FSGS stands from Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis. It is a severe form of Nephrotic Syndrome. Without a cure, both the kidneys will stop working and the affected person will need to spend the rest of life having to be hooked to a Dialysis machine, for many hours, nearly every day. Even a kidney transplantatation may not make patients better, as FSGS can also attack transplanted kidneys.
The risk of FSGS recurring in the new transplanted kidney varies from
20%~50%. Usually, the relapse occurs very soon after the surgery, within hours
to days. In most cases, this will be within the first year after kidney
Factors that increase the risk of recurrence of the disease are as
* Young age (<15 years old);
* Primary FSGS develops into Renal Failure rapidly within 3 years;
* Presence of certain cell on the original kidney biopsy;
* Lost a previous kidney transplant.
Unfortunately, no treatments currently existed can treat recurring FSGS in
the transplanted kidneys successfully. When the disease does come back, over 50%
patients will lose the kidney within 5 years. About 15% of patients with FSGS
will lose the kidney due to the recurrence of the disease in a transplanted
From the above analysis, we can know that the outcome of kidney
transplantation is not satisfactory. Individuals with FSGS should adopt prompt
treatment in the early stage so as to prevent the progressing.
For patients who are still looking for natural treatment for this kidney
disease, we'd like to introduce the latest achievements make by Shijiazhuang
Kidney Disease Hospital, one of the largest kidney disease specialized hospital
in the world.
Based on the history of more than twenty years' expertise in treating FSGS, a
new holistic therapy has been developed in 2012. We call it "Immunotherapy".
With prompt treatment, many patients from home and abroad has improve
significantly. In some cases, they can even avoid the need for a kidney dialysis
or kidney transplant.
