Question: I have focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. GFR jumped from 19 to 11 to 17. What causes the fluctuation in this? I have read that once the damage is done, it can not be undone, true?
Answer: Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis is called FSGS for short. That is true that once the damage is done, no treatment can revitalize it. But before the glomeruli become scarred, they usually go through three stages, that is, intact stage, inflammation stage and fibrosis formation stage. If you can not stop the progression, they will go into scarring stage. In the first three stages, appropriate treatment can help you restore a portion of kidney function. That is why your GFR increases. What treatment do you receive in these days? Is it a little different from that one days ago?
Now what you should do is to reinforce the effect and then it is possible for you to restore more renal function.
FSGS is a kidney disease associated with the deposition of immune complexes on the glomeruli. In Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, systemic Chinese medicine is often used for such a condition. It is Toxin-Removing Treatment, composed of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Cycle Therapy, Moxibustion, etc. It can expel waste products including those immune complexes and excess fluid out of body to make internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application. It can also decompose the deposited immune complexes and remove them out of kidneys. Besides, it can dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys to supply them with enough essential elements to speed up kidney recovery. After about one week’s treatment, you will see floccules in urine, which are those immune complexes. After about half month’s treatment, your high creatinine, high BUN and high uric acid level will go down. After about one month’s treatment, your disease will be under control, and your renal function will start to increase.
The fluctuation of GFR means your disease is not well-controlled. If you want to stabilize the condition, a better treatment is needed. For more information on FSGS treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
