have a lot of side effects. And it is easy for you to get relapse. Here we recommend you to try a systemic Chinese medicine treatment.

Toxin-Removing Treatment for FSGS

It includes Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Cycle Therapy, Steam Therapy, Navel Therapy, etc. It can eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body to make internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application. It can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to ensure blood flow fluent, and then essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients, active ingredients of medicine and so on can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, it can regulate the abnormal immune system to fight against the disease. After about one week’s treatment, swelling will disappear. After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria will be relieved or even turn negative. After about one month’s treatment, your FSGS will be under control. With treatment going on, your kidney condition and immune system get strengthened, and then you can reduce the relapse of FSGS greatly. Because Chinese medicine does not have any side effects, it can be used for a long-term.

FSGS can be treated by steroids, but this is only a temporary medical relief. If you want to control it well and reduce the relapse as much as possible, you can try Toxin-Removing Treatment. For more information on FSGS treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
