Expert Answer

You said you have already had focal segmental glomerulonephritis(FSGS) for 8 years now, but there is no improvements. This is not good because you know, when it is fsgs, there are only part of the glomeruli get sclerosed, but with its developments without any good control, the whole glomeruli may get sclerosed, and more part of the kidneys will get damaged. When it develops to this stage, it will be hard to control, any hormones, like prednisone, or some cyclophosphamide, cellcept will not take effects.

For FSGS, we need to treat it from the root of the disease, to repair the damaged cells, and improve the kidney function. Or you know, you are only 19 years old now, if this condition continues to develop, your creatinine level will increase, and kidney function will decline, then you may need to start dialysis or even kidney transplant. So if you current treatments are not taking any effects, we suggest you start some other treatments.
