How Does Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) Treat FSGS Kidney Disease

In recent years, some patients with FSGS kidney disease begin to pay their attention to low dose naltrexone (LDN), when they reacted poorly to steroids and cyclosporine. Some patients indeed get some benefits from this medicine, while some others don't. If you are also interested about this medicine, you can learn about LDN for FSGS patients here.

Therefore, doctors usually prescribe steroids or cyclosporine to suppress patients’ immune system, in order to curb inflammatory reactions. However, these medicines don’t work for all FSGS patients. What’s worse, these medicines may cause a series of side effects easily.
