FSGS, Kidney Function 39%: About Kidney Transplant

Question: My son has FSGS, he is 35yrs old and one of his kidney is failing. It is currently functioning at 39% and he was told that he would need a transplant. My family is seeking additional information so that we can began to search within our family to find a match. Is there any thing else we need to know?

FSGS, Kidney Function 39%: About Kidney TransplantAnswer: You said he had 39% kidney function. It is too early to consider kidney transplant. His kidneys can still be well repaired and the kidney function can be improved.

FSGS is a kind of autoimmune disease with IgM and C3 deposited in the kidneys. The immune complex will cause inflammation in the kidneys and start renal fibrosis gradually. For this disease, Immunotherapy is the best choice.

The whole treatment contains mainly 6 steps:

Step 1: Scientific tests. Only if we make everything clear of the disease can we treat it targetedly and effectively. Though patients are all diagnosed with FSGS, the antibodies level and amount and position of different kinds of immune complex are different with different patients. We should also know clearly the damage to tubules and glomeruli. Therefore, some tests have to be done for guiding the treatment. Tests of beta 2 microglobin, Cystatin C, homocysteine and retinol binding protein are also necessary.

Step 2: Blocking immune reaction. According to scientific diagnosis, the medicine, dose and duration will be very exact. Scientific use of immunosuppressants will well control the immune reaction in the kidneys.

Step 3: Immune tolerance. As the disease often relapses, we have to assess the disease condition before inflammation in the kidneys becomes serious again. Giving small dose of immunosuppressants regularly can prevent the relapse of the disease. This is to let our body accept the fact that there is immune complex in the kidneys and the antibodies will stop attacking them temporarily.

Step 4: Immune regulation. The immune complex cannot always stay in our kidneys, so we have to remove it out sooner or later. Micro-Chinese medicine can invigorate blood circulation and remove blood stasis thus increasing the blood flow in the kidneys. The special material in the Chinese medicine will combine with the immune complex and take it out of body through blood circulation. We can see floc-like things discharged out in urine after 7 days of the treatment. At the same time, oral taking medicine will be used to strengthen the immunity and nourish blood and qi.

Step 5: Immune protection. For the damaged and remaining inherent cells and tissues, we have to repair them and recover the kidney function. Glucocorticoid, oral taking Chinese medicine and Treg cells injection will play key roles in this step. Stem cells which can differentiate into new functional cells will help recover the kidney function. Active material in Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can regulate the immune system and recover the self renewal of the body.

Step 6: Immune clearance. Actually this step runs through the above four steps. Immunoadsorption can effectively remove the toxic things in the body and control the disease in the shortest time so that we can win time in repairing the kidneys. Only by controlling the acute progressing of the disease can we repair the kidneys well.

Now you know that for FSGS patients with kidney function 39%, it is unnecessary for them to do kidney transplant. What they should do is to start treatment as early as possible to preserve the remaining renal function.
