What Symptoms dose FSGS Have

FSGS(focal segmental glomerulosclerosis) is a kind of glomerular disease which can be caused by many conditions and factors. The feature is that only small section of glomerular is damaged and the prognosis is not very good. Because here is scloerosis on glomerular that damaged filtration function. FSGS affects both children and adult. Males are affected slightly more often than females, and it occurs more frequently in African Americans.





Early stage of FSGS may not cause any symptoms. Some patients can see signs by their own, others can be found when they get lab test result.

Here we list some common seen symptoms of FSGS for your reference.

1. Proteinuria.When scar happens, these tiny filters do not work properly. Proteins that are normally retained in the blood are lost in your urine.

2. Swelling. Here are two main reasons that can lead to swelling. One is that protein leak into urine, causing swelling. Another is, kidney function to filtrate water decline, excess fluid may be retained leading to swelling.

3. Kidney failure. Sclerous glomerular damaged renal function to filtrate blood, which can cause symptoms of kidney failure.

4. Scarring of the glomeruli can also contribute to other problems, such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol (elevated levels of fat in the blood).

 5. With protein spilling in urine, some symptoms can come out together which reflect symptoms of nephrotic syndrome:

· High cholesterol levels – which may need to be controlled with a special diet and cholesterol lowering drugs.

· Low thyroid hormone levels – due to loss of thyroid hormone via the kidneys. This can be controlled by thyroid hormone supplements.

Nearly all kind of chronic kidney disease have no obvious symptoms at the early stage. You need do regular medical test to check your health condition and prevent or cure the early signs.

What is The Effective Treatment for FSGS

Have you been plagued by FSGS for long time?

Are you looking for a better treatment but no result?

If your urine protein is still here though taking steroid?

If your doctor told you here is no method to treat this disease except waiting?







What is FSGS?

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a nephrotic syndrome. Up to around 80% of cases of primary FSGS are resistant to steroid treatment. Most such patients with steroid-resistant FSGS will progress to end-stage renal disease.

FSGS treatment

Drugs to suppress your immune system are sometimes offered to people who can tolerate corticosteroids and immunosuppressive drugs. But this approach isn’t effective for everyone. These medications also can have serious side effects.

FSGS is a disease that may relapse. Because scarring in the glomeruli may be permanent, follow-up monitoring is important to assess kidney function.

For people who progress to kidney failure, treatment options include:

· Dialysis. It can replace your kidneys to work, but can not remove the damaged or died kidney cells.

· Kidney transplant. Though it can solve the problem at once, but donor and high expense bring a huge pressure for your family.









What we provide is systematic traditional Chinese medicine treatment

As we know, the reason of FSGS is that your kidney cells are damaged and kidney function declined.

So the purpose of treatment is to obtain a complete remission of proteinuria, a necessary step to improve renal survival and reduce the risk of progression to chronic kidney disease. When this is not possible, the secondary goal is a partial remission of proteinuria. Reduction or remission of proteinuria is the most important factor of renal survival.

Here in our hospital, we will treat this disease by 3 steps:

1. First we will give patient’s a comprehensive test to know the exact kidney lesion. Thus we can know how to treat it.

2. Our Chinese medicine can help discharge toxins out of your body. It can provide a clear environment for our kidney cell growth.

3. Chinese medicine therapies like oral medicine, osmotherapy, medicated foot bath, medicated full bath…They can provide enough nutrition to your kidneys and kidney cells will get restored.

Usually after these 3 steps, patients will see obvious effect within 7-10 days like swelling disappear, more strength, good spirit…

What treatment is the best for Nephrotic Syndrome

Here are four signs to judge nephrotic syndrome(NS) in clinical: a lot of proteinuria, hypoproteinemia, proteinuria and heavy swelling. And heavy swelling is the most important figure of NS.

What are the main treatment for NS?

Nowadays, hormone is the first choice for nephrotic syndrome treatment. We can see successful effect(urine protein and occult blood turn to negative) in short time after hormone treatment. However, it is easy to relapse and many side effects will appear.

So how can we treat nephrotic syndrome more effectively? We think Chinese medicine is the default choice.








After the theory of renal fibrosis was applied to clinical practice, the hospital expert group of nephropathy treatment center found that only we repair damaged nephrons’ function and improve its function, can the fibrosis process be inhibited.

In order to achieve the purpose, it is necessary to use Chinese medicine to enhance kidney function and repair damaged kidney tissues. Besides, we need also restore “mechanical barrier” and “charge barrier” of gloerular basement membrane to completely eliminate urine protein and urine occult blood. This is to treat NS from root.

Apparently, the method that we combine Chinese medicine with Western medicine is the radical way for NS recovery. It indicates that Western medicine treat symptoms shortly to reduce kidney cells damage due to slow effect of Chinese medicine.

Once the targeted traditional Chinese medicine reaches the lesion area, the active ingredients of traditional Chinese medicine can dilate blood vessels of the whole body. By increasing perfusion volume of the whole body, blood and oxygen supply for the damaged cells can fundamentally alleviate the status of renal ischemia and hypoxia.Furthermore,it can reduce continued damage of renal cells.

That will be great if you can also find such treatment in your place. If you didn’t found unluckily, please contact us without hesitation.

Is Protein in Urine Curable

As we all know, urine protein is one important figure of nephritis. Because protein is a kind of nutrition of our body and our normal people will not have protein in urine.

What is proteinuria

Along with fats and sugars, proteins form the major building blocks for our bodies. The right amount of protein is important in our diets, for growth and repair.

Protein is present in the blood; healthy kidneys should only filter tiny(trace) amounts into the urine as most protein molecules are too large for filters(glomeruli)

It is not usual to lose protein in the urine. When this dose happen it is known as “Proteinuria”.Several proteins can be found in the urine, but the most relevant to kidney disease is albumin.

