The Specific Function of Hormones for FSGS Patients

The Specific Function of Hormones for FSGS PatientsHormones are the most commonly used drugs for FSGS patients, but do you know its specific function?

The hormones used in FSGS are glucocorticoids, which are actually secreted by the kidneys themselves. When the kidney is damaged, hormone secretion is insufficient, so you need oral hormone to supplement.

What does hormones do?

It mainly inhibits the inflammatory response, which is actually the process of the body's immune cells' phagocytosis of foreign body. These foreign bodies mainly include bacteria, viruses and substances produced by the body's own metabolism.

What are the benefits of suppressing inflammation?

This is because inflammation produces large amounts of immune complexes, which are formed when the immune cells swallow "foreign bodies" and deposit in the kidneys, causing damage to the kidney cells.

Hormones can reduce urinary protein, because most of the production of urinary protein is caused by an inflammatory response.

Note that hormones may inhibit the inflammatory response, but to reduce proteinuria, you should repair the damaged kidneys. That is why FSGS patients with simply hormone treatment get relapses frequently.

Alternatives to hormones for FSGS patients

In Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, we usually use a systemic treatment for FSGS, such as Toxin-Removing Treatment. This treatment is composed of 9 therapies. Those therapies can work together to restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse. They can also eliminate immune complexes and other waste products from the blood to keep internal environment clean. Moreover, they can improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients, active ingredients of medicine and so on can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery.

After about one week’s treatment, swelling will fade away.

After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria will be reduced.

After about one month’s treatment, FSGS will be under control, and renal function will get improved.
