How to deal with IgA Nephropathy with FSGS2013-10-16 11:55
According to LEE’s classification, IgA Nephropathy can be divided into five stages, and the second stage is called Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). Without prompt treatment in second stage, some patients will progressively develop into kidney failure. Then how to deal with IgA Nephropathy with FSGS?
Before we talk about the treatment, let’s have a general knowledge about what happens in this disease so that we can take corresponding treatment methods.
Each kidney contains about one million of tiny filters, known as glomeruli. They can keep the necessary cells and protein in the blood while filtering waste products from the blood into the urine. For IgA Nephropathy patients with FSGS, the kidney’s glomeruli become scarred, so they can not filter waste, excess water and electrolytes from your blood that can lead protein to leak into the urine instead of staying in the blood. Also, waste products and fluid build up in your body. This can cause complications, such as high blood pressure.
If the kidneys are severely affected, they may no longer work. This is known as kidney failure. It is reported that about half of patients will have renal failure. A fast-moving type can cause kidney failure in 2-3 years, but for most, it takes 5-20 years.
As for the treatment, there are three kinds: dietary therapy, medical therapy including western medicine and Chinese medicine, and surgery therapy including kidney transplant.
For dietary therapy, you should pay attention to diet in the daily to choose what to eat and what not to eat. If you don’t have a healthy diet plan, you can ask help from online doctor.
For western medicine, it has effects on easing patients’ symptoms and complications, but its side effects can not be avoided. Kidney transplant is not encouraged if your kidneys do not fail completely. In view of this, we recommend immunotherapy, which is an advanced treatment in treating kidney disease in the world. It can penetrate the finely-shattered herbal medicine into kidneys to repair damaged renal intrinsic cells and rebuild the normal kidney structure. Moreover, it can improve immune system. In one word, it can help your damaged kidneys recover and work properly.
