FSGS is characterized by scarring in kidneys. In some cases, FSGS progresses slowly, and patients’ kidney function level declines gradually. Then, patients must want to know how long can patients live with slow progressed FSGS kidney disease.
As one common glomerular disease, FSGS can cause kidneys to fail to filter blood, regulate blood pressure, maintain electrolyte balance, and so on. As time goes on, some of these complications may threaten patients’ life.
As patients’ illness condition changes from person to person, their life expectancy is also different. Some patients can live as long as general population, while some other patients have kidney failure only within several years. In view of this, some therapies should be taken to improve their kidney condition and expand their life expectancy.
If you are suffering from FSGS, you can try the following methods with doctor’s guidance.
- Modify their diet plan and lifestyle based on their illness condition
A correct diet plan and healthy lifestyle can help manage patients’ complications and slow down the progression of FSGS. At least, patients should follow a low-sodium and low-protein diet plan and avoid unhealthy living habits.
- Take correct medicines and drugs
With the progression of FSGS, patients will have a series of symptoms and complications such as proteinuria, high blood pressure, hematuria, and so on. According to patients’ problems, doctors will prescribe correct medicines to manage their problems.
- Reverse kidney damage actively
Only if damaged kidneys come back to normal, patients can live with their own kidneys safely. The key is to protect the residual kidney functioning tissues and reverse impaired kidney damage.
The above therapies can help prolong FSGS patients’ lifespan. To learn more about these therapies, you can leave a message below.
