How to Delay Dialysis with Stage 4 FSGS and GFR 25

Posted: by Dr.Zhao      Time: 2015-05-01 09:32

Topics: FSGS Dialysis

Details: I have FSGS with Stage 4 FSGS and GFR 25. What kind of treatment can I expect to control or at least delay dialysis or kidney transplant.

Expert Answer

In stage 4, patients can still live with their own kidneys. This is because kidneys can filter blood relatively normally. Therefore, we should take some therapies to improve patients’ kidney condition and delay dialysis.

According to the causes of FSGS, patients can try Immunotherapy which is created to treat kidney disease caused by immune disorder.

This therapy consists of six steps: immune diagnosis, immune blockage, immune tolerance, immune clearance, immune regulation and immune protection.

This therapy can not only remove immune complexes, regulate immune system and protect the remaining kidney functioning tissues from damage but also rebuild kidney filtering structure and repair damaged kidney cells. Finally, patients’ kidney function increases to some extent and their FSGS is controlled very well.

As long as patients’ kidney function is higher than 15%, they don’t need to begin dialysis. However, the whole treatment plan should depend on patients’ illness condition. If you would like, we can help you to arrange a correct treatment plan.
