My FSGS Comes Back After Kidney Transplant

My name is Heitor from Brazil and I am 21 years old. I was diagnosed with Focal Segmental Glomerulonephritis at age of 8. I firstly presented with leg swelling and went to see nephrologist who performed a renal biopsy and I was conformed with FSGS.

I was only prescribed with some hormone and immunosuppressive drugs. However, they did not work very well. My doctor told me that I had nothing to do except to wait for the worsening of my renal function until my kidneys failed completely.

In 2009, I started hemodialysis. However, during the process, I experienced serious infections, fluctuating blood pressure etc and then I had to transfer to peritoneal dialysis.

In January 2010, I performed a renal transplantation, but it only last for one year because the returning of the disease. Now I am back on dialysis and waiting for my second renal transplantation. My doctor told me there is some problem with my immune system, but transplantation can not change it. I am afraid my new kidney may fail again after my second renal transplantation. I am wondering if there is an alternative therapy for FSGS.

Doctor Sayings: FSGS is an immune-mediated disorder, in which your immune system attacks the healthy renal tissues and cells mistakenly. Renal transplantation can deliver you normal renal function, but it is not able to correct the immune dysregulation. After renal transplantation, the immune system may attack the new kidney again, thus resulting in new kidney failure.

To treat FSGS fundamentally, the therapy should not only focus on correcting the immune system, but also restoring the impaired kidney tissues.

Immunotherapy as a brand-new therapy in kidney disease treatment filed and brings extraordinary promising for the patients with FSGS. It including different ways of immunotherapy:

Monoclonal antibody

Blood purification

Chinese herbal medicine

Immunotherapy can regulate the immune system as well as rebuild the damaged kidney. Thus, the patients can get a complete recovery without FSGS reoccurence. Hope this is helpful for you.
