What Is The Alternative to Prednisone for FSGS

The Alternative to Prednisone for FSGS“It seems that I have to live with prednisone forever because of my FSGS, but I am tired of fighting against its side effects so that I am looking from alternatives to prednisone for FSGS patients.” One patient talked with our online doctor yesterday.

Since many people have a similar trouble, we invite kidney experts from Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital to give out the answer.

What is prednisone?

As we know, the main therapeutic effect of prednisone is anti-inflammation and reducing the permeability of capillary walls and cytomembrane. For FSGS, prednisone can help inhibit inflammatory reactions within kidneys and prevent protein from leaking out. Therefore, prednisone can slow down the aggravation of FSGS, ease proteinuria and swelling, and so on.

The alternatives to prednisone for FSGS patients

According to the therapeutic effects of prednisone, alternative therapies should also have the above effects or more. Several medications and therapies do help achieve this goal.

Immunosuppressants: Just like steroid, immunosuppressants work through reducing patients’ immune system, so the deposits of immune complexes cause inflammatory reactions difficultly. However, it can also cause many side effects such as infections, high blood pressure, bone disease, liver damage, hair loss, damage to sexual function, and so on.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: As one innovation of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), this external application has the effects of anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, expanding blood vessels, dissolving immune complexes and rebuilding kidney structure, and it has nearly no side effects.

Immunotherapy: This therapy just focuses on treating chronic kidney disease caused by immune disorder. Through regulating immune system, repairing damaged kidney cells and removing immune complexes, it is worth a try.

As for which therapy is best for certain patient, it should depend on patients’ illness condition. To learn more about these alternative therapies, you can contact the doctor online.
