What is the prognosis of FSGS in 20 year old male with gross proteinuria? If you also have the similar doubt, go on reading to learn more information.
Though proteinuria does not bring you any uncomfortable feeling, you should pay attention to it.
Gross proteinuria means your kidneys become leaky so that protein can not be retained in body. If you can not block the holes timely, more protein will go out of body. It does not only speed up glomerulosclerosis to impair your kidney function and speed up the progression to kidney failure, but also weakens your immunity. And then it is likely for you to get infections. If the infection is very severe, you die of it. Therefore, you should lower your proteinuria timely.
How to reduce proteinuria for FSGS patients?
Steroids and immunosuppressants are the most commonly used treatment for FSGS patients to inhibit kidney inflammation and reduce protein leakage. In short-term, they are helpful, but in the long run, they have a lot of side effects. Therefore, once your disease is brought under control, you can try some systemic Chinese medicine, such as Toxin-Removing Treatment. It takes advantage of Chinese medicine therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, Circle Therapy and oral Chinese medicine to remove massive waste products from body to make internal environment clean for kidney self-healing. It can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys to improve renal ischemia and anoxia. Besides, it can supply the damaged kidneys with enough essential elements to speed up kidney recovery. After about one week’s treatment, your urine output will increase, with which wastes products are passed out of body, so your urine will look cloudy and smell bad. After about half month’s treatment, your swelling will disappear, and your proteinuria will decrease. After about one month’s treatment, your proteinuria will turn negative, and your kidney function will be strengthened. And then you can lead a normal life.
