Why FSGS Relapse Even After Kidney Transplant

Why FSGS Relapse Even After Kidney TransplantWhen FSGS aggravates into end stage, patients may pin their health hope on kidney transplant. However, although some patients accepted one kidney transplant, their FSGS relapses again. Do you know why?

FSGS and Kidney Transplant

FSGS refers to focal segmental glomerular sclerosis. Focal means only a part of glomeruli are damaged, while segmental indicates some glomerular lobules are impaired. Thereby, FSGS is one kidney disease in which kidney filters are involved gradually.

When kidney function is less than 20%, patients may be suggested to recommend kidney transplant. If enough fortunately, patients will have matched kidney source and accept kidney transplant smoothly.

Why FSGS relapse after transplant?

It is reported that FSGS has a close link with immune disorder, and this disease also has familial aggregations. Patients’ immune system is still abnormal post kidney transplant. When the immune complexes build up in the transplanted kidney again, FSGS is more likely to relapse.

How high is the recurrent rate of FSGS post kidney transplant?

Among various types of chronic kidney disease, the recurrent rate of FSGS is relatively high. Some clinical researches have claimed that if the receptor and donator has the same MHC, the relapse rate is 82%, and if not, the relapse rate is 35%~53%. In view of so high recurrent rate, doctors won’t recommend FSGS patients to do kidney transplant, once they still have other options.

Alternative therapies to kidney transplant for FSGS patients

After many years’ research, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is used widely to swallow pathogenic factors and increase the blood flow into kidneys, so as to prompt the recovery of glomeruli and change the structure of impaired kidneys. Once patients’ kidney function keeps higher than 20% and maintains stable, patients can avoid kidney transplant successfully.

Remember that you are not alone, if you have FSGS kidney disease. Many kidney experts in Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital are always here to give you the best treatment option and the biggest help.
