Causes and Natural Treatment for FSGS in KidsFocal Segmental Glomerular Sclerosis (FSGS) is not a single disease, but a pattern of kidney damage. It is the most common causes of Nephrotic Syndrome, especially in children and adolescents. Here, follow me to learn the causes and treatments for FSGS in kids.

Actually, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis can be explained as follows:

-is identified by the scarring, or “sclerosis” of the kidney

-damaged glomeruli

Well then, what can cause children suffer from the kidney damage?

According to clinical practice, we have found that FSGS can be a result of autoimmune disease, in which the body attacks itself without cause, or the result of a pre-existing medical condition such as the following:

Kidney defects from birth

Urine back-ups in the kidney


Obstructive sleep apnea

Sickle cell anemia

In addition, it is sometimes linked to a hereditary gene. Having a family member with FSGS may increase the chance of acquiring the disease.

Based on these possible causes, what treatments can help children with FSGS?

In many countries, the doctor will recommend steroids to kids for stopping some symptoms like proteinuria, swelling or edema, hyperkalemia and so on. However, long-term intake of western medications also can induce some side effects, thus affecting body health.

Fortunately, in China, Shijiazhuang Hetaiheng Hospital, China, we mainly do use natural treatments from Traditional Chinese Medicine. If necessary, some western medications also be as the assistant therapy.

Immunotherapy can be regarded as the most effective treatment for autoimmune disorders. Different from conventional therapies, the therapy focuses on treating Nephrotic Syndrome from the root, and it has three obvious therapeutic effects.

1. Regulate immune system: This can prevent new immune complexes from depositing in kidneys again and protect remaining kidney functioning tissues from damage.

2. Remove pathogenic factors: During treatment process, various blood purification methods and Chinese medicines may be used to eliminate pathogenic factors from the kidneys.

3. Rebuild glomerular filtering system: Once glomeruli can filter blood normally, extra fluid will be removed and protein will be kept in the body. Therefore, patients’ swelling and proteinuria ease obviously.
