Question: My son was diagnosed with collapsing FSGS on November 20. He has been hospitalized 5 times for diarrhea and vomiting. He is in stage 2 to 3 renal failure. He is currently in the hospital. His creatinine goes up and down. Could this be caused by the FSGS?
Answer: FSGS is a kind of kidney disease difficult to treat. You said your son has been hospitalized 5 times for diarrhea and vomiting. Does he get infections frequently? Infections can make his condition relapse. As to his fluctuating creatinine level, it is closely related with his FSGS.
Creatinine level is an indicator of kidney function. When it goes up, it means kidney function declines. And when it is down, it means kidney function improves. Therefore, it means your son’s condition is not stable. Once his kidney damage is permanent, his creatinine level won’t go down any more. If so, the treatment difficulty will increase.
How to stabilize FSGS and prevent it relapse?
Conventional treatment is to apply steroids and immunosuppressants into FSGS to reduce protein leakage and prevent it from developing quickly. This is helpful in short-term, but it can make his immunity worse so that he catches infections easily, thereby in the long run, you had better choose some alternatives to help him.
