Can FSGS Patients with Creatinine 1.1 Recover
“Hi, my husband has FSGS. He has a 1.1 creatinine level and takes prednisone. Can he still recover from it?” If you have the similar doubt, this article will help you solve the problem.
About creatinine 1.1
In different hospitals, due to different measurement ways, the creatinine value may be a little different. Generally speaking, creatinine ranges from 0.5 to 1.3 mg/dL. Creatinine 1.1 is still within normal range. Therefore, it is unnecessary for you to worry about it. And normal creatinine level means kidney function is still above 50%, and the disease is in early stage.
FSGS can not be cured.
With FSGS, some glomeruli become scarred partly. The scarred glomeruli can not be revitalized, so FSGS can not be cured. But the earlier you start treatment, the more kidney function you can preserve, and the less possibility for you to have Kidney Failure.
Treatment to help FSGS patients to get recovery
FSGS is often manifested as Nephrotic Syndrome, namely massive proteinuria, heavy swelling, hyperlipidemia and hypoproteinemia. Persistent protein leakage can speed up glomerulosclerosis, so it is of great importance to stop proteinuria timely. Conventional treatment is often to use steroids and immunosuppressants to suppress renal inflammation and reduce proteinuria. But many FSGS patients are steroid-resistant. In such a case, you can try a systemic treatment, namely Nine-Kind Therapy, also known as Detoxification Therapy. This treatment includes Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, etc.
Those therapies can work together to eliminate waste products including the deposited immune complexes from the kidneys and the blood. They can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, they can restore the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse.
After about one week’s treatment, swelling will vanish.
After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria will be reduced.
After about one month’s treatment, FSGS will be under control, and renal function will get improved.
With treatment going on, both your kidney condition and immunity get strengthened, and then you can reduce the relapse of FSGS as much as possible.
