Dialysis: Can Dialysis Prolong the Lifespan of FSGS with Kidney Failure

2013-10-12 11:39| Font Size A A A

FSGS is the primary glomerular disease characterized by glomerular damage (only part of glomerular). It is manifested by nephrotic syndrome, blood urine and high blood pressure. Kidney failure is also one of the complications of FSGS. FSGS patients with kidney failure may be suggested to do dialysis. But can dialysis prolong the lifespan of FSGS with kidney failure?

Normally, it will take patients with FSGS 2 to 5 years to develop kidney failure, but it differs from case to case. It relies on many situations, like the condition of the patients, the treatment response, the diet and complications.

It sounds like kidney failure is the most serious stage of FSGS. That’s right. When the disease progresses into kidney failure, the majority of kidney function will be lost with only 15-29% left. Because of kidney dysfunction, the waste products and toxins cannot be discharged. At this time, patients are always advised to do dialysis before kidney transplant. Some patients may doubt that can dialysis prolong the lifespan of FSGS with kidney failure?

Kidney cannot complete its task to filter the waste and toxins. Dialysis functions to replace kidney to filter the waste and toxins out. Once the waste and toxins are discharged, the condition will be improved.

With dialysis, the lifespan can be prolonged. It is generally believed in clinic that the lifespan will extend 5 years on dialysis. But it is not the exact number. If the condition is well controlled, you can live a longer life. But if your are not response well to dialysis, the lifespan can be shortened.

Dialysis indeed can prolong the lifespan of FSGS with kidney failure, but dialysis is not the best choice to patients with FSGS because it is just a replacement treatment. There is other alternative, for example, the Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which aims to improve the kidney function.
