Taking Prednisone 60 mg for FSGS Patients

Taking Prednisone 60 mg for FSGS PatientsPrednisone is one type of corticosteroid, so it is commonly used to treat kidney disease related to immune disorder, and FSGS is just such one kidney disorder. To treat FSGS, doctors may prescribe prednisone 60 mg.

FSGS is one kidney disease that is found to have some immune complexes in scarred kidney cells. As one anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant medication, prednisone can inhibit the activity of immune complexes, so as to protect the remaining kidney functioning tissues and ease patients' symptoms and complications such as proteinuria and swelling.

However, because this medication works through weakening the immune system, it can cause some side effects easily. Low immune ability, infection, cold, fever, growth problem, bone disease, and so on, are common side effects of prednisone.

From the above analysis, FSGS patients should check whether they have the following problems before taking prednisone 60mg.

* Whether you are allergic to this medication or have any infection in your body

* If you have diarrhea, liver disease, a thyroid disorder, diabetes, malaria, etc

* If you are at a risk of tuberculosis, osteoporosis, stomach ulcers, depression, and so on.

Once you have one of the above problems, you should tell your doctor or nephrologist in advance, so you can take this medication safely and effectively.

When patients are unsatisfied about the effects of prednisone, they can try some systemic treatments like Immunotherapy and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. Both of these two treatments can help regulate the immune system and treat kidney disease from the root. As for which one is suitable for certain patients, it should depend on patients' illness condition.
