What Is FSGS Life Expectancy

What Is FSGS Life Expectancy  The appearance rate of focal segmental glomerular sclerosis (FSGS) is relatively low comparing with other kidney diseases, but FSGS is a kidney disease which can cause severe damage to patients’ kidney.

Most patients with kidney disease are curious about their life expectancy, so is patients with FSGS. Thereby, what is the life expectancy of FSGS? How can it be improved?

What is FSGS life expectancy?

FSGS mainly causes damage in patients’ glomeruli, and it is a major kind of kidney disease which can cause nephrotic syndrome. As we know, nephrotic syndrome is a very dangerous condition for patients with kidney disease, and if patients have other complications or health problems, their life expectancy will be much worse.

On the other hand, FSGS progresses slowly, and it needs a long time for patients to have kidney failure. If patient can find his disease when he is in the early stage, and if patient can accept right treatment and appropriate nursing caring, patients’ condition may even be well controlled, and avoid kidney failure.

The average onset age of FSGS is 21, and most patients may need 5 to 20 years to have kidney failure. While when patients have kidney failure, they will need dialysis or kidney transplant to prolong their lifetime.

How can the life expectancy of FSGS be improved?

For patients with FSGS, their life expectancy is decided by many factors.

FSGS often causes nephrotic syndrome, which is very dangerous for patients with kidney disease, because massive proteinuria and too much blood fat are very bad for patients’ kidney function and overall health. If nephrotic syndrome has not been well controlled, patients’prognosis will be much worse.

Besides, some complication caused by FSGS can also worsen patients’ prognosis greatly, like hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, high blood fat, etc. Patients’ life habits can also affect patients’ life expectancy obviously, like tiredness, much sodium intake, etc.

Thereby, if FSGS patients want to improve their prognosis, they should improve their life habits. It is important for them to find their disease as early as possible, because patient’s condition can be controlled much easier when he is in the early stage.

Besides, choosing right treatment and nursing care is also an important aspect. FSGS has poor reaction to most treatments, but treatments combine chinese medicine and western medicine will be perfect choice.
