2014-09-28 09:10

Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Due to FSGSFSGS, which stands for Focal Segmental Glomerulonephritis, is a kidney disease that characterized by glomeruli damage. With time goes by, kidney damage aggravates. Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease due to FSGS is a serious condition that should draw your high attention.

How serious Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease with FSGS?

In clinic, Chronic Kidney Disease is divided into five stages. Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease means the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) ranges from 15ml/min to 30ml/min with severely kidney damage. As a result, patients with Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease may experience symptoms such as:

♦ Swelling

Damaged glomeruli cannot perform their jobs adequately. As a result, water retention occurs in various parts of the body, including: eyelids hands, abdomen, legs, hands, feet, ankles, etc.

The swelling may be painful and always cause weight gain.

♦ Changes in urine

You may have foamy or bubbly urine due to large amount of protein leakage in the urine, which is called “proteinuria”;

You may also have a urgent and frequent urination with less amount, especially at night;

Blood in urine can be founded, too.

♦ Digestive problems

A poor appetite, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea are likely to occur.

♦ Complications

High blood pressure and high cholesterol are the two common complications in Stage 4 Chronic Kidney Disease patients.

What are the treatment options for Stage 4 CKD with FSGS?

Glucocorticoids, cyclosporin A, cyclophosphamide are the commonly used medicines. Sometime, AEEIs and ARBs are used to control high blood pressure and proteinuria.

However, I do not think these common medical treatments are good for the kidneys. The side effects of long term use of medicines can aggravate the patients’ illness condition.

Therefore, I recommend patients take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy that is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