Protein in the urine is not usually obvious , but can be detected by a simple dip-stick test, or sometimes by more sensitive lab tests.

The presence of protein in the urine can act as a warning signal that not all is well with the kidneys.

What dose it mean?

Proteinuria means there is something wrong with the kidney. Some warning signals make it more likely to be an important kidney problem:

Large amounts of protein in the urine.

There are also positive tests for blood in the urine.

Abnormal kidney tests(creatinine or eGFR)

High blood pressure

You are young

Heavy Proteinuria e.g. more than 2-3g per day.

Can it be cured?

If you have temporary or mild proteinuria, you likely won’t need treatment. But if you have consistent proteinuria, you’ll need to treat the underlying condition.

So if you are worrying about your condition, you can contact us and tell us your basic condition for evaluation. Hope you can get recovered soon!

Four Advantages of Traditional Chinese Medicine for Nephrotic Syndrome

Most patients with nephrotic syndrome take western medicines such as prednisone, cyclophosphamide and other medicines for a long period of time during treatment. Gradually patients often have a severe dependence on this during the treatment process, which reduces body’s sensitivity to medicine and reduces the patient’s resistance.

Patients become susceptible to colds, and often relapse attack , not mention to cure. And long-term use of such drugs will also cause certain damage due to the large toxic side effects of such drugs.

Experts from the Nephrology Department of Hebei Hepatopathy Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine (HHHTCM) found that traditional Chinese medicine has great advantages in clinical treatment of this disease in long-term clinical practice. The following describes the characteristics of traditional Chinese medicine in the clinical treatment of this disease:

1.Elimination of urinary protein

Pharmacological studies have proven that many Chinese medicines such as Cordyceps sinensis, Serissa japonica, Astragalus, Dandelion, Forsythia etc. have the function of improving cellular immunity and humoral immunity. We also found through a large number of clinical observations that such medicines can improve Antigen’s scavenging ability, repair the damage of glomerular basement membrane, increase renal blood flow, promote the absorption of fibrous tissue, make glomerular repair and eliminate urine protein.

2.Improve renal function.

Clinical findings show Qingre Jiedu medicines such as Honeysuckle Flower can inhibit the formation of immune complexes and inhibit the formation of glomerular fibrosis. The repair of diseased epithelial tissues has obvious effects. Medicines to activate blood and soften stiffness such as saffron, salvia, and Red Paeony Root can relax renal vascular smooth muscle, relieve vasospasm, improve renal blood flow, so as to protect the kidney.

3.Reducing the side effects of English medicine

It solves the rebound effect of steroids. In the process of applying steroids and immunosuppressants, patients often have various problems like immune disorder, immunity decline, relapse, gastrointestinal reactions and bone marrow suppression. In clinical treatment, we will give treatment to tonify spleen and kidneys, warm and improve renal Yang so as to relieve the side effecs of steroids and immunosuppresive agents., regulate immune function as well as solve the problem of relapse due to steroids reduce.

4.Improve body’s sensitivity to steroids

Less than half of patients with nephrotic syndrome are sensitive to steroids, and it is difficult to use immunosuppressive medicines. But after the proper application of traditional Chinese medicine treatment, most patients can get good clinical effect because their body’s insensitivity to medicines turn sensitive. However, the application of combined Chinese medicine and Western medicine must be based on syndrome differentiation and dialectical treatment. Specific treatment solution for individual case, can expect satisfactory results.

Here are many  advantages of traditional Chinese medicine in treating nephrotic syndrome.It is dialectical ,individualized and targeted treatment that can achieve very good treatment results. And under the guidance of the overall concept,we can comprehensively grasp the changes and development of the kidney, combine prevention and cure, treat both symptoms and disease from the root.

How To Do When Steroids-induced Full Moon Face Happen to NS Patients?

The full moon face is one of the side effects of taking steroids for nephrotic syndrome friends. Everything is a double-edged sword, and steroids is no exception. Steroids have powerful immunosuppressive effects, so they will cause side effects in the treatment of nephrotic syndrome. For kidney friends, the full moon face will cause a serious psychological burden, nevertheless, full moon face induced by steroids can be thinned down. Then how to do when steroids-taking induce full moon face?

Measures and Recommendations

Choose the right steroids

Choose the right steroids. Each steroids has its own characteristics. Patients can choose steroids that are suitable for their condition and bring minor side effects for treatment according to the strength of steroids immunosuppressive effect, the strength of water and sodium retention, and the accuracy of the site of action. By this, full moon face can be effectively reduced.

Reduce the dose of steroids

If steroids reduce, it can not give the expected effect, what to do? In this case, some immunosuppressants can be used.

Combine with the Traditional Chinese Medicine

Symptoms caused by steroids belong to the syndrome of yin deficiency and yang hyperactivity in TCM syndrome differentiation. In clinical cases, patients can be given, Zhibai Dihuang Pill, Yu Nv Jian, Yi Guan Jian, etc., can eliminate the side effects of steroids medicine.

Traditional Chinese medicine can not only eliminate the steroids dependence caused by atrophy of the adrenal cortex, but also prevent the occurrence of edema, hypertension and hyperlipidemia. There is another function of nourishing yin and clearing heat-eliminating obesity and full moon face. It is also because our Chinese medicine therapy is very good that it has attracted a large number of international friends to come to our hospital for treatment.

Proper Eating and Exercise

Everyone knows about low-fat, low-sugar, and high-vitamin diets, and you need to eat more which can reduce swelling and dampness, such as wax gourd, corn, and mung bean sprouts etc.

In regard of exercise, whole body exercise is very necessary, mainly face exercise, such as chewing gum, chewing air also works. Washing your face with cold water can speed up the breakdown of fats and help restore facial shape.
