Upto Which Extend Kidney Transplant Is Successful in FSGS

Upto Which Extend Kidney Transplant Is Successful in FSGSKidney transplant is a treatment option for FSGS patients with kidney failure. But FSGS has a high recurrence rate after transplant. Upto which extent kidney transplant is successful in FSGS? Read on to learn more information.

The risk of FSGS returning in the transplanted kidney varies from 20-50%. Here are some risk factors that put FSGS patients at higher risk of recurrence of FSGS.

-young age (< 15 years old)

-it took you less than 3 years from the time the FSGS was found in your original kidneys to reach kidney failure.

-the appearance of certain cells on your original kidney biopsy

-caucasian (white) race

-you lost a previous kidney transplant to a return of FSGS

Usually a return of FSGS in the transplant occurs very soon after the surgery. The FSGS can return within hours to days. Most episodes will be within the first year after transplant.

How to increase the successful rate of transplant for FSGS patients?

The studies found that the recurrence of FSGS after transplant is associated with the circulating cytokines. If you can clear them away before transplant, the recurrence rate will be reduced greatly. In western medicine, there is plasma exchange, immune absorption and so on to help you do it. In Chinese medicine, there is Toxin-Removing Treatment. This is a systemic treatment. If you still produce urine, it is even helpful for you to improve renal function.

This is a systemic treatment, which is composed of 9 therapies. Those therapies can work together to eliminate waste products and extra fluid from the blood via urine, sweat and bowel movement. They can also restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse. Moreover, they can increase blood flow into kidneys and improve blood circulation so that essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery.

After about one week’s treatment, swelling will be reduced, and you will see floccules in urine, which are those wastes being passed out.

After about half month’s treatment, high creatinine, urea and uric acid level will be reduced.

After about one month’s treatment, your internal environment of body will be improved greatly, and it is likely for you to improve renal function.

Upto which extent kidney transplant is successful in FSGS? Now you get the answer. But the above treatment is not suitable for all patients. For specific treatment recommendations, please consult a physician.
