Proteinuria Still At 4+ with Cyclosporine for FSGS

Posted: by Dr.Zhao      Time: 2015-04-03 08:30

Topics: FSGS Protein in Urine FSGS Symptoms

Details: I have FSGS for many years and was found with severe proteinuria several weeks ago. Then, my doctor prescribes cyclosporine for me, but my proteinuria is still at 4+ now. What should I do?

Expert Answer

When tiny kidney filters are scarred by FSGS gradually, different degrees of protein may leak from the kidney into urine, forming proteinuria. Because proteinuria can cause further damage to kidney filtering structure, doctors usually recommend their patients to control this symptom timely and effectively. What is more, proteinuria is one factor to affect FSGS prognosis.

Proteinuria 4+ means your protein leakage is still quite severe and cyclosporine doesn’t work very well for you. In view of this, you had better change your medicines or even accept systemic therapies to treat your kidney disease from the root.

In addition to cyclosporine, prednisone, glucocorticoid, Cellcept, thunder god vine, etc, also show effect on reducing proteinuria and slowing down the progression of FSGS kidney disease. However, all of these medicines can only ease patients’ symptoms but not do a lot to treat FSGS fundamentally.

If patients want to improve their kidney condition and overcome kidney scarring, you are suggested to try Clear Blood Pollution Therapy. After beginning to do this therapy, I believe you won’t be disappointed. Hopefully, you can get recovery from proteinuria and FSGS quickly.
