Can Prednisone Treat Protein In Urine With FSGS

Can Prednisone Treat Protein In Urine With FSGSFSGS refers to Focal Segmental Glomerulus Sclerosis, which is a kidney disease that can cause damage in patient’s glomeruli. While glomeruli have the function of keeping the nutrients in our body, so its damage can lead to the nutrients leaking out through urine, which is also known as proteinuria.

Proteinuria is a dangerous condition, which can aggravate patient’s kidney damage severely. In fact, there are many medicines effective in treating proteinuria, like prednisone.

In fact, FSGS is a kidney disease which is very likely to cause nephrotic syndrome, while the complete remission rate in adults of hormone treatment is about 42%, and for many patients, this treatment brings no obvious improvement to their condition.

Thereby, prednisone is a medicine which is often used in treating FSGS, but whether it has effect all depends, so it is better for patients to find other alternative treatment.
