Question: I have FSGS. My local doctors have had me on medicines that have lowered my immunity, such as prednisone and cellcept, which I’m weaning off. So I need to know how to build my immune system up.
Answer: Prednisone and cellcept are helpful for you to reduce proteinuria, but they are to suppress you immune system to reduce inflammatory reaction in your kidneys. Once your immune system is compromised, it is likely for you to catch infections, such as skin infections and respiratory tract infections. In severe cases, you may have pneumonia. Infections can trigger the relapse of disease and even threaten your life. The most powerful way to resist infections is to boost your immune system.
