Is There Any Way of Getting rid of Stretch Marks for FSGS PatientsAnswer: FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis) is a rare disease that attacks the kidney’s filtering units causing serious scarring which leads to permanent kidney damage and even failure. The scarred glomeruli can not be repaired, so FSGS is incurable. That is to say, you have to live with it for long-term. To bring it under control, steroids and immunosuppressants are often used. Those medications can reduce protein leakage and slow down the progression to kidney failure, but they have a lot of side effects. Just as you mentioned, you have stretch marks. That is because they can break down connective tissue in skin and make your skin lose elasticity. Besides, with them, it is likely for you to have an increased appetite, which can make you gain weight, which can cause stretch marks as well.

Ways to get rid of stretch marks.

-To apply olive oil to your skin, which is helpful for you to reduce stretch marks.

-To apply 3 times a day with hyaluronic acid gel. And take orally with vitamin E soft capsule.

-To use laser light to remove them.

However, these ways are only temporary medical relief. As long as you are still with FSGS, you may have to take steroids and immunosuppressants, which can cause the occurrence of stretch marks again. Therefore, you had better find out a way to help you have a permanent control of FSGS and reduce its relapse as much as possible. Here we recommend you to try a systemic treatment, which is named as Toxin-Removing Treatment, also known as Detoxification Therapy. It can make the whole internal environment good for kidney self-healing and other medication application. After about one week’s treatment, edema will disappear. After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria will reduce. After about one month’s treatment, your FSGS will be under control, and renal condition will get improved. With treatment going on, your disease will get well controlled, so it won’t get relapse easily.

There is way to help you get rid of stretch marks, but the fundamental way is to reduce the application of steroids and immunosuppressants. For alternative treatment for FSGS, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
