FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome Not Responding to Steroid

FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome Not Responding to SteroidFSGS is one common cause of Nephrotic Syndrome in teenager. Patients who suffer from FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome are more likely to not respond to steroid. Are there any other therapies to treat this kidney disease?

The prognosis of Nephrotic Syndrome due to FSGS

Firstly, we should know the prognosis of FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome isn't as good as that caused by MCD or mild mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis. According to clinical research, ten years of renal survival rate is more than 90% if patients respond to steroid. Otherwise, the survival rate is only 40%. From this point, patients who fail to respond to steroid should take other treatments timely.

The causes of FSGS

Since FSGS is the direct cause of Nephrotic Syndrome, the underlying cause of FSGS should be detected. After finding out it, we can adopt corresponding treatments to manage it. As introduced by Nephrologists, FSGS patients' kidney scarring has a close link with deposits of immune complexes. The inflammatory reactions caused by immune complexes lead to renal anoxia and ischemia condition. Finally, kidney functioning tissues are scarred. When patients' protein in urine is more than 3.5g/24h, it presents the form of Nephrotic Syndrome.

Effective treatments to manage FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome

According to the description of underlying cause, we would like to recommend Immunotherapy, which has a great superiority on removing immune complexes, repairing damaged kidney filtering structure and preventing the relapse of FSGS. As long as FSGS is managed from the root, protein leakage will decline naturally. That is to say, Nephrotic Syndrome becomes under control.

To strengthen the therapeutic effects of Immunotherapy, some auxiliary therapies may also be needed such as Medicated Bath, Acupuncture, Hot Compression, and so on. A systemic treatment plan can make these patients live with their own kidneys safely. To get individual treatment option, you can email your illness description to or leave a message below.
