How to Manage Protein in urine for FSGSWhen someone has FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerular Sclerosis), he or she will present many symptoms. Protein in urine (proteinuria), hematuria, high blood pressure, kidney insufficiency and steroid insensitivity, etc, are all symptoms of FSGS. Among those, proteinuria is the most common one.

For FSGS patients, proteinuria is an indicator of the renal function. Heavy proteinuria will accelerate renal function deterioration. If it is uncontrolled, patients will approach to kidney failure in a few years possibly, so how to manage protein in urine is an urgent problem.

Why do I have proteinuria with FSGS?

From the name “FSGS”, we can know it is a disease in which there is something wrong with a part of glomeruli, which are called “blood filters”. In normal condition, fluid and other small molecular harmful substances flow out though glomerular capillaries. However, protein, as one essential nutrition for the body, is usually not filtered out. In the condition of FSGS, some glomeruli are damaged, letting abnormal amounts of protein pass through, thus proteinuria comes up.

How can I manage protein in urine?

To manage proteinuria, you should combine western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine. Otherwise, proteinuria will come back again and again. Here are some basic ways to manage proteinuria.

Western medicines: Some certain medications like ACEI, ARBS and immunosuppressive agents are commonly used to control proteinuria, but if you are the“resistant type (still have lots of protein in urine after taking enough steroids for at least four months)”, you could try TCM (traditional Chinese medicine).

Traditional Chinese medicine: Except the common oral Chinese medicines, Hot Compress Therapy, Medicated Bath, Enema Therapy, and Acupuncture are all available and effective therapies for reducing proteinuria.

It should be noted that all those Chinese medicine therapies have a common thing—treating proteinuria through repairing the damaged glomerular filtration membrane. With active ingredients in Chinese medicine, blood circulation of glomerular capillaries becomes fluent. Therefore, glomerular filtration function can come back to normal. Finally, proteinuria of FSGS will be remitted completely.
