Treatment for FSGS with Proteinuria and Creatinine 1.6FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis) is one of the most common causes of primary glomerular disease in adults. Glomeruli are the tiny blood vessels filtering blood passing through kidneys. When they are damaged, FSGS patients have proteinuria and creatinine 1.6.

Causes

● Proteinuria: For healthy patients, most of protein are reabsorbed by the kidneys. Then kidney function is damaged, large amount of protein leaks out with urine. Proteinuria means the leaking amount is more than 3.5 grams per 24 hours.

● Creatinine 1.6: Creatinine is the waste product of muscle metabolism, and is discharged by the kidneys. When glomeruli are damaged by inflammations on the basement membrane, creatinine cannot be discharged by the kidneys adequately.

Treatment for FSGS

Treatment goal of Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis includes controlling symptoms and protect kidney function. Therefore, treatment options are:

● Medicines: You doctor may prescribe you some medicines to relive symptoms including high creatinine and proteinuria. Hypertensive drugs (AEC inhibitors and ARBs) and diuretics immunosuppressants may be given.

Note: Since long term of steroid therapy may lead to serious toxicity, patient counseling and close monitoring for adverse effects are essential before embarking on such a protracted regimen.

Tradition Chinese Medicine (TCM): Unlike over-the-counter medicines that can only control symptoms, TCM can treat FSGS from the root. Our experts choose Chinese herbs according to the patient’s own illness condition. They have the function of blood vessels dilation, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation and extracellular matrixes degradation. Oral medicines used in our hospital are Mai Kang Composition and Chinese herbal decoction. In addition, some external applications like Hot Compress Therapy, Medicated Bath and Acupuncture, etc.
