How Are FSGS Stages divided

How is FSGS Stages dividedFSGS is the abbreviation of Focal Segmental Glomerulus Sclerosis. Comparing with other kidney diseases, FSGS is relatively rare, but it can cause severe damage in patient’s kidney, and this disease is very likely to cause patients to have kidney failure.

What is the pathogenesis of FSGS?

Focal Segmental Glomerulus Sclerosis mainly causes damage in patient’s glomeruli, and this disease has its obvious features.

Usually, for patients with FSGS, only some glomeruli in their kidney are damaged, and only part of each glomerulus is damaged. It seems this disease is not very severe, but in fact, this disease has bad reaction to many kinds of medicine treatments, and patient’s condition will progress slowly, which can cause kidney failure eventually.

How are FSGS stages divided?


FSGS is divided into five stages, and that is according to patient’s glomerular filtration rate (GFR), and this form is how it is divided.

Stage 1 Stage 2 Stage 3 Stage 4 Stage 5
90~125ml/min 60~89ml/min 30~59ml/min 15~30ml/min 0~15ml/min

The damage caused by FSGS mainly appears in glomeruli, so it can affect patient’s GFR directly. As the stage caused by FSGS goes further, it means more kidney function is damaged.

For patients who are in the early stage of FSGS, like stage 1 and 2, patients will not have many obvious symptoms. That is because our kidney has strong metabolic ability, and half kidney function will be able to guarantee our body health. In fact, with right treatment and appropriate nursing care, patient’s condition is able to be controlled in this stage.

Stage 3 is a moderate stage, and patients can have some obvious symptoms. In fact, if patient is in stage 3A, his prognosis is still relatively well. While, when patients are in the late stages, his condition will much worse, because many health problems can appear at this point. When patient is in stage 5, which is the end stage, patient will need dialysis to prolong his lifetime.

Thereby, patients with Focal Segmental Glomerulus Sclerosis should take measures to deal with their condition as early as possible. And if you have any trouble in this process, you can leave us a message. We will do what we can to help you.
