2013-10-12 10:19| Font Size A A A

What’s the life expectancy of FSGS with dialysis? Patients who are attacked by FSGS must be concerned with this question. Now please follow this article and I hope this article can give some answers.

FSGS refers to the glomerular disease and only some of the glomerular are damaged. It is a leading cause of nephrotic syndrome. You must have experienced a high level of protein in urine and swelling. It is mostly seen in children and teenagers. Adults who are affected by FSGS have more possibility to progress into kidney failure than children.

If the condition develop into kidney failure, which means the kidney function only remains 15-29%, you have to go through dialysis. However, can dialysis prolong the lifespan of FSGS patients? What’s the life expectancy of FSGS with dialysis?

To be honest, there is no exact answer to this question. Many factors must be taken into consideration, such as different illness condition, complications, nursing and the reaction to treatment.

When kidney failure reaches, more glomerular are affected. The residual glomerular can not maintain the normal ability and the waste product and toxins can not be filtered out. It must finish its work by virtue of the external method. Dialysis is often the choice. It can help kidney discharge the wastes and toxins out of our body and clean the blood.

Dialysis indeed can prolong the life expectancy of patients with FSGS. If the patients have a good respond to the treatment and have no serious complications, the average life expectancy is 5 to 6 years. But it is not for everyone. If the condition is controlled well, it may be 10 years, if not, it can be only several months.

Though the life expectancy of FSGS with dialysis can be prolonged, dialysis is just a replacement therapy. If you want a better life, you must try the curative treatment.
