Will I Need Kidney Transplant If I Have FSGS

Will I Need Kidney Transplant If I Have FSGSFocal segment glomerular sclerosis (FSGS) is a major kind of kidney disease, which mainly causes damage in patient’s glomeruli.

FSGS is a disease that is very likely to cause nephrotic syndrome, which is a very severe state for patients with kidney disease. And if patients’ condition has not been well controlled, they can have kidney failure eventually.
