Is FSGS Deadly for Most People

Is FSGS Deadly for Most PeopleFSGS is the abbreviation of focal segmental glomerular sclerosis. Most cases of FSGS present progressive, and most patients finally have Kidney Failure, while only a few patients’ FSGS progresses quickly and they have kidney failure early. Then, once one person is diagnosed with FSGS, he or she must wonder whether FSGS is deadly for most people.

The answer is complicated. Some FSGS patients can still live normally with 100% kidney function, while some other patients eventually have kidney failure and die of kidney failure or its complications. From this point, FSGS is indeed deadly for a part of patients but not the most.

We can surely tell you that if you have FSGS kidney disease and take treatment timely, you can still have more chance to reverse your kidney damage and prevent deadly complications. Of course, the treatment should depend on the causes.

Many conditions can cause FSGS including poisoning damage, humoral immunity changes, inherited tendency and hemodynamic changes. All of these disorders can damage capillary walls, leading large molecular protein, immunoglobulin, to deposit. Then, they combine with C1q and C3 to form immune complexes and build up in kidneys, resulting in renal scarring. Finally, FSGS occurs.

As FSGS kidney disease is due to abnormal immune system and circulatory system, Immunotherapy is worth a try to prevent FSGS from inducing life-threatening complications or deadly problems. According to the characteristics of FSGS, Immunotherapy consists of six steps. This therapy can not only eliminate immune complexes from the body but also regulate immune system and repair impaired kidney cells. Therefore, kidney function or glomerular filtration rate can be improved largely.

In summary

Even though FSGS kidney disease is fatal in some cases, effective and timely treatments can help patients to avoid this bad prognosis. The only thing you need to do is to cooperate your nephrologist. If you still have anything unclear, welcome to consult our doctor online.
