FSGS, CKD Stage 5,Creatinine 6.1: What to Treat It

Topics: FSGS High Creatinine Level

Details: I am a FSGS patient currently with CKD Stage 5 and creatinine 6.1. I hope to find an effective therapy to manage my illness condition.

Expert Answer

Although FSGS in some cases can get complete remission spontaneously, some patients with FSGS do have kidney failure also called Stage 5 CKD finally. At stage 5 chronic kidney disease, kidneys have been damaged severely. In this case, patients should take some therapies to replace kidneys to work or repair damaged kidney cells.

To maintain patients' basic life, dialysis is helpful. As we know, the main kidney function is to purify blood and remove waste products and toxins. Dialysis, both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, just can help damaged kidneys to filter their blood and prolong their life expectancy.

Stage 5 chronic kidney disease means FSGS has progressed into end stage, at which kidneys are only functioning at 15% or less. If patients still have certain kidney function and urine output, dialysis or kidney transplant shouldn't be the only choices for patients with CKD Stage 5.

Until now, Immunotherapy and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has been used again and again for treating FSGS kidney disease. Different treatments are suitable for different patients. To determine which therapy is better for you, you can have a further talk with doctor online.
