FSGS is one condition in which scarring develops in kidney filters, and patients with FSGS have different prognosis. In severe cases, FSGS finally aggravates into kidney failure, so patients need to take kidney transplant. However, FSGS has a high recurrent rate after kidney transplantation. Do you know what risk factors affect its recurrence?
Today, follow me to find the answer below.
1. The source of transplanted kidneys
Even though FSGS isn’t one obvious genetic kidney disorders, the related research indeed proves that FSGS has a inherited tendency. If the donated kidney comes from patients’ direct relative, the recurrent rate of FSGS after kidney transplantation will be higher than 50%.
2. Abnormal immune system
The onset of FSGS is related to immune disorder, because various antibodies are found in their immunofluorescence examination. After kidney transplantation, the abnormal immune system may cause immune complexes to accumulate in the kidneys again. Finally, FSGS kidney disease recurs easily.
3. Unhealthy lifestyle or environmental factors
In some cases, FSGS is secondary to infections, poisoning damage and the use of some medications. If patients can avoid these problems, they can find their recurrent risk will decline a lot.
Similar to IgA Nephropathy, FSGS also has a high recurrent risk after kidney transplant. From this point, patients should take activate methods to regulate their immune system and protect their kidneys.
Since FSGS is due to immune disorder, Immunotherapy is helpful. Through the six treatment steps, not only immune complexes can be excreted out but also patients’ immune system is normalized. What’s more, Immunotherapy can provide more oxygen and nutritions for impaired kidney cells and activating the self-healing system of these cells, so kidneys can recover to work gradually.
