FSGS Kidney Disease in Children
FSGS (focal segmental glomerular sclerosis) is one type of nephrotic syndrome that impacts people’s kidneys. Some studies show that 14.4% of the renal dialysis patients have this disease. It is also the second leading cause of kidney failure in children. In order to save more children from the bad result of FSGS, a new treatment—immunotherapy is introduced for parents.
FSGS in children
FSGS is caused by a disordered immune system. When children keep an unhealthy diet or life style, their immunity system is easy to lower down and they may get infections heedlessly. Viruses, germs or other harmful substances attack the body and antibodies released by immune system can defend them to form immune complexes. In healthy people, the immune complexes can be removed by immune cells—phagocyte. However, the children’s immune system is broken and cannot provide enough cells to bring them away.
In this way, immune complexes will deposit in kidney tissues and arouse a new immunoreaction to hurt kidney tissues. We all known that kidney is the main organ to filter excess water, salt as well as product wastes. The kidneys in body have millions of glomeruli whose main function is filtration. FSGS refers to patients have lost about 50% of glomeruli and half of kidney function has been gone by the renal inflammation. Over time, serious illness condition, such as renal failure, would occur along with more and more tissues are hardened.
How to treat FSGS in children?
In order to avoid further illness condition, children need to receive a suitable treatment. Immunotherapy focuses all the methods on immune system regulation. FSGS begins with disordered immune system, so it also can be end of a good immunity. Immunotherapy adopts Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and oral Chinese medicine. The former one can degrade the immune complexes and discharge them through urine. And the later one is used to balance all the organs and tissue to achieve a good internal environment. In this way, immune system can be regained and the damaged cells can turn to normal and function well. As a result, it would get a well treatment for FSGS kidney disease in children.
