Dialysis and Kidney Transplant: Which One Is Better for FSGS Patients with GFR 22

Dialysis and Kidney Transplant: Which One Is Better for FSGS Patients with GFR 22Dialysis and kidney transplant are the two commonly used kidney replacement treatments for kidney failure patients. Which one is better? For FSGS patients, this is indeed a question, because FSGS has a high recurrence rate after transplant. In this article, let’s have a quick look.

First of all, I want to share a post with you. “Hi. My GFR is 22 and my doctor has stated that its time to put me on a transplant list. Needless to say, fear has overtaken me. Also I just read somewhere that the life expectancy of someone with FSGS on dialysis was less than 5 years!! I'm in tears. I also just read that with a transplant, FSGS can reoccur!! More tears now!! Can someone please provide their experience with dialysis and/or transplant? Thanks.”

Maybe this post also speaks out your mind, but actually it is unnecessary for you to have such a worry. GFR 22 is very low, but it is not low enough for you to start dialysis or kidney transplant. As long as you can preserve your residual renal function or even improve it, you can avoid both dialysis and kidney transplant. That is to say, you have alternatives to solve your kidney problem. Do not wait until there is only choice between dialysis and transplant.

Alternatives for FSGS patients with GFR 22

In our hospital, we improve the conventional treatment and make a systemic treatment, which not only help you control symptoms, but also improve renal function. This treatment is Toxin-Removing Treatment, also known as Detoxification Therapy. It makes use of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy and so on to eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body via urine, sweat and bowel movement. It can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys to improve renal ischemia and anoxia. In addition, it can suppress renal inflammation and halt the disease from getting worse.

After about one week’s treatment, swelling will vanish. After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria will be reduced, and high creatinine, urea and uric acid level will be decreased. After about one month’s treatment, FSGS will be under control, and renal function will get improved. With treatment going on, you can reinforce the effect so as to keep dialysis and kidney transplant away.

All in all, for FSGS patients with GFR 22, other than dialysis and kidney transplant, there is alternative treatment to improve renal function. For more information on FSGS treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.

Hope the above information is helpful for you. If you have any other questions on kidney disease or want to get more personalized and professional treatment suggestions, please leave a message below.
